Cat Stories and People's Perspectives

 Meet Princess from Beaverton, OR. She's cared for by Al and his friend Kate, who began feeding her when they noticed she was frequenting the neighborhood quite often. As the days went on, Princess began to get very round...Al and Kate knew they were in for a batch of kittens. They took her in to prepare for the new litter and Princess eventually gave birth to 5 kittens in a suitcase! FCCO will be seeing the kittens next week for their spay/neuter appointment and Princess is now officially retired from mommy duty. Purrs of thanks to Al and Kate for caring for feral cats and a special shout out to Al's sister Rosario, who helped transport Princess to her spay appointment today!

 Meet our Cats of the Day from La Center, WA. These four little kittens and their mama are cared for by Jamie. Jamie noticed this mama kitty sniffing around her barn one day. She looked very hungry so Jamie decided to put food out for her. The mama cat scarfed down the food and Jamie knew she probably wasn't being fed elsewhere. After feeding the mama cat regularly, Jamie was suprised to find the cat was actually pregnant! Today FCCO was able to spay/neuter and vaccinate mama kitty and all four kittens! Purrs of thanks to Jamie for caring for feral cats!

“This organization does soooo much for our community and cats! We have brought many abandoned and feral cats here and they always provide great care and service. We were able to keep two of our rescues and they are super pampered house cats now and LOVE IT!.”

 Meet Greg and Francis, our Cats of the Day from N Portland! They're cared for by Mary, who noticed a female and male cat had claimed her yard and garage as their own. After a while, the female cat decided to chase off her male companion and gave birth to 4 kittens in Mary's garage! Mary has found a home for Francis and she will be keeping Greg as her own. We spayed/neutered these 2 lovebugs and their siblings will return to FCCO in a couple of weeks when they are big enough for surgery to go through our Kitten Caboose program for adoption. In the meantime, Mary will be keeping an eye out for their mama as she has gone into hiding as of late! Purrs of thanks to Mary for caring for feral cats!

 Meet 50/50 from Damascus, OR! He's cared for by Brenda who had gotten all of the ferals she feeds spayed/neutered years ago through FCCO. A couple of months ago a neighbor told Brenda they had seen an orange kitty in her driveway. Brenda knew this kitty wasn't one of the cats she'd already gotten spayed or neutered before as none of them were an orange color! As 50/50 started coming around more regularly, he became aggressive with Brenda's other feral cats and she knew it was time to get him in to FCCO for his neuter. Purrs of thanks to Brenda for caring for feral cats!

 Meet Leo, our Cat of the Day! He's cared for by Rebecca, who is helping feed a colony of feral cats in a local mobile home park. Rebecca brought in Leo and 5 of his feral friends to be spayed/neutered and vaccinated! That's quite a few cats that could be contributing to the breeding cycle but thankfully they have now been through FCCO. Purrs of thanks to Rebecca for taking on the care of this colony and for caring for feral cats!

 Meet our beautiful cat of the day, Bobby! She came to FCCO all the way from Timber, OR. Her caregiver Linda noticed quite a few new kitties in her area but had no idea where they came from. When she realized the number of cats on her property started to grow rapidly she knew she had to do something to stop the breeding cycle. FCCO spayed/neutered and vaccinated 16 cats from Linda's colony and we'll be seeing the remainder of her colony soon! Purrs of thanks to Linda for caring for feral cats!

 Meet Mama Kitty from Damascus, OR! She is cared for by Richard, who noticed her prowling the neighborhood but despite his efforts he was never able to get near her. Mama Kitty ended up having a litter of kittens and Richard knew he needed to get her spayed before she had any more. He trapped her kittens and attempted to trap Mama Kitty many times to no avail. After a couple of weeks she finally took the bait and FCCO was able to spay Mama Kitty as well as vaccinate her and treat her for parasites. She'll be enjoying a relaxing summer free from the breeding cycle! Purrs of thanks to Richard for caring for feral cats!

“FCCO is an amazing organization! The staff is friendly and professional. We have done trap, neuter, release (TNR) for lots of the feral kitties in our neighborhood. It really helped keep the numbers of cold, sad and sick kitties down!”

 This fuzzy bunch hails from Oak Grove, OR. Debbie found a litter of kittens under the garden shed at her parents house. She helped capture the kittens and from there she bottle fed and socialized them. Debbie was also able to find homes for the whole litter! We're happy to say they've all been spayed/neutered and vaccinated before going to their new furever homes. Purrs of thanks to Debbie for caring for feral cats and for making such a huge difference in these little lives!
