Facts about Chitlin

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 11432742
  • Hair: Short

CHITLIN and CHICKLET were originally found as stray kittens under their caregiver’s trailer while living in Florida. Chitlin had some string or cord or wire wrapped around one rear leg and the rear part of her body that required the amputation of a rear leg while she was quite young. Fortunately, the part wrapped around her body was not as tight and  so caused no permanent injury there. Being so young she adapted very, very well to a missing limb as she has now been without it longer than she ever had it.

Their caregiver recently became ill and came to live with his brother in Huntsville. The brother already had a feline companion but recently lost him to jaw cancer and is still grieving for him. Then the caregiver to these tortie sisters passed away as well and now the brother is grieving not only for his cat but his brother as well. He just felt he really was not attached to these girls and didn’t feel he could do them justice emotionally since I’m sure they are grieving their caregiver as well. Chitlin was her daddy’s special girl because of her leg so I’m sure she especially misses him.  But she is adjusting to the love of new people!  They have had a lot of changes in the last year or so.

They are initially going to be shy and nervous around new people & surroundings. They are not used to dogs and they do not like other cats, mostly because they aren’t used to them. Could they adjust to another companion? Probably with time and careful introduction. They have impeccable litter box habits. Foster Mom uses a high sided box with a low entrance so Chitlin can get in and out easily. They are a bonded pair and need to stay together.

About Forgotten Felines

About Our Rescue Group...

Forgotten Felines, Inc. is a 501-(3)(c) non-profit charitable organization. Our primary purpose is to manage the feral cat population in our area by trapping, neutering/spaying and re-releasing (TNR) cats back into their original territories. We also work to provide safe temporary homes for cats that are homeless, unwanted, abandoned or lost. Some of our animals have been rescued from dangerous conditions and cannot be released back to their original territory...these animals are housed in foster homes until permanent loving homes can be found. The majority of these animals are friendly abandoned pets, that are not feral, and we offer these loving and grateful animals for adoption here on Petfinder and also at Petsmart in Jones Valley, Huntsville, AL. We also provide help to people who are elderly, disable, financially challenged and those who love their animals but cannot provide them with the necessary care.

Our Mission...

(1) Control feral cat populations through neutering/spaying
(2) Educate the public about about proper pet care and responsibility, especially neutering/spaying and advising about pet behavior and medical issues that often result in families giving up their pets
(3) Humanely remove and relocate ferals when possible
(4) Adopt out loving, grateful animals into permanent forever homes
(5) Raise necessary funds to build a shelter for rescued cats
