A Forgotten Felines volunteer received a call last winter about an injured kitten that had been spotted. In talking with neighbors the volunteer learned that the kitten had gotten its leg caught in a chain link fence as she was scaling it, and her leg was severely broken. Observers remembered her cry of pain when it happened. After many, many attempts to trap her, she was finally rescued. Her broken and infected leg was removed, and she recuperated in a foster home. Then Benni, as she was named, began making the transition from a frightened young cat into one that purred when picked up. She learned to navigate around quite well on her remaining 3 legs, and didn’t hesitate when jumping up on her elevated cat condo/ scratching post. Then the quest began for a special human to adopt a special cat, and that someone was luckily found.

Benni now is in a wonderful home and loves her new human friends.

Pumpkin and Tuddles

A new feral colony began with a call from a friend one Sunday late November. She had spied a kitten that morning in an industrial area in north Denver. Returning in the afternoon she found the kitten alone in a deserted fenced lot and called me. We were able to trap the kitten and also discovered that the junkyard next door was her home along with other kittens and feral adults. Within several days, 3 female adults were trapped, spayed and returned to their home where they are being fed regularly. 3 kittens including Pumpkin & Tuddles were socialized and the quest for a loving home began. Several other cats living in the junkyard were also trapped and neutered/spayed.
Pumpkin and her friend Tuddles were adopted together to a loving home. In the process of trapping the feral cats, an adult male was also trapped, a dirty orange and white boy we named Dennis who turned out to be a very sweet 2-year old.
