Forgotten Felines of Culpeper

P.O. Box 342, Culpeper, VA, 22701

Rescue/Shelter Description

Forgotten Felines of Culpeper is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit rescue, taking in cats in Culpeper County and surrounding areas that have been abandoned or forgotten and providing a warm and loving foster home. Our mission is to make a difference in the lives of cats by providing proper veterinary care, socialization, and anything necessary to enable cats to find loving purrmanent homes. FFC takes in cats and pull from local high-kill VA shelters. We are uniquely the only rescue in Culpeper County who takes in and cares for "feral" or "community cats" with our Shrinking "Violets" Program. We rehabilitate/socialize community cats, many of which are merely frightened and need to learn to trust humans again. If placed in a shelter, euthanasia is imminent due to lack of space or time needed to socialize and being deemed not adoptable. We have had great success with this! We are an all volunteer group, with no one being paid. All proceeds go to our cats. Forgotten Felines of Culpeper...rescuing the abandoned and forgotten with no cat left behind.

Meet Everest and AnnaPurrna, two little torti sisters. They came to us with thier 2 siblings from Mountain Run Lake Road where they were found as strays, hence they are all named after famous mountains. Everest is a bit of a trickster and loves it! When she first came to us, she would love to escape her leveled crate and think it was funny that her foster mom would have to chase her all over the room, only to come back an hour later to find Everest sleeping on top of her crate, wanting to be returned to her crate.Everest can be aloof until you know her, but when she warms up, she enjoys being pet and loved on. AnnaPurrna came to join her siblings almost a month later and INSTANTLY began cuddling up to Everest. They are bonded and must be adopted together. They eat together, sleep together, play together -- and are ALWAYS together.AnnaPurrna is easy to love on once she gets to know you and is very much a people person. Everest and AnnaPurrna are/will be dewormed, spayed, received 2 FVRCP vaccines, a rabies vaccine, tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia, and is microchipped with a lifetime registration. No more paying $20+ every year to re-register, it's done for life! Their perfect home would be a quiet, low activity home with kids over the age of 12 years old or no kids at all. Interested?

 BFFs Fisher, Gar"Bonzo," & Watson - A Tale of 3 Friends​ Every week we get many requests for Fisher, an orange tabby that came to us with his 5 siblings last summer. Fisher and his family were dumped at the dump and ended up at a high kill shelter – a double whammy. Forgotten Felines pulled Fisher and his siblings and all were adopted, except Fisher. “So…if you are getting a lot of calls for Fisher, what’s the problem?” you ask. Well…​ Fisher has always been a bit of a loner and always sat apart from his siblings. He never wanted to play with them, he seemed to be a thinker type kinda guy, quiet. He never seemed to have any self esteem or real identity. Last summer we got in an entire family of orange cats that set up “house” in an office parking lot, right on the side of I-29 – remember? Gar”Bonzo” was the dad of that litter. Bonzo is a large orange tabby with white paws with an easy-going personality, though he didn’t come to us that way, he is TOTALLY a smooshie-guy now.​ Bonzo took an interest in Fisher and cleaned him, slept with him, and even played with toys with him. Keep in mind, Bonzo never even knew what a toy was…but he did this for Fisher. He seemed to know what Fisher needed and saw the emptiness in him…and filled it. Bonzo let Fisher know that he was okay and everything was okay. He mentored him in a way. This big ol’ cat from the streets took Fisher under his wing and became a big part of Fisher’s life. “Okay then, so adopt them together.” Last summer I received a call from the high kill shelter to pull some cats bc they would be euthanized. We took in the cats and when I asked if there were any more that needed out, the reply was, “We have one, but he will be put down bc he is feral.” I said I would take him. (Lots of times cats are not feral, just terrified from being in a big, loud, scary shelter, wondering what their fate will be.) I was told, “No, you don’t want him. He really is feral. We will put him down.” “No I want him.” I replied. Thinking, even a barn home is better than death.​ Watson came to us the following day, a day before he was slated for death. This big gray and white guy just stayed in his carrier in the crate and I barely saw him for the first month he was with us. He came out of his carrier at night to eat and that was about it. Sometimes when I would come into the room late at night, I would see him lounging on top of his carrier and he would quickly run inside again, escaping interaction with me. I never heard a growl or a hiss, ever. Hmmm…I thought, feral, huh?​ After Watson settled in, he was fully vetted and the door was opened on his crate. He could now come out and meet everyone he had been looking at for awhile, or stay in his crate if he chose. The decision was his. He came out and within a week or so, became best buds with Bonzo – after all, they had a lot in common. These are 2 guys that most would’ve given up on and dismissed as unfriendly cats, without taking the time to get to know them. Soon, Watson began cleaning and grooming little Fisher, too, eating with him, sleeping with him, and bonding with him.​ Now the world seemed to shine down on these three friends and all was happy and good, but they still need to complete their story. This is where you come in.​ These 3 friends are not traditional lap cats. Bonzo and Watson can be pet but do not like to be picked up – that’s okay. They often look out the French doors from the playroom and let me know when I am late to give them their canned food breakfast. They rub up against my legs when I come into the room. They can be pet and love affection. They are sweet cats who deserved to live. Once in a quiet home, they will most-likely bloom with a person they can trust.​ We are introducing these 3 guys, who have been through so much, to be part of a family. A family that is loving and understanding and patient and lets them adapt into their new home with love and patience. And so….I introduce to you….Gar”Bonzo” and Watson and Fisher. Three friends together. All fully vetted and microchipped, looking to add another chapter to their success story. (A deep discount will apply when adopting.) Please share with friends and family! GoodMews22@aol.com show less

