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. We invite you to read FCF's Commitment Statement and hope you enjoy your visit to our website.

URGENT-Colony Feeders Needed
We have lost several colony feeders due to health reasons and moves. If you have an hour or two to spare each week and would like to make a real difference, please check out our priority needs page.

Kitten Fosters Needed!

Kitten season is upon us and we desperately need fosters to house the kittens until they are adopted into forever homes. Foster families provide food, shelter, love and socializing. They also transport the kitties to vet appointments and adoption events. FCF pays all medical bills, provides medications, flea treatment, support and guidance. If you have room in your home and your heart, please call our hotline 925-829-9098.

If You Find Kittens

It is very important to assess the age of kittens BEFORE handling them. If you pick up a kitten that still has it's eyes closed, chances are the mother will reject the kitten. Babies this young have a very slim chance of surviving with bottle feeding. On the other hand, waiting until a kitten is 6 months old to attempt socialization is also asking for disaster. Here is a guide to age and appropriate action.

This sweet little calico kitten was found abandoned under a tree in a mobile home park. She is suffering from a condition known as Feline Eyelid Agenesis, a birth defect where the eyelid doesn't form properly and can't protect the eye from debris causing infections, ulcers and eventually blindness. There is a surgical procedure to reconstruct the eyelid so that Sundance can lead a healthy, normal life, but it is quite costly. We need your help to raise the money for Sundance's surgery.

Cats of the Week

Luke

Luke, a beautiful black and white Tuxedo kitty, is about 11-12 mos old. His eyes are lovely green and his feet have white boots. He is VERY loving and such fun!. He is happy to cuddle, play with his toys or relax next to you while you're watching TV or working on the computer. He truly is a buddy type kitty who will bring a lot of love and joy to someone. He runs up to you the minute you walk into the room. He is full of life and makes you laugh.
Luke is neutered, had vaccinations, Revolution, FIV/FeLV tested (neg) and micro chipped. He would most likely do well with another cat or even a kitty friendly dog. He is still a kitten in training and gets excited when playing..so no small children. Probably a child over 12 would be fine
For more info or to meet Luke, email theroyaltreatmentjudith@yahoo.com or call (510) 653-2345.
