My feral mommy hid my siblings and I under a big old pine tree. A kind lady spotted us there and made sure our mommy had plenty to eat and kept an eye on us. However, we couldn’t stay under that tree forever and that tree was on a business property on a very busy road. As we got big enough that we started crawling out from under the tree to explore, the lady caring for us was getting worried that we would wander into the road and get hit by a car. We were also getting big enough that we were starting to eat on our own. Operation Fancy Free didn’t have space for us in foster care, but agreed that we needed to be in a safer location. Our caregiver agreed to take us to her house and foster us so OFF came and trapped us for her. They tried to trap our mommy too, but she saw them taking us away from the tree and she ran off and they haven’t seen her again. We miss our mommy, but our foster momma has been taking good care of us and socializing us.
We are a group of volunteers who formed in August 2013 to address the issue of homeless felines in our county. As of April 2016, we have done TNR on 896 community cats. As a natural progression of our program, we also provide fostering and adoptions of domestic cats and kittens. All of our foster felines are in private homes, not a shelter environment. We can help arrange transport if needed.
Come Meet Our Pets...
By appointment only. Foster kitties are in multiple locations. All attempts will be made to get your possible adoptees in one location for a meet 'n greet as quickly as possible.
Our Adoption Process...
We offer adoptions based on donations comparable to the vetting that we have completed on the kitty. Spay or neuter is mandatory. If the kitty you choose has not yet been s/n, we require a $50 refundable deposit when you have completed the spay or neuter.