Meet Henley & Harper! (Henley is the torti in foreground and Harper  is the torti in the back.) These little girls are 2 bonded sisters that need to be adopted together.  They were abandoned/dumped (with unopened cans of cat food!), with their brother, Court Gentry in a Good Samaritan's backyard.As of 9/19/20, they are approximately 6 weeks old, so we are taking application for preadoption only currently. Henley is outgoing and affectionate. She’s the first one to greet you when you walk into the room and will jump into your lap for snuggling.  She’d rather snuggle than play. Harper may be a little shy at first, but once she gets to know you, she too will beg for affection.  They’re both talkative and are sometimes demanding when it comes to attention they want.   These cuties like to climb people!  If you are not paying enough attention to them, they will climb up your leg or onto your shoulder so they can talk in your ear.  They currently talk all the time!  Their  ideal person/family will love these two because they are fiercely bonded to their human and willing to give them lots of love.They would be great as the only kittens/cats in the home, or they would get along great with others.  They haven’t been introduced to dogs or kids yet. Both kittens are/will be dewormed, spayed, have received 2 FVRCP vaccines, a rabies vaccine (if 4 mos. old at time of adoption). tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia, and are microchipped with a lifetime registration. No need to re-register and pay $20+ every year, it is done for life! Interested in knowing more about these cuties? Let us know! GoodMews22@aol.com show less

Meet Woody & Jessie, two bonded siblings with a sad past. They were found dumped in an empty dumpster behind a Culpeper pest control company as 6-7 week old kittens. (Thank goodness it was empty or there would have been poisons in there!) There was no way for them to have climbed inside, they were too little. There was no reason for them to go inside - there was nothing in it that would be tasty - it was completely empty. No wrries, They are safe. These two are adorable little white and brown tabbies, Woody is a bobtail, but not by birth - the vet believes there was some sort of blunt-force trauma a long before the dupster.  He is much larger than sister, Jessie, and tends to want to wrestle and rough-house, more than she does. :0) Jessie is a quiet little girl, happy to sit on th esidelines and watch, but will get involved with Woody's highjinx if she must/ They are both little lovebugs and enjoy being held and loved on, goodness knows, their past obviously did not have much cuddling and love. Both siblings are spayed/neutered, dewormed, received 2 FVRCP vaccines, a rabies vaccine if 4 month or older when adopted, are tested negatived for FIV and feline leukemia, and are microchipped with a lifetime registration - no need to pay $20+ to reregister every year, it's done for life!

Meet Loki and you will never forget him or his story ~ EVER. Loki is a sweet little, all black kitten, approximately 8 weeks old. He loves to zoom around and play with his toys, and if he can't find any toys, he'll play with anything else he can get his little paws on. He's a brave little guy -- not even the vaccuum scares him! And once he's worn himself out playing, he loves to curl up on top of his favorite human, make some biscuits, and fall asleep purring. Loki is ready for a good life of plentiful toys, food, and snuggles because he has had a rough start to life.He is the sole survivor of 2 litters of kittens, 10 kittens in all (along with some 13+ adults cats)  that were abandoned by their "owners" when they moved away, and left them outside to fend for themselves. In short, a neighbor thought something was odd when all of the sudden a lot of cats began coming to her home crying for food. They all came from the same direction, so she investigated. What she found was beyond horrible. We took into care 4 kittens with varying degrees of starvation and injuries, and only Loki survived . He was small for his age, but healthy. This cutie pie has been spoiled rotten in our care and is now looking for his forever home.He gets along great with other cats but would need a playmate who could match his energy. He could also be a great companion cat for a person or a family who has a lot of time to spend with him.  Loki is/will be dewormed, neutered, has had 2 FVRCP vaccines, a rabies vaccine (if 4 months or older when adopted), tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia, and is microchipped with a lifetime registration. No need to pay $20+ every uear to re-new registration, it's done for life! Interested in this sweet little guy? Email us at GoodMews22@aol.com for an application. show less

