Our Featured Cat...

Esmerelda Sitting

Our Good Witch


MIA is a beautiful and mysterious kitty, with beautiful multi-colored ghostly patterns on her soft, luxurious fur.

MIA is a demure, shy but loving kitty. She would love to sit on your lap and be a special friend. She is quiet, gentle and would make a good companion for a quiet adult home. 

Although shy at our adoption site, with the right people, she will bloom once she is comfortable and secure in her new home. 

More about Mia

Spayed/Neutered • Up-to-date with routine shots • House trained




Lucy is a senior Chihuahua that was injured and abandoned and left in a box with a note in front of a local vet office. FFF was notified and the dog was transferred to us for evaluation by our veterinarian, Mike Evans, at Animal Care Clinic. It was determined that she had a long term, untreated three broken bones in her front leg and frozen shoulder muscles. The prognosis for saving that limb was nil.

Medically, amputation of the leg was the only option. Since this was a long term untreated injury, she had already learned to compensate with her other three legs. Dr. Evans did the amputation and Lucy is recovering well at her foster home. She will become available for adoption after October 31st, 2015.

Lucy is a sweet, loving senior dog that loves to be carried and cuddled. She has adjusted to her foster home with kitties and is learning to use a pee pad. She would be ideal as a companion for a quiet adult home and particularly, good companion for a senior person(s).

If you would like to meet any of the animals listed on the FFF or Petfinder sites,

you can contact Sally.

         Ages of our cats and kittens are approximate and may reflect the age        
at which the cat entered F.F.F.'s Program, and/or based on our vet's best estimate.
F.F.F. makes every effort to update the ages of our cats periodically.

        When inquiring regarding one of our cats, please ask regarding the current age.     

Our critters are sorted alphabetically as follows:

F.F.F. Policies

Adopting a Friend

An interview, application and home visit is required, followed by a 5-7 day trial visit of the selected pet in the prospective adoptive home. At the end of the trial period, FFF will evaluate the trial visit and determine the suitability for adoption. If deemed necessary by FFF, a final home visit is required. An Animal Care Adoption Contract is required to be signed by the adopter and a legal FFF representative, upon final FFF approval. The adopter(s) must be of legal age to sign a legal contract.

FFF does NOT allow FFF animals to be given as gifts or adopted for third parties.

FFF would appreciate a contribution to help offset our veterinary costs which include:

  • Combo test for FeLV and FIV (feline leukemia and feline AIDS)
  • First FVRCP
  • Spay or Neuter
  • Pain medications for recovery
  • De-worming
  • Flea control
  • Microchip

Special circumstance adoptions are available for eligible adopters.


In an effort to provide our F.F.F. graduates, their families, and our dedicated F.F.F. fosters/staff with peace of mind, we have begun micro chipping all of our adoptees. This will provide a safety net for our formerly friendless felines that go on to their new homes.

F.F.F. is listed as the secondary contact in the event that an emergency or unforeseen circumstance causes them to be lost, stolen or strayed. This should make sure that our F.F.F. adoptees will always have a friend if they are in need and always be "formerly friendless".


Under special circumstances, we show our cats by appointments in the evenings during the work week. Availability of the cats or kittens for appointment depends on the availability of the foster and transportation arrangements. If you see a cat or kitten you are interested in on our website, contact Sally via our email or by phone to check on the availability of that cat or kitten for evening appointments.

Adoption Criteria

As a rule, F.F.F. does not offer kittens below twelve-to-fourteen weeks of age for adoption. All F.F.F. cats and kittens are combo tested for feline AIDS and feline Leukemia prior to adoption. Our veterinarians have advised us that the testing for these diseases is not accurate or dependable below twelve-to-fourteen weeks of age. Therefore, we will not release any cat or kitten for adoption until we can be assured of an accurate test result.

It is F.F.F.'s philosophy that we will not knowingly adopt any cat or kitten into your home that we wouldn't place in our own homes. We appreciate your understanding.
