caring for homeless and forgotten felines in our community

“Yesterday the twig was brown and bare; To-day the glint of green is there; Tomorrow will be leaflets spare; I know no thing so wondrous fair, No miracle so strangely rare. I wonder what next be there!” - L.H. Bailey

Friends of Felines is proud to introduce May, a young female who once lived inside with a family that, just as this past winter hit with frigid temperatures and piles of snow, left this pretty little girl outside where cats are unwelcome and feeding strays is not allowed.

The winter was a terrible experience for May, but when she gave birth to four kittens in the spring, she found the hostility of her human neighbors to be brutal. Taunted, stoned and drenched with water, May successfully hid her family until her growing kittens needed more nourishment. That’s when May got her first lucky break and met Pedro, who began sneaking food to the family, then asked FOF for help.

Thanks in part to the cooperation of Stamford Animal Care and Control, May and her kittens found safety, shelter and – when May was discovered to have a post partum infection – the emergency medical care she needed.

Most importantly, thanks to you - our friends and donors - we were able to say yes to helping May and her family and Pedro - able to say yes we can help and we will find May and her kittens the good and loving homes they deserve.

Ten years ago, this was exactly the vision we had and why Friends of Felines was founded. We thank you for supporting our mission of caring for homeless and forgotten felines and are grateful to be able to have done this for May, and many more cats than we ever thought were possible!

Friends of Felines is an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 organization. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation. Each and every one of us can continue to make a real difference in the lives of cats just like May and her kittens.

Your company may match your gift to us, so please don’t forget to ask!


Thank you for caring!

Elysa, Janine, May, and all your Friends of Felines
