Meow! My name is Marigold
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby||Age:||Adult|
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Marigold and her sister, Cinderella, were rescued as babies. We've had them for years. Cinderella has lived a charmed life. Marigold, on the other hand has lived through hell. She was the pariah cat in our adoption center. She was always being attacked by the other kitties. We had to sneak food to her, bring a litter box to her and protect her while she used it. A few months ago, two former pariah cats were adopted from our office and Marigold got to move in. She has blossomed! She's had a personality transplant. She talks, flirts, head butts us. Someone recently walked up to her, picked her up and threw her over her shoulder. We all gasped, "Oh my God! I don't think you can do that!" But Marigold just purred away. She loves to watch the birds, lizards, and squirrels that we feed outside of her window. She loves her feather toy! And most surprisingly, she loves people! She would love to be your only pet.

Feline Friends should be your first choice in South Florida for quality cat adoptions. Visit our adoption center located on the border of Broward County and Palm Beach County in Deerfield Beach.
Feline Friends is a volunteer run, non-profit, 501c3 organization. Our purpose is to uphold and strengthen our portion of the "safety net." All of the cats in our adoption center are rescued. We strive to put an end to the needless killing of stray and feral cats in our area by facilitating sterilization, increasing education, and doing adoptions.
We assist the local feral cat population by educating the public about the trap-neuter-return solution advocated by Alley Cat Allies.
Finally, there are the adoptions. These are done seven days a week out of our adoption center. Our facility is everything a cat's home should be since, right now, we are their home. It is clean, tranquil, and fun. Adoptions are where we shine. We really know the individual personalities of each one of our kitties and can help you find your purrfect soul mate.
We are funded entirely by private donations and small grants. If you would like to help us continue our work, please remember us throughout the year with your 100% tax deductible donations. Also please include us in your trusts and bequests.
Call us to arrange for a visit. See what we are all about! Donatations of food, toys, bedding, carriers, and furniture are always welcome too!
Adoptions are done seven days a week out of our adoption center. Please call first since we are all just volunteers. You must be over the age of 25, and if you live in an apartment we need proof that you've paid your pet deposit.
All adopters are carefully screened, and there is a legal contract to be filled out. In most situations the adoption fee is $85 for adults and $125 for kittens. Each cat/kitten will have received at least one full set of vaccinations including boosters. They will have been wormed, treated for other parasites with either Advantage or Revolution, FIV/Leukemia tested, and been neutered.
100% of the adoption fee money is put right back into the daily operational expenses of running our adoption center. Thank you for your support!
We serve the South Florida area.