About a month or so ago, we received a call about 6 kittens (about 6 weeks old) under a shipping container in a Bealeton apartment complex. After a few visits, we were able to rescue 3 babies. There were originally 6 kittens. We believe It is very important for us to keep families together - it helps with stress levels and kittens' health if they come down with a debilitating disease, such as panleuk or calicivirus, then we can treat all of the babies. However, this was an example of too many cooks in the kitchen. The Good Samaritan gave one kitten to her dad, and we are assuming that 2 kittens were rescued by another rescue; however we continued to search for the kittens for weeks bc we were not certain of this. Our three kittens, SnickerDoodle, Sprinkle, and Shortbread are now ready to go home for the holidays. Check out how adorable these babies are! SnickerDoodle and Sprinkle (the 2 tabbies) are bonded and are always together. You can see that, even on the photo where they are under the container, they are right beside each other. Although, the 3 are very close, and in a purrfect world, we would LOVE for them to all stay together, we know this is most likely not possible. Everyone has had their distemper vaccines and are dewormed. All will be s/n, receive a rabies vaccine (if 4 months or older when adopted), will be combo tested, and microchipped. Let us know if you are interested. They won't last long. GoodMews22@aol.com 540. 717.4420 show less

Meet Tatiana! Tatiana is a beautiful brown and white tabbico kitten with soulful eyes and a sweet disposition. She is very affectionate, loves people and other cats. She was rescued with her three siblings last summer when they were set on a counter as wee kittens to be given away for free at a local gas station - even though they were too young to be without their mama cat and had bad colds.These babies have recovered awhile ago and are ready for their forever home(s). We cannot believe that Tatiana, queen of the fairies has not been adopted yet! She and her brother Oberon are still waiting for their forever home and hoping that their yet-to-be mommy or daddy find them. Tatiana's purrfect home would be with her brother, Oberon, or another kitten to play with. She might be alright as an only cat if she had someone at home with her most of the time. Tatiana is/will be dewormed, spayed, received 2 FVRCP vaccines, a rabies vaccine (if 4 months old at time of adoption), tested for FIV and feline leukemia, and is microchipped with a lifetime registration. No more paying over $20 every year to reregister - it's done for life! Need a little magic fairy dust in **your** life?I s she the kitten your family has been waiting for?

He loves to sneak into bed with you and get so confortable - lying on his back, all stretched out...when you realize he is there, he acts as though he doesn't know how he got there. (What happened??) Tiggy has a playful, loving, and comical personality once he warms up to you, He is very silly and loves to tap your hand or foot then sit and watch. He loves to wrestle and race with Timmy. He is extremely bonded with identical brother, Timmy Tiptoes, and will need to be adopted with him. There is discount for adopting both. Both cats are neutered, received 3 FVRCP vaccines, a rabies vaccine, tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia, and microchipped with lifetime registrations.

Meet Tux! Tux is a handsome black and white tuxedo cat, about 4 years old. We believe he was left behind when someone moved. No one reported him missing. Tux had been eating for months off of my porch and, during the cold winter months, he slept in the heated cat houses.This sweet boy was very mannerly, often waiting politely at the fence line while people were in the driveway or on the porch. When everyone left, Tux would proceed to the porch to get his meal. He certainly was (and is!) a charmer. Sweet and polite as he was, Tux was also elusive. One day, two people in the neighborhood described a black and white cat that was limping and hurt. Tux was trapped and brought into care immediately. He had been attacked and had a large hole in his cheek. At the vet, the staff remarked how loving and sweet he is and how everyone fell in love with him. Tux is all better now and is ready for his forever home. He has a very easy-going personality and gets along great with other cats. He will politely walks away if someone even so much as hisses at him. (Cats can be so....catty!) Tux enjoys being pet and will often sit next to you while watching tv. He would make a great companion cat. He enjoys his canned food and loves to look out  nice, big sunny windows. He really wants to be loved and be part of a family and would prefer a family that is quiet and low activity with kids over 12. This guy just enjoys life and being loved. NO DOGS. Tux does not seem to get along with male cats, except for his bonded friend, Patchie. Patchie has alaso had a rough time of it. He was found wandering in the woods with the worst case of mange our vet has ever seen. He is an absolute lovebug and all better now and he and Tux are like velcro walking together, side by side. Tux is neutered, had his rabies and FVRCP vaccines, tested negative for feline leukemia, and is microchipped with a lifetime registration. You won't need to pay every year to re-register him - it's done. Tux is ready to go home now. Let us know if you would like to meet this charming tuxedo. GoodMews22@aol.com show less

BFFs Fisher, Gar"Bonzo," & Watson - A Tale of 3 Friends​ Every week we get many requests for Fisher, an orange tabby that came to us with his 5 siblings last summer. Fisher and his family were dumped at the dump and ended up at a high kill shelter – a double whammy. Forgotten Felines pulled Fisher and his siblings and all were adopted, except Fisher. “So…if you are getting a lot of calls for Fisher, what’s the problem?” you ask.

