  • Domestic Short Hair-white
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Epicurious and Aristotle (Epi and Ari) are five year old brothers that have mighty big names for such gentle, serene souls. Epi is quite outgoing and will be there to greet you at the door when you come home. Sweet Ari hangs back more, but when bonded to you, loves attention and patting. Their lot was not a lucky one when their previous owners had to pursue a new place to live, that, unfortunately, would not allow pets. We understand that lives change in unpredictable ways, but to allow another trauma for these gorgeous boys would be unforgivable. They need their forever home together as they are such a bonded pair. They are also looking for a quiet, stress free home that matches their personalities. If your home qualifies, we highly recommend these handsome 5 year old gents. Ari and Epi are fully house trained, neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and loving! If you would like to meet them, come to our Pet Fair this Saturday, March 4, at Pet Food Express on Miramonte in mountain View from 1-5 and fill out an application on our website: felinefriendsnetwork.org

  • Domestic Short Hair - brown, Tabby - Brown
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Friendly Flyn is a magnet of a cat. At his foster home, he was minding his own business in the back yard when we spotted him through the bedroom window. He made eye contact with us from the yard like a Cheeta makes with prey, he was so confident and alluring! We couldn't wait to meet him!!! His foster mother fetched him from the back yard, and we bonded like glue. Little boy Flyn is the epitome of the cat's version of a man's best friend. He seems to know people, or need people, like dogs do. There is nothing aloof about this young feline! When initially found, he had lost the use of his back legs due to a spinal infection. With treatment, he has not only regained near full function, his road to recovery was rapid and astounded even the vet. Although he continues to require daily antibiotics, his miracle recovery status indicates that antibiotics may soon be in the rear view mirror. Also, his time on the street has resulted in an FIV positive status, so we are grateful that he is a gentle soul, and timeshares beautifully with his other nine kitty room mates. (Cats that are FIV positive can live long lives without problem). Flyn loves to be outside, but should be monitored. To meet Friendly, please fill out an application at: felinefriendsnetwork.org

  • Domestic Short Hair-orange

I originally found Orange Boy wandering around the neighborhood late last May assumed he was another feral Community Cat. He arrived in my yard injured with a severe bite wound to his leg. His wound was open; he walked with great difficulty. My backyard chaise lounge became a safe place for him to slowly recover & have daily access to fresh food and water. He was shy but non-aggressive. After a couple of months, I succeeded in trapping him. I took him to the Milpitas shelter (HSSV) where he became part of their T-N-R program. After being neutered, microchipped, treated for fleas worms, given basic vaccinations, he was released back to me. The shelter (mistakenly) thought he was feral therefore not a good candidate for adoption. As time went on, it became clear to me that Orange Boy had once had a home. He did not respond in the ways common to other feral cats. He was friendly as he got to know and trust me. He began to approch me with ease instead of keeping a safe distance. He purred &enjoyed head pats. He meowed for food and slept on the tall chair next to our front door. As the weather turned cold wet, I invited OB into the (carpeted) garage, where he has comfortably been since. He loves his kitty bed, uses his litter box, is unphased by the opening of the garage door. After his months on the street, I knew he'd benefit from an overall exam some and general maintenance so I took him to my vet where he was examined, evaluated, and cared for (bath, flea treatment, exam, ears cleaned, nails clipped). He sat calmly in the car enroute, since he was too large (18 lbs) for the carrier. No fuss at all! He is clearly a mellow boy, since he was also calm at the vet's office! His thorough exam included comprehensive bloodwork. We hoped having this information would make adopting him easier &more appealing. The disappointing news is this: Orange Boy is FIV+, likely a result of the deep bite wound he endured. (There was an aggressive, intact, feral male cat hanging about at the time of OB's injury.) The good news is that FIV is NOT easily transmitted, unlike Feline Leukemia. It is typically passed only via deep bites. OB's other labs are stellar & he shows no sign of additional health problems. He happily shows no sign of gingivitis, common to many FIV+ cats. Going forward, it would be best if he were adopted into a home where he lived indoors, as either the only cat or with other FIV+ cats. Kitties with FIV make loving pets & many can enjoy a normal lifespan. This is what our vet said & expects, based on his lab results. He offered to speak directly with anyone open to adopting Orange Boy. Sadly, out of fear or misinformation, many FIV+ cats are euthanized. I would like to spare OB this fate, since he is an awesome, sweet kitty. Regrettably, I am unable to keep him. I have cared for & will continue to care for him for as long as possible, but I do need to find him a home soon. If any of you are open to adopting him or meeting him, or know someone else who may be, please message me privately. Thank you! If you would like to visit Orange Boy, please contact FelineFriendsNetwork.org P.S. I knew little about FIV & had to educate myself.

  • Domestic Short Hair, Tabby - Brown
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Tiger Bell is an absolute sweetheart of a kitty who *loves* attention and adores being petted. She will curl up next to you and ask for the pets and to be by your side as you're doing things. It's obvious that in her previous cat-life, she was a pampered Queen of the House, and your home (and you!) will be her domain. Tiger was abandoned by a student and taken to a shelter where we found her. She is a very well behaved kitty, doesn’t chew on things, uses the litterbox fine, and is a pretty polite cat as far as furniture and objects go. She does love having a box up by the windowsill so she can look out and see the world go by. She is spayed and her shots are all up to date. We believe she is about 5 years old, and in very good health. Tiger would like to be an only cat - we believe she was one previously, and she wants you all to herself. Was not raised to share her toys (and why should she, when she's obviously the Queen? ^^). Want to do a Foster-to-Adopt? We have a special program for some of our cats where if you'd like to evaluate how they get along with your home, you would sign up initially to foster Tiger Bell for a period of time (usually 3-6 months) and bring her into your household and see how you and she get along. If all works out, when the trial period is over, you can adopt her as an official house member. If, for any reason, it doesn't work out before then, she'll come back to FFN. Tiger Bell can be seen regularly at the Feline Friends Network monthly adoption fairs at Pet Food Express in Mountain View (first Saturday of each month - see our website for more details). http://felinefriendsnetwork.org/adoption/

  • Torbie, Domestic Short Hair

  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Special Needs
Cree is a super sweet 'mature' lady with a turn around story that will make you an adoption believer. When she was discovered, she was as feral as cats get, so you could not pet her. Her rescue squad speculated that she was likely on her own for quite a while, maybe years. But it didn't take long for this behavior to melt, and before long, under her current foster mother's care, she was soon hugging Laurie around the neck with both paws! Laurie thinks of Cree as the poster kitty for why cats need homes; OUR homes. Cree would like a foster home equipped with laps; as she loves her nap time best when it is on a loving lap. She is hard of hearing, and requires daily high blood pressure medicine. Find out more at http://www.felinefriendsnetwork.org/adoption/
