My Three Sons
Hi Ann – just wanted to touch base to let you know how the boys are doing. As you can see in the attached picture everyone is doing well.
Note: Hari (orange) and Coty (russian blue) are from Allison's litter also. Here they are shown with their very bestest new friend.
Hello Ann, You may remember that it was thanks to you that my husband and I adopted a cat you had located in Shelton, CT. We adopted her two days after Thanksgiving 2012. We are so grateful. Fala has been a perfect pet - very adaptable, affectionate and sociable, even with strangers, as well as a good car traveler. She does have strong opinions on matters of significant importance to her and has done an excellent job on training us on how to please her. One year ago you put a picture of her on your Happyendings website. I am attaching here a cute recent picture of Fala on our elephant taken on November 22 in case you wish to update her picture. But if you find the picture too dark, I am enclosing two other pictures taken this past spring.
My best wishes to you and Forgotten Felines for 2014. Regards, Antoinette
These were the two little ones along with about 20 others that were thrown out of their house in mahopac in the bitter cold and just before the blizzard hit when their owner moved. The landlord refused to provide them with shelter saying he was going to shoot them instead. Here Twilight and Nemo are all comfy cozy in their new home watching the birds at their backyard feeder.

Angie is an older Forgotten Felines foster kitty who was in a great deal of pain and couldn't eat because her teeth were infected. Thanks to a long time supporter of our kitties, Angie had a complete dental and is now happily eating and free once again of pain.
Angie's and all of us at Forgotten Felines give a great big thanks to Sean - her guardian angel... Purrs!
Here is a picture of Sasha with her new friend, Nanuuq, in her forever home. Keep up the great work. You really make a difference! ~Henry
MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM LEROY
See LeRoy's story on our Preccious Needs Kitties page.
Hi Ann: Please see the attached pic of LeRoy. He looks so handsome! He has even gained more weight! Is it possible to share it with Sue as well? Have a great Holiday! Take care, Kat
Here is a picture of our cat Cory who I adopted from Ann at Forgotten Felines in May 2010. Corey was somewhat shy when I brought him home and hid behind our couch and under our beds and it took a while for him to relax and get use to our home, but after a few months he seemed like he had been with us forever. He is very a curious and fun loving cat – he loves to look through all the packages and everything that you bring home and is just interested in everything. He has adjusted to our home very nicely and is just a loveable cat.
Dear Forgotten Felines:
PAULIE - A VERY LUCKY FIV+ KITTY
Hi Ann.. I lost one of my two cats to cancer last January after 18 wonderful years. To me, the best way to honor a beloved pet’s memory is to provide another cat the same opportunity to experience the joy of a good home. So, in August, I contacted Forgotten Felines to inquire about getting another cat. It wanted it to be an FIV positive like my other kitty. Ann steered me toward Paulie, who at the time was living at the Peekskill Animal Hospital.
Paulie was a stray who was being fed outside by some kind people; however, after he contracted a severe eye infection, they took him to the Animal Hospital. Paulie, named after the vet who fixed him, quickly won over the staff with his warmth and friendliness. Sadly, he lost his eye but it doesn’t stop him and gives him somewhat of a rakish look! My other female cat loves him and they both get plenty of exercise racing around the house. Everyone who meets him is charmed by his sweet disposition.
I still miss my cat but it’s gratifying to see Paulie delighting in the same things my other cat used to do and it’s endless fun to learn about a cat’s unique personality. I urge anyone who has lost a pet to mourn them and then open their heart to a new love.The rewards are worth it. Diane
For FIV+ info and how you can have an FIV+ kitty with "normal" kitties as long as they are introduced properly without any fighting, please visit our
Remember, FIV+ kitties can and do live long lives with just regular care and good diet.
If you have adopted a kitty from Forgotten Felines, please send us your Happy Endings story along with a cute picture. We would love to put him/her on our website.
And for those of you who have brought in a homeless stray kitty and given it a home and love, we'd love to put your kitty's pictre & story up too.
Hi Ann, Here's a picture of Bernice (formerly Ashlee - my mother thinks Bernice fits her). We love her so much! She initially hid for 3 days, but quickly adjusted and is outgoing, playful and happy. She's a total joy! Maura
Note: Ashlee is one of Allison's six kittens. Allison, almost a kitten herself, was rescued from the streets of the Bronx and promptly gave birth three days later to a gorgeous litter. What a shame it would have been if they had been born homeless. Thanksfully, they have all found loving homes.
Ashlee: one of her favorite hobbies.
Ashlee: worn out and needing a nap
GOLDIE GIRL NOW MARMALADE HAS FOUND HER BFF, WOODROW
Hi Ann, I just wanted to give you an update.... Goldie girl is now called Marmalade. She easily adjusted to home life and she and our other kitten get along fantastically. She is extremely vocal and very affectionate. We just love her!
p.s. She was spayed in December
Rosiemarie started out as a "barn home" cat but as you can see, she has decided to become a housecat with barn privileges. Her best friend is Theresa, an adopted pit bull mix, and "her" horse who resides in the barn.
Happened to see an advertisement for Forgotten Felines and went on your website and wanted to share with you a happy ending. We adopted Harley almost 20 years ago from Forgotten Felines, a foster home in , where he was a 6-week-old kitten who was found along with his very sick brother abandoned in a parking lot. Almost 20 years later, he's lived a wonderful life and is now enjoying his retirement in in his new house with mountain views and lots of sunny spots to nap. I've attached a picture of him. It's hard to believe he's almost 20 years old.
I am sending you a picture of our adopted cat.
We named her Fala as we were inspired by the name FDR gave his beloved Scottish terrier. Thank you again for finding Fala for us. She is indeed a good traveler and has adapted well to her new surroundings. My husband and I extend to you our warm thanks, best, Antoinette
Dear Forgotten Felines,I just made a donation in memory of my cat Laith who was rescued by Forgotten Felines 16 years ago when she was just a kitten. I had asthma and was allergic to cats; I stopped by a pet adoption event just to "pet" the kitties knowing that I shouldn't have one of my own. Laith had been hit by a car and the sign on her cage said she needed to be in a one cat family; her foster family couldn't keep her because her legs had been broken and she was afraid of the other cats. She was grey with beautiful green eyes, cowering in her litter box at the back of her cage, already 9 months old, one look and I fell in love with her. Out I walked with a shopping cart piled high with litter, food, toys, a bed, and Laith. The foster family had named her Laith - Gaelic for gray I was told - it is pronounced Leah and I never changed it. She learned to walk on a lead and I took her everywhere; on long trips to our family place on Cape Cod Laith was the only kitty at the rest stop out for a walk on her leash. I will remember her always with her dainty paws stepping carefully through the grass, claiming the couch as her own, stalking away when I produced some new cat food she didn't approve of, tapping me gently awake in the morning, lounging in the sun, and always always running to greet me when I got home. She was my best friend and I miss her every day, but i would never have had the chance to meet her if it hadn't been for Forgotten Felines. And I am very grateful.Best regards, Katharine
