Hi - My name is Mittens and I am a very shy 15 mos old sweetheart! I was born outside and not use to being indoors or with people but I am slowly learning how nice people can be and that being safe and sound indoors is a good thing!!

I am looking for that special someone who is willing to give me some more time to come out of my shell and understands that sometimes it takes some of us a little bit longer to let our inner snuggling, love bug self out.

I am a sweet girl who is still learning the ins and outs of being an indoor cat but I already am enjoying playing with toys - ping pong balls are my personal favorite! and I purr up a storm when I do let you pet me!

I love to sit in a window and watch the birds - or chipmunks! - and I get along fine with other cats but wouldn't mind being your only girl either!

If you think you have room in your heart for a very shy girl who has a lot of love to give, let my foster mom know and come and visit! Contact my foster mom at

About Friends of Feral Felines

About Our Rescue Group...

We are the Friends of Feral Felines, an all-volunteer network of individuals working to address the needs of feral, abandoned, and stray cats living in Southern Maine's streets, barns, and woods.

Founded in 1993, we believe that all cats have inherent value and worth. therefore, our mission is to relieve the problems placed on feral cats through population and abandonment.

First, we assess a colony to determine whether it is located in a safe environment. If it is deemed safe, our volunteers manage the colony through daily feedings, and by neutering and tending to health care needs of the colony members. Colonies exist all over southern Maine.
We, trap, neuter, and return (TNR). This method a feral cat is first trapped, then provided medical care, including neutering, and finally returned to its home colony. Over time, TNR reduces the colony size.

Come Meet Our Pets...

FoFF does not have a shelter facility. All adoptable cats are in foster care at our volunteers' homes. You are welcome to meet them by contacting us and scheduling a visit.

Our Adoption Process...

Our volunteer foster caregivers take care of kittens trapped from feral colonies. When the kittens are socialized, spayed/neutered, dewormed, and vaccinated, we post them for adoption and ask for a donation of $85 for kittens up to four months old; $70 for cats over four months old, to defray our costs for the cats/kittens' medical care.
