ally and mac.jpg

Ally's a four-month-old kitten born in North Stamford in a restaurant parking lot. This extraordinarily beautiful and fluffy black kitten turned out to be immediately friendly with an unfortunate heart murmur severe enough to shorten her life. But High Ridge Animal Hospital fostered Ally, walked us through Ally's heart disease and gave Ally her chance to be a kitten for as long as she could.

And Mac, a crabby older cat who doesn't like anyone, fell in love with Ally and if she wants to climb all over him, that's OK with Mac and with us, too!

Thank you Mac, and High Ridge Animal Hospital.

Friends of Felines' "Circle of Compassion" is the new name of our special donation program dedicated to support those homeless cats who need just a bit more than the usual routine medical care for treatable injuries or illness.

Circle of Compassion cats are loving and deserving, but need extra medical care in order to have happy and healthy lives. With this care, we hope that these cats will eventually be ready for a second chance at a good life with a loving family.

Please consider donating to our "Circle of Compassion" to help us treat those cats with the extra or specialized care they need. Friends of Felines is a registered non-profit organization so all donations are tax-deductible. Click here for donation information.

Cats who have been supported by our Circle of Compassion Fund in the past include Buster, who had intestinal surgery at Cornell University and is now a happy and much loved member of a real family. And Vivian, who wandered into a leg hold trap and is now a comfortable member of her own family thanks to Animal Specialty Center and her FOF foster home.
