DSH Brown Tabby & White Neutered Male Adult
Lenny arrived at the Forgotten Felines office in quite a state. His face was a mess and he had obviously been in the wars, so to speak. Initially, he was named Lennox (after the boxer, Lennox Lewis) because he looked like he had been in the ring with Mike Tyson! We all fell in love with this big bruised-up tomcat immediately. Despite his ordeals living the rough life outdoors, Lenny was so loving and welcoming of affection, it was crystal clear that he would enter the Forgotten Felines adoption program.
Lenny tested positive for FIV which wasn’t surprising to us at all, given his life on the streets un-neutered, getting into kitty troubles. So he is looking for an indoor only home where he can relax and chill out and be taken care of, in his early retirement. He is only three years old after all! But yeah, he is soooo done with running the streets!
Lenny has so much to share and with a kind and loving owner to take care for him and keep his health in check, Lenny is looking forward to blossoming in a home of his own. He also has a ‘job’ – didn’t you know? Lenny is known as ‘Uncle Lenny’, the Counselor-in-Chief of all the kittens at the Forgotten Felines Adoption Suite! They just LOVE him!! Kittens of all shapes, sizes and personalities come to Uncle Lenny for a snuggle or a little wash-and-groom or a little play. Lenny is just so patient and sweet with them. It’s not unknown for a kitten or two to climb on Lenny while he is taking a nap. Uncle Lenny, the Gentle Giant!
While we and the kittens will miss Lenny’s company enormously, it is time for Lenny to take a break and find his own forever home, where he can be tended to for a change! Lenny loves his food and his naps and his food (did I mention that?) He would like a nice quiet home with loving owners and although he is a fairly independent dude, it would be nice for Lenny to have regular company for at least part of the day. In return he will be an amazing companion, a great character and a bit of a guard-cat. Lenny has many talents and he is looking to amaze you every day!!

*What is FIV?
Feline Immunodeficiency Virus
FIV is a virus that affects a cat’s immune system over a period of years.
FIV is a cat-only disease and cannot be spread to humans or other animals.
FIV-positive cats may live long, healthy, normal lives with little or no symptoms.
FIV is not easily passed between cats. It cannot be spread casually, as in sharing litter boxes, food and water bowls, a scratch with a claw, or when snuggling or playing. It is rarely spread from a mother to her kittens.
The FIV virus can only be spread through blood transfusions, badly infected gums, or serious penetrating bite wounds (saliva to blood). Bite wounds of this kind are rare, except in free-roaming, unneutered tomcats.
FIV-positive cats should be kept as healthy as possible. Keeping them indoors-only (if possible – not imperative) and free from stress goes a long way to help keep a cat symptom-free. Feed a high-quality diet, and treat any secondary problems as soon as they appear.
The presence of the FIV virus should NOT be an adoption deterrent. However, extra thought should be given to the cat’s potential feline companions.
Forgotten Felines is a non-profit, registered 501(c)3 organization serving Sonoma County since 1990. Our primary function is to provide low-cost spay/neuter clinics to assist the public with the management of feral or wild cats in Sonoma County. We offer instruction and equipment loans (subject to availability) to help people with the goal of reducing the feral cat population by a Trap-Neuter-Release program. Tame adults we find living in feral cat groups, as well as formerly feral kittens who have been tamed down by our volunteer foster parents, are put through our adoption program. We are always actively seeking volunteers to assist with fostering, trapping, and helping at our thrift store, Pick of the Litter.
Our adoptable cats are available in the Forgotten Felines cat room inside the Rohnert Park Animal Shelter at 301 J. Rogers Lane in Rohnert Park. Our adoption room phone number is (707) 584-4998. Hours are 1:00-6:30pm Wednesday, 1:00-5:30pm Thursday-Saturday, 1:00-4:30 Sunday, closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
Our potential adopters fill out an adoption application and an adoption contract. They also must fill out their personal information for sending off the cat's microchip registration. Our basic adoption fee is $85.00. An adoption counselor carefully guides the adopter through the process, making sure the adopting party is a good match for each kitty. We provide a health record document to the adopter with all health history information including spay/neuter date, combo test results, vaccination history, and any additional medications and treatments received by the cat.