He never seemed to have any self esteem or real identity. Last summer we got in an entire family of orange cats that set up “house” in an office parking lot, right on the side of I-29 – remember? Gar”Bonzo” was the dad of that litter. Bonzo is a large orange tabby with white paws with an easy-going personality, though he didn’t come to us that way, he is TOTALLY a smooshie-guy now.​ Bonzo took an interest in Fisher and cleaned him, slept with him, and even played with toys with him. Keep in mind, Bonzo never even knew what a toy was…but he did this for Fisher. He seemed to know what Fisher needed and saw the emptiness in him…and filled it. Bonzo let Fisher know that he was okay and everything was okay. He mentored him in a way. This big ol’ cat from the streets took Fisher under his wing and became a big part of Fisher’s life. “Okay then, so adopt them together.” Last summer I received a call from the high kill shelter to pull some cats bc they would be euthanized. We took in the cats and when I asked if there were any more that needed out, the reply was, “We have one, but he will be put down bc he is feral.” I said I would take him. (Lots of times cats are not feral, just terrified from being in a big, loud, scary shelter, wondering what their fate will be.) I was told, “No, you don’t want him. He really is feral. We will put him down.” “No I want him.” I replied. Thinking, even a barn home is better than death.​ Watson came to us the following day, a day before he was slated for death. This big gray and white guy just stayed in his carrier in the crate and I barely saw him for the first month he was with us. He came out of his carrier at night to eat and that was about it. Sometimes when I would come into the room late at night, I would see him lounging on top of his carrier and he would quickly run inside again, escaping interaction with me. I never heard a growl or a hiss, ever. Hmmm…I thought, feral, huh?​ After Watson settled in, he was fully vetted and the door was opened on his crate. He could now come out and meet everyone he had been looking at for awhile, or stay in his crate if he chose. The decision was his. He came out and within a week or so, became best buds with Bonzo – after all, they had a lot in common. These are 2 guys that most would’ve given up on and dismissed as unfriendly cats, without taking the time to get to know them. Soon, Watson began cleaning and grooming little Fisher, too, eating with him, sleeping with him, and bonding with him.​ Now the world seemed to shine down on these three friends and all was happy and good, but they still need to complete their story. This is where you come in.​ These 3 friends are not traditional lap cats. Bonzo and Watson can be pet but do not like to be picked up – that’s okay. They often look out the French doors from the playroom and let me know when I am late to give them their canned food breakfast. They rub up against my legs when I come into the room. They can be pet and love affection. They are sweet cats who deserved to live. Once in a quiet home, they will most-likely bloom with a person they can trust.​ We are introducing these 3 guys, who have been through so much, to be part of a family. A family that is loving and understanding and patient and lets them adapt into their new home with love and patience. And so….I introduce to you….Gar”Bonzo” and Watson and Fisher. Three friends together. All fully vetted and microchipped, looking to add another chapter to their success story. (A deep discount will apply when adopting.)

American Bobtail

Meet Woody & Jessie, two bonded siblings with a sad past. They were found dumped in an empty dumpster behind a Culpeper pest control company as 6-7 week old kittens. (Thank goodness it was empty or there would have been poisons in there!) There was no way for them to have climbed inside, they were too little. There was no reason for them to go inside - there was nothing in it that would be tasty - it was completely empty. No wrries, They are safe. These two are adorable little white and brown tabbies, Woody is a bobtail, but not by birth - the vet believes there was some sort of blunt-force trauma a long before the dupster.  He is much larger than sister, Jessie, and tends to want to wrestle and rough-house, more than she does. :0) Jessie is a quiet little girl, happy to sit on th esidelines and watch, but will get involved with Woody's highjinx if she must/ They are both little lovebugs and enjoy being held and loved on, goodness knows, their past obviously did not have much cuddling and love. Both siblings are spayed/neutered, dewormed, received 2 FVRCP vaccines, a rabies vaccine if 4 month or older when adopted, are tested negatived for FIV and feline leukemia, and are microchipped with a lifetime registration - no need to pay $20+ to reregister every year, it's done for life! Interested in these cuties? Please email us at GoodMews22@aol.com. They will be ready for adoption on 9/25/22. show less
