Tiger Bell is an absolute sweetheart of a kitty who *loves* attention and adores being petted.  She will curl up next to you and ask for the pets and to be by your side as you're doing things.  It's obvious that in her previous cat-life, she was a pampered Queen of the House, and your home (and you!) will be her domain.   

She is a very well behaved kitty, doesn’t chew on things, uses the litterbox fine, and is a pretty polite cat as far as furniture and objects go.  She does love having a box up by the windowsill so she can look out and see the world go by.  She is spayed and her shots are all up to date.  We believe she is about 5 years old, and in very good health.   

Tiger would like to be an only cat - we believe she was one previously, and she wants you all to herself.  Was not raised to share her toys (and why should she, when she's obviously the Queen? ^^). 

Want to do a Foster-to-Adopt?  We have a special program for some of our cats where if you'd like to evaluate how they get along with your home, you would sign up initially to foster Tiger Bell for a period of time (usually 3-6 months) and bring her into your household and see how you and she get along.  If all works out, when the trial period is over, you can adopt her as an official house member.  If, for any reason, it doesn't work out before then, she'll come back to FFN. 

Tiger Bell can be seen regularly at the Feline Friends Network monthly adoption fairs at Pet Food Express in Mountain View (first Saturday of each month - see our website for more details).

About Feline Friends Network

About Our Rescue Group...

In 1989, Stanford University had a problem with roaming cats all over the campus. Too many students think kittens are cute and adopt, but realize at the end of the year, mom won't let them bring them home, so they let them go (there is a no pets policy in campus housing). The university decided to exterminate these feral cats. But a group of people who had been trying to care for some of these cats got together to take care of this issue by trapping them all, getting the metered, taking many in that were tame enough to be pets, and attracting others to special feeding stations on the campus that are watched and fed and watered daily by volunteers. Through adoptions and attrition over the years, the number of regular ferals we have on the campus now is at about 15. We continue to find new cats as people dump them, but we also have a policy of adopters returning the cats to us if they must surrender them instead of taking them to a shelter where they would most likely be killed. We also find many lost cats and reunite them with their owners.
We always need volunteers to do the feeding, fostering, and some administration work like making flyers for our adoptable cats and posting them and putting them on various websites. We do a once a year holiday letter with information about what is happening along with a donation appeal. We need donations to purchase good food for our ferals, get our cats neutered and make sure they are healthy. Vets are quite expensive, even with our shelter discount. We have no real administrative overhead except for stamps and paper.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our Adoption Process...

We have applicants fill out the application--usually online. Someone calls to talk wit the applicant to find out more about their needs and desires. If we find all in order on the phone, we invite the person to visit the cat in the foster home. If it seems the 2 are a good match, we visit the potential new home to be sure all looks according to what was said and that they are ready for the cat. We then deliver the cat to the home. They must be willing to keep the cat inside and have a safe place for the cat to retreat to if he needs it. Plus secure screens. Of course, agree to keep the cat healthy with yearly exams, immunizations, good food and fresh water, fresh litter, etc.
