Greta is a semi-feral who was abandoned by the people who took her in as a kitten. She originally came out of a colony, and very quickly reverted back to a feral state once she was abandoned. Unfortunately, this left her permanently distrustful of people and unadoptable.
Mary came to us from a hoarding situation. She is feral, 90% blind, but loves to be outdoors so she hangs out with her friends in the small shed. She especially adores Junior.
Junior is an incredibly sweet old guy that is FIV+ and was recently rescued from a feral colony.
Ms Marx came from a local business where some kind employees were feeding her. Unfortunately, that went against company policy so we took her in so that she would have a place to go.
Guiness came from the same hoarding place as Miss Mary. He is incredibly sweet, but also blind. Because of his handicap he does not do well with other cats. It stresses him too much. He would love a home where he could be an only child. In the meantime, he is perfectly content to hang with us.
Hazel came to us from a colony where it was too dangerous for her to be returned. Although she is not feral, she definitely lives up to her reputation of being quite temperamental. That along with being FIV + makes it difficult to find her a home. We love her, though. She is quite a character!
Felicia is an old girl that we took from a colony when it became apparent, she was having major dental issues. Two surgeries later and she was able to eat comfortably again. She now enjoys long naps with her friends. Missy came from the same colony. We took Missy in when it became apparent, she could not stay in the colony due to old age and health issues. Please let us know if you would like to sponsor either one of these old ladies.
Luke is a feral that was being fed in the basement of a man's house. The man passed away and the house was scheduled to be torn down, so we trapped him (along with 2 others) and took them in.
Jessie (and her brother Woody) came to FOF as a 14-week-old kittens in November of 2015. Unfortunately, because we did not get them at a younger age, neither has become socialized enough to be adopted and so will remain with us.
Cleo was rescued by a family when she was abandoned and pregnant. Unfortunately, their circumstances changed and they were unable to keep her due to foreclosure. She is semi feral and not adoptable. Although she doesn’t want to be petted by people, she is happy to hang out with the other cats at FOF
MaMa Q came to us with her litter of four kittens. She was found with her kittens in an old barbecue pit, where she had made a nest for them. All of her kittens were adopted, but MaMa Q is feral, so she remained with FOF
Audo came to us as a stray from the CT. Audubon Center in hopes he would be friendly. Unfortunately, he is feral and not adoptable.
Frankie came to FOF from a colony because of health issues. He is approximately 7-8 years old. He was not able to be returned to his colony because of health issues. He has severe arthritis, has difficulty getting around, and is blind in one eye from Glaucoma. He is very feral and we took him in when it became apparent that he would not survive in the colony.
Bosco was the last surviving cat in a colony. The caretaker of the colony asked us if we would take her as she feared she would not survive the winter alone. She has been with us since December 2013. She has gone from being totally feral to friendly enough that she enjoys being petted.
Blanca came to FOF in May of 2016 from another organization to be spayed and vaccinated. Unfortunately, they organization was unable to take her back, so she will remain with us. She is very pretty and wants to be friendly, but is not ready to trust people yet.
Nugget came to us from another local animal shelter in 2014. She had been trapped on a busy highway as a feral. She was not adoptable, but has thrived with us. She can now be petted when approached slowly.
Callie was brought to FOF by a local man who had trapped her and her kittens at the condo where he lived. Most of the kittens tamed up and were adopted, but Callie was too old to be socialized. Sponsored by Mike Micalizzi Contracting.
Velvet – Velvet came to FOF in December of 2103 from another animal welfare organization when it became apparent that she would never be adoptable. She is extremely timid and wants nothing to do with people.
Mandy was trapped in the Northville area of New Milford in May of 2015. She is a very sweet girl, but is skittish around people. She had no colony to go back to and is not adoptable and therefore will remain at FOF.
Smokey was brought to us by a woman when he showed up at her home as a stray. He is not aggressive, but very distrustful of humans which is why he will remain with us.
Igs (short for Ignatz) came to us (along with her sibling) just 8 hours after being born and abandoned by their mother. They were both already infested with fleas and maggots, at 8 hours old! Unfortunately, Igs' sibling did not survive. At about 4 months, we discovered that Igs has a condition called mega-colon. She will be going to VA Tech in the near future for surgery to have the majority of her colon removed. If the surgery is successful, she will be up for adoption. If it is not, she will live here with us for the remainder of her life.
Diesel was rescued from a truck stop by a good Samaritan. He is a semi-feral that just wants to be left alone to hang out with his buddies. He is not aggressive, but is very leery of humans.
Bogart is a semi-feral that came from a very bad city colony where he was constantly beat up by the other cats. He is FIV+ and absolutely does not get along with other cats so he could not be returned. He loves to be with people, but his social skills are very lacking which makes him unadoptable.
Daisy came from another rescue after a fire temporarily closed their shelter. Because she is feral, her chances of finding a good home were slim, so we kept her here at FOF.
Rosa came from a hoarding situation that had to be shut down. Because she is feral her prospects were very poor so we took her in. She is incredibly intelligent and sweet, but ferocious when need be.
