Check out Bongo's latest publicity photos above! Miss Bongo is about 10 months old and is affectionate and spunky. We have been caring for her for about 5 months since she and her litter were abandoned by neighbors. We already have 2 cats and need to find a home for Bongo. She gets along well with other cats. She loves playing with her felt mice and soccer with a whiffle golfball. She gets the zoomies, very entertaining! I know she would be a great addition to your family!

We already have two cats and cannot keep her, she would make a wonderful addition to your family!

Story
Penelope is 7 years old, we found her and her brother as kittens abandoned by their mom. We handraised them both and love them dearly. She is a very loving cat that loves to cuddle and has never scratched or bitten us. Although we hate to part with her, we recently moved to an area with feral cats and had a baby, which has been too much for Penelope. She is stressed out and acting out by going outside of her litterbox. We have tried to the best of our abilities to help her including going to the vet but it has been a year and we have reached our limits. As much as it breaks our hearts to have to give her up we have to put our child's health first. We are hoping to find another loving family who can provide a stable and calm environment for her to thrive.

Story
Dusty is a super sweet senior girl who loves affection and scritches. She is also fairly mellow and prefers to hang out on her cat tree and watch the world go by (especially while soaking in the sun at the window). She is not super playful, and loud noises or fast movements tend to cause her to hide. She would prefer a quiet home, perhaps with another mellow kitty. She requires a prescription diet for urinary health (currently on Hills C/D Multicare Stress dry food and various urinary care wet foods) to prevent her from getting inflammation of the bladder which can cause further urinary issues. She does well on the special diet and has been cleared by a vet for adoption. Her breed and color best fits an American Shorthair Smoke (her fur is black with gray and white undertones), but we don't really know for sure. Dusty is good company, likes to stay close by. She’s well behaved, uses scratching post and does not scratch furniture. Faithfully uses liter box, no accidents. Not a picky eater, likes her dry food and wet food too. She entertains herself by fetching a fuzzy ball “her prey”. She like to sit next to her people, but is not a lap cat. Likes being petted and scratched on the chin. She sleeps in her own room, and does occasionally snore, but will cuddle in bed. She’s a sweetie. Cats adopted through FUR will be vaccinated, spayed or neutered, tested for Felv/FIV and they are microchipped prior to adoption. Typical Adult cat adoption donations are $150, cash or cards accepted, sorry no checks. Southern California residents only, we do not adopt to residents not within driving distance of our adoption centers. Please visit our website, www.felineundergroundrescue.com to submit an application.

Story
Minnie and her brother Sonny are a sweet, friendly, gentle pair of kitties! They are very easy going and affectionate, especially Sonny. They are OK with other friendly cats, but would be just as happy as the only felines in the house. They haven't been around kids but would probably be OK with gentle, well mannered children. They are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. Minnie and Sonny will be available for adoption this Saturday (12/16) at Kahoots in Temecula from 10am to 2pm.

Story
Mama cat aka DeMommy is a sweet, quiet, "chunky monkey". She is a bit shy at first but warms up once she gets to know you. She loves pets on the head and scritches right above her tail. She is okay with other mellow cats and would probably do best in a relaxed household. If you are interested in this darling girl please contact fosterhueysrescue@gmail.com
