Living The Good Life!
Here are some of the cats and kittens Front-Porch Felines have found homes for.
In the course of trapping and feeding feral cats, we often find cats who aren’t feral at all.
These felines have been dumped, or maybe their caretakers just decided to move and left their cat behind. Some were adopted out by us. Others were adopted through rescues or shelters. See our partners in adoption below.
Named the triplets, because these 3 were identical. Their mom was part of a mass trapping and these 3 were born just hours before trapping their mom. The mom nursed them after her spay, they stayed until 8 weeks old.
Brutus was a very tame feral kitten. At 6 weeks, he climbed Brenda's leg and cried. She took him home, of course. good thing she did, because Brutus had a urinary blockage and would have died without surgery.
Sinatra, brother of Mellencamp was a feral 4 month old. Right after neutering he started being social. Rare for his age. After a few weeks, he was able to move on to one of our adoption partners and a new home.
Mellencamp was trapped with his brother Sinatra. 4 months old also, but not inclined to be social. He took a bit more work than Sinatra, but was able to be tamed up and turned over for adoption, where he found his forever home.
Henry was an adult cat caught up in a trapping. He seemed feral and it wasn't until driving him to his neuter, that his tame side showed. He was a total sweetheart and one of our partners found him a home in 1 day.
Fifi was trapped at one of our colonies with her brother Frenchie. This was a wild group of feral kittens, that required quite a bit of socializing before they could go on to be adopted.
Fifi was able to find a new, safe home.
Frenchie was feral and also a bit shy after socialization. We worked with him a couple months and he was turned over to an adoption partner and now has a loving home. He was buddies with Stinker Butt.
Stinker Butt, was one of our more difficult kitties to socialize (at this point) At 6 weeks, he was very stubborn and wild! Like having a squirrel in the bathroom. Eventually, he came around and was able to find his forever home.
Poppy was picked up at a neighbors property. She was injured and limping. After a vet visit, it was discovered she had a broken leg, and even worse a serious mouth injury. With help from another rescue, Poppy received treatment and found a safe home.
Brenda found Sol on the exit ramp to a highway. She followed her to a parking lot, where this sweet little cat was living by the dumpster. She was completely emaciated and eating vomit on the pavement. She now has a forever home and food.
Raisin was a spunky little kitten trapped at one of our colonies. Our camera showed her often out completely alone. Cute as could be and unlike the rest of the kittens trapped here, she tamed up in only 1 day.
Ellroy was dumped at one of our feeding stations. Completely tame, and a sweetheart. He was very ill with an ear infection and upper respiratory issues. He was here for about a week, then turned over to an adoption partner.
Bond is from a local feral colony. He still lives in the colony. He was very hard to trap. He was finally trapped, because he a huge scab that covered his whole head. It required surgery and extended recovery time.
Bill is part of a group cat 8 cats taken from a hoarding situation. Poor Bill had been stored
in a dog carriers for years. Highly traumatized, one of our fosters worked with him, but he's still shy and looking for his forever home.
Krispi, another one of the 8 kitties stored in dog carriers for years. She was young and very upbeat and playful. Quite ill when we took her in, after 3 months clearing her medical issues, she was adopted in a wonderful home.
Mellie, another cat taken from the same hoarder. She had multiple medical issues. She needed her eye removed, a hernia repair and had a severe URI. Mellie, Silvie and Elf were adopted together into a wonderful home.
Little Elfie also came from the hoarder. She was very shy at first, but after she was spayed, lost her shyness. Apparently she had internal cysts that caused her a lot of pain. Once taken care of, she came out of her shell. Adopted with Mellie & Silvie.
Silvie, yet another cat from the hoarder. Silvie was outgoing and friendly from the get go. She was also very ill with an ear infection and URI for months. We had Silvie, Elf, Mellie and Krispi for 4 months receiving medical treatment.
Bingo was stored in a dog crate, like Bill at the hoarder's house. She was extremely shy, but healthy. She is now out of her shell, after a year, but still waiting to be adopted and find her forever home.
Tolstoy was also stored in a dog crate for years. He was shy at first, but within a few weeks he was able to start interacting with people again and show his sweet side. He was turned over to one of our partners and adopted.
