Forgotten Felines of Culpeper

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

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.

Da-da-da-dahhhhh! Introducing Willa & Arnold! Willa and Arnold were two of four kittens found underneath a house in the Culpeper countryside. A new owner moved into the home and found the kittens were crawling out of their nest from under the home. Mamacat never came back for them, so we stepped in. Annette and Oliver bottle fed and cared for them until they were old enough to eat on their own. They got their names from the snuffling "piggy noises" they made when eating. Unfortunately, everyone in the litter came down with panleuk/distemper and two kittens passed away. Willa and Arnold fought hard to stay here - they are survivors! Willa and Arnold are about 3 1/2 months old now and are healthy and eating up a storm and playful! We think they would do best in a medium to high energy home, depending on the situation, possibly other cats and possibly dogs. Please meet them... Willa: Hi, I'm Willa! I was originally called Wilbur but then they figured out I was a girl (oops!) so now I am Willa! I am playful, sweet and like to snuggle. I am explorer and LOVE to climb our scratching post, the cat tree and anything that get me up in the air! I love to play with my brother and anyone else around. My brother and I have been through a lot together and are bonded, so we need to be adopted together, but then you get TWICE the love and cuteness! Arnold: Hello there, I'm Arnold and I DON'T KNOW why they call me a piggy because I am very clearly a miniature panther! I am a little shy at first, but once I get to know you and get used to my surroundings, I get comfortable and love to play, chase my sister and play with toys. I also like to snuggle and my foster mom says I have a very loud motor. My back legs walk a little funny because of that distemper, but I am getting stronger and it does not stop me! Don't tell Willa but I really depend on her to be my "wingman" (Wingkitten?) so we need to be adopted together. Both kittens will be fully vetted - dewormed, spayed/neutered, will have received 2-3 FVRCP vaccines, and a rabies vaccine (if 4 months or older when adopted), tested negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV, and microchipped with a lifetime registration. Interested in 2 little piggies going wee-wee-wee-wee all the way to **your** home? Let is know! GoodMews22@aol.com show less

Meet Fisher! Fisher s a dark orange colored tabby, just 4 1/2 months old. He and his siblings, Dune, Cricket, JuneBug, and Tadpole were literally dumped at the county dump as though they were trash. Thank goodness someone found them. Unfortunately, they brought them to a high-kill shelter that was over-capacity and they were immediately slated for death. Forgotten Felines of Culpeper jumped in to save them and they came to us on the Freedom Ride on July 8th. These poor babies were thin and sickly but are all better now. Every single kitten in the litter is a purr machine, loving, playful, and sweet. Fisher is no exception. His purrfect home would be just about any home, he would need to be adopted with a sibling or another kitten, and he must be an indoor only cat. Fisher can sometimes be a bit of a loner. He is the first one to escape the room, but instantly regrets his decision and tries to get back into the room with his siblings, often crying to be with them. However, he will elude capture til the last possible minute before allowing you to get him and place him back with his siblings. He is a character, but he has a strong family bond with them, probably because of all they have been through together. Fisher is neutered, had 2 distemper vaccines, a rabies vaccine, tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia, and is microchipped with a lifetime registration - you won't need to pay every year to re-register her.

Meet Grasshopper! Grasshopper (female) and her siblings were found in a hollowed tree - just like the Keebler elves - as tiny kittens. Their mom, Keebler hid them there to keep them safe.All are named with the Kebbler treats in mind. :0) At this posting (6/3/21) they are approx. 7 - 8 weeks old. Grasshopper is a little black and white tuxedo, with with one eye area black and the other all white. She is the most friendly, silly, energetic, and playful of the litter. She is always getting into something fun. She loves to play with her siblings - romping and climbing and always surprising them from either above or behind by tackling them and wrestling with them. She is easy going and outgoing and enjoys life to the fullest. Her perfect home would be almost any home, cat-friendly kids over 5 years old and she MUST be adopted with a sibling.  This litter is dewormed, spayed/neutered, has had 2-3 FVRCP vaccines, a rabies vaccine (if 4 months or older at adoption), mom will be tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia, and all are microchipped with a lifetime registration. All are ready to be preadopted now. Please go to: https://www.forgottenfelinesculpeper.org/preadopt for more information on preadoption and an application. Have more questions?

Meet Soprano and you won't ever forget him. This beautiful boy is a lovebug who will win your heart! Soprano is a Russian Blue mix (hypoallergenic!) adult male about 2 years old with an ear tip. (Ear tipping was done before he came to us and is done by some rescues or spay/neuter clinics to let others know that a cat has been neutered and has had vaccines.) Soprano was found as a stray by a Good Samaritan who fed stray cats. The Good Samaritan had Soprano vetted and released him outside. Sometime later, poor Soprano had a wound/abscess and, again, the Good Samaritan came to the rescue and cared for the wound until healed. Soprano was enamored and was not going to give up finding his forever home! He somehow snuck into the house one night and snuck into bed where a member of the family was sleeping with her pet dog. Back outside Soprano went. (The Good Samaritan had dogs that would not get along with Soprano.) Soprano came to us on June 11th in the hopes that he would finally find his forever home. This sweet boy is very shy at first, but within a few days warms up. He loves affection and will nuzzle up to you for it. He is a love bug for sure and will make a FABULOUS companion/support cat. This boy wants so badly to have that one on one relationship with someone. Soprano is neutered, dewormed, has received an FVRCP vaccine, a rabies vaccine, and was tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia, and is microchipped with a lifetime registration. (You won't need to pay every year to reregister!) Want to sing a few happy notes? Interested in Soprano? Let us know! GoodMews22@aol.com show less

Velvet is a beautiful, silky black, female cat approximately about 6 years old. She came to us from a high-kill NC shelter, just hours before she and her kitten were to be euthanized. Velvet is just sweet as can be and has had a difficult time of it. She loves to be held and cuddled. She is a very tender, emotional soul, who tends to care and groom the other cats. She is a sweetheart!   Velvet was adopted out last year to an adopter who lived by themself. After awhile we were contacted by the adopter who said she wanted to return Velvet because she could no longer care for her. She told us that Velvet had stomach issues and had an abscessed tooth some time ago that she was unable to take care of. We immediately picked up Velvet and took her right to the vet, fearing she was in pain. While Velvet had left with all her teeth, she now only had 4 teeth left! In her foster home, once Velvet began eating,  we never saw an issue with her tummy - maybe just a nervous tummy at her former home. While Velvet started out in a quiet home, the adopter had others move in with children and other pets. Maybe a tad too much for poor Velvet. Fast forward to today, months later. Velvet has not needed to return to the vet again - all mouth issues are fine. She has a healthy mouth and she is healthy! She gets along great with other cats and would prefer a quiet, low key home where she will be loved for the sweetheart that she is. She would be a great companion cat for someone who needs a friend during these difficult times.She eats dry food and canned food, just like evey other cat. Velvet is spayed, up to date on rabies and distemper vaccines, and combo tested negative for both feline leukemia and FIV. She would do best in a quiet/low activity home, with cat-friendly children over the age of  12 years old. If you are interested in meeting Velvet or would like additional information on this precious girl, please email GoodMews22@aol.com. show less
