My story

Look no further: here is the coolest cat around... This big guy has a story to tell!

“Brutus” was trapped at a feral cat colony a year or so ago. At first, he was not a social cat, and normally we would have returned him to the colony once neutered and vaccinated. However, his foster caretaker felt that the colony location had become unsafe, and was reluctant to return him. We resigned ourselves that Brutus would likely live out his life as a feral cat on our screened porch. While he would receive food and shelter, he would probably never get a real home and become a beloved pet. It is always sad when this best of outcomes is out of reach.

Brutus settled in and over time, we made it a point to spend time near him and ply him with cat treats. He became increasingly comfortable with our presence. One day, Brutus decided that this hand offering treats was really quite friendly and allowed himself to be petted. A whole new world opened up that day! After that, there was no stopping him. He very quickly progressed to asking for pets every day, all the time, even getting a little bit obnoxious! When I stoop to clean the litter box, he’s usually right there nuzzling at my side. He’s even ok with being picked up now. One of the most amazing transformations we have ever seen! You would never guess he had been a feral cat, except that he bears the scars and tattered ears of street life.

Now, there is only one thing missing! Brutus is ready to find his happily ever after in a forever home. He gets along great with other cats, yet seems more keenly interested in human company these days, so he’d be a fine option as a single cat or as a companion for other cats. A home with prior cat experience would be ideal. Because he can still be easily startled, he would probably do best in a household without small children.

Brutus is about 5 years old and has been neutered, vaccinated, and tested FIV/FELV negative. He does a wonderful job using the litterbox! He has also had a dental cleaning recently and a few teeth extracted that had been damaged during his rough-and-tumble days. There is an adoption donation to the Feral Cat Foundation (an all-volunteer organization, which helped get him out of a bad situation and provided all of his medical care) to help us continue our work with homeless cats.

Please note that due to the public health situation, in-store adoption events are temporarily suspended, but please reach out by phone or email if interested! We can set up a visit, or Zoom or Facetime to start out if that works best for you.

More about this rescue

The Feral Cat Foundation (FCF) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization whose primary mission is to help people live with the feral and forgotten cats and kittens in the communities of Alameda and Contra Costa counties of northern California. We accomplish this through the nationally-recognized and effective method of "TNR" (trap-neuter-return). When possible, tame cats and kittens are adopted to loving homes. Cats that cannot be socialized are returned to the location where they were trapped and fed daily by caring volunteers. The lack of resources and a sanctuary prevent FCF from being able to take owner surrenders, rescue cats from shelters, or remove cats from neighborhoods.
