There are thousands of homeless cats in the Middle Keys. Colonies of homeless and abandoned (stray) cats form and multiply wherever they can find a food source, however meager, including dumpsters and vermin.
We spay/neuter as many homeless cats as our finances allow on a regular basis, and there is never a time when we have a surplus of money with no cats to spay or neuter. Forgotten Felines volunteers feed over 500 homeless and abandoned cats every day.
We are in desperate need of cash donations and cat food, as well as volunteers
able to help us with our TNR Program (Trap, Neuter, Release) and volunteers to
provide foster homes for adoptable felines until placed into forever homes.
Next Meeting: January 28th.
Mark your calendars for our first FF meeting of the new year: Monday, January 28, starting at 6 pm at the Martin Luther Chapel behind NAPA Auto Parts in Marathon.
Come and meet our awesome volunteers and supporters and cat lovers like you. Enjoy free refreshments and raffle prizes while learning the latest news and happenings in the world of the felines of the Florida Keys.
We hope to see you there!

Kitten Shower Adoption Event.
On Saturday, June 30, 2012, FF held our first adoption event of the year. The event also included the Open House of Cheap Shot’s Mobile Vet Clinic. We found homes for three kittens and one adult cat and attendees browsed the Purrfect Thrift Store!
FF would like to thank the following people for making the Kitten Shower Adoption Event happen: Lee and Barbara with Cheap Shots for letting us use their mobile vet clinic, Melissa Grady with Centennial Bank for providing hotdogs. Doug Hitchcock with Thunder Country 103.5 for radio show event promotion. Thank you to all the volunteers and foster parents!
Caring for Cats (C4C) and Forgotten Felines (FF) held the third annual Fur Ball 2012 on April 20, 2012 at the Postcard Inn at Holiday Isle in Islamorada, FL. The event was a huge success– raising $16,000, which was spilt between FF and C4C ! The money helped both organizations with their spay/neuter and feed the cats program, as well as covering veterinary expenses. The Fur Ball started as an annual Caring for Cats benefit.
