F.F.F. Easter Announcements


They are CUTE! ... BUT are you ready for a bunny?

the easter bunnyAll too often well intentioned people adopt bunnies ..especially at EASTER.. as gifts or playmates for children. Alas, when the novelty wears off, the bunnies are too often dumped at our local Shelters, let loose to fend for themselves or worse, injured or killed by dogs and/or other predators.

F.F.F. would love to adopt some of our bunnies to you when you think you are ready. We are fortunate to have an expert "bunny person" to answer all your questions and advise you on the best way to introduce a bunny into your home, to other pets and to your children.

As for bunnies at EASTER.... or as gifts, instead, consider fostering or donating to a local Rabbit Rescue/Shelter or.... we prefer to

In keeping with the season, Petunia and I will have on "paw" a variety of Easter candy favorites...

chocolate easter bunnies

Including chocolate bunnies! Our snacks of chocolates and candies are for people.

Please keep them away from cats/pets as they are TOXIC!



If you see an F.F.F. cat/kitten that you are interested in, contact Sally via email and/or phone to see if an evening appointment is available for showing that cat/kitten.

Petunia and I wish you and yours a safe and wonderful EASTER.

Sally and Petunia

Special Announcement

We are humbled and honored to have received the Rescue Award from SimplyCatBreeds.org for recognition of our efforts to provide rescue services to needy "formerly friendless felines". We have shared their commendation below.

We at SimplyCatBreeds.org are pleased to present you with a Cat Rescue Award for excellence in helping needy cats who just need a warm home and some love. We take pride in acknowledging the best organizations around the country with our special award emblem, recognizing them for their outstanding work - Friends of the Formerly Friendless is absolutely an organization we place among those that need recognition.

Thank you for all the work you and your organization provides for cats in need. We know exactly how difficult and thankless a task it can be, so we hope this little token helps even a little bit.

While we are honored to have received this recognition, our work and story would not be possible without our dedicated and hard working, fosters, community support, compassionate veterinarians and excellent web master/website designer. We will display the award medallion proudly on our websites in recognition of all their efforts to help Friends of the Formerly Friendless in their Rescue mission.
