At Forgotten Cats, our mission is to reduce the unwanted cat
population without killing and to stop the suffering of the thousands
of kittens born to abandoned, homeless cats.
We do this by
working with colony caretakers to trap, sterilize, vaccinate, and
return every cat within a colony. We provide the necessary medical
treatment for sick or injured feral cats, stray cats, and kittens. We are working to find
homes for adoptable cats and kittens. We also provide education
about spay neuter, and we are assisting other cat rescue groups with trap,
neuter, and return programs.
Check us out, and please consider
lending a hand. With your help, we can make a difference!
In 2017 we sterilized over 9500 cats and adopted out over 1600!
Forgotten Cats needs your help to keep our doors open to sterilize 10,000 cats and adopt out 900 cats a year. If you have it in your heart to allow Forgotten Cats to continue with its rescue work, check
out our new Action Center to see how you can help.
In order to provide care to the many, many animals that need our help, we need
volunteers. There are many ways in which you can help our organization, from
foster care to adoption center help to warehouse help to fundraising.
If you are interested in helping an organization that is actually making
a difference in the lives of stray and feral cats, please
find out more about volunteer opportunities.
Domestic cats purr at about 26 cycles per second, the same frequency as an idling diesel engine. They start purring at one week old and purr both when inhaling and when exhaling. Young cats purr in monotone but older cats purr in two to three resonant notes. More cat facts...
