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.
Midnight was also stored in a dog carrier for years. Very shy and scared, but sweet. She was also healthy, like the other cats stored in carriers. After about a month, she was turned over to an adoption partner and found her forever home.
These 3 feral kittens were pretty wild when trapped at 3 months. Very good looking kittens. We socialized them in about 6 weeks, and when they were "nice kittens" turned over to one of our adoption partners. All found homes.
Stormy Drain was trapped by Brenda and was living in a storm drain. He was tame, but terrified. His owners moved away and left him. He was very sweet, and after a good clean up, was a beautiful cat. Stormy found his forever home with one of our partners.
Spirit was trapped at one of our feral colonies. Her mom has been very stubborn and is the only colony cat Brenda can't catch. She always has 1 or2 sweet kittens. Little Spirit was healthy and purring as soon as she got out a few hisses.
Opie, was picked up a t a neighbors. This little kitten couldn't see out of his eyes at all, they were so crusted over. After a few days on eye meds and lots of yummy food, Opie was as good as new.
These 4 were trapped at a neighbors. Little Fluffy was uncooperative, refusing the trap. she finally had to be pulled out of an old tire, hissing and spitting. These 4 were with us about 6 weeks being socialized. Sweethearts.
These kittens were trapped the day after the 4 previous kittens. We were full! It was up and down with these guys, but eventually we were able to get them healthy, social and sweet kittens. We miss them!
Archie was trapped with his sister Veronica. Unfortunately, little Veronica didn't make it. Dani, our foster's daughter fell in love with Archie. They were inseparable, and Archie was adopted into this great home.
We have had numerous bottle babies. Sometimes moms die or don't have enough milk. This is 2 groups we had here at the same time. 2 litters of tiny bottle babies. These kiddos arrived at about 1 week old, all of them survived.
Murphy's was in quarantine here, after his 3 sibling were euthanized at a local shelter.We thought he would be better here, where he could be treated if he got sick. He did not get sick, and was later turned in for adoption. Super sweet kitten!
Crabby Appleton, renamed Appleton after socialization. He was a very tough nut. His 2 sibling were sweet, but he was having none of that. His socialization took a lot of time and patience, but finally Appleton realized the error of his ways.
Sherlock and Watson were trapped at the same colony, but not related. Sherlock was very shy, Watson was able to be handled almost immediately. As you can see, both were tamed up and able to be adopted.
Bibi was a joy. Trapped as a 4 month old feral, he was set in his ways. Brenda worked with him for 2 months. From a cage, to bathroom, then on to become a member of the household. He was adopted to a family and seen with Zoe.
Pancake was trapped with 7 other older kittens 6-8 months. She had a severe injury on her jaw, needing stitches. While healing up from her injuries, she showed signs of liking people. After a couple months, she was able to find her forever home.
Mojo & Spunky, siblings to Appleton. Mojo was one sick kitten when we trapped him. His eyes were crusted over and he couldn't see, we'll spare you other details. Spunky was healthy. Both were able to be handled and socialized very fast. adopted together.
Smudge showed up in Brenda's shed. Probably dumped, but had a tipped ear, so she thought he was feral. As time went out, she realized Smudge was not feral, but shy. After working with Smudge for 3 weeks, he was able to be adopted.
Flappy, a colony cat, that turned out to be not feral. We think Flappy was abused and after 6 months, let Brenda pet him. He has a severe ear issue and started losing balance. He is now at Brenda's receiving medical care and lots of love.
Buddy was Flappy's buddy. Once he saw Brenda petting Flappy, Buddy showed that he was not feral either. He was an absolute sweetheart and loved attention. We took him home, turned him over for adoption. He was adopted almost immediately.
Beasley was seen every morning on Brenda's feeding route. she would see him hanging around a dumpster. She started feeding him mornings and after 3 weeks was able to get him in a carrier. He was adopted with another senior cat.
Buster, yet another cat dumped at the feeding station. Only 2 years old and without a doubt one of the most friendly cats around. Buster is only 2, but he is an FIV+ kitty. He is with one of our adoption partners. He'll be adopted quickly!
