Cats For AdoptionThank you for choosing to look for your new feline companion at the Forgotten Ones Cat Rescue. Every time a cat or kitten is adopted, we can help another get a second chance.

Adoption Process

After we review your application, we will contact you by email or phone about the cat you would like to adopt, and tell you more about the cat or kitten you are interested in. This process could take anywhere from 24 to 48 hours.

If you are not sure which cat you would like to adopt we will help you find the purrfect match.

Once your application has been approved a meeting will be schedule with a volunteer to finalize the adoption. There is additional paperwork to complete and an adoption fee to be paid before you can take your new feline companion(s) home. The adoption fee covers the following services and allows Forgotten Ones - a not for profit registered charity - to recoup a small portion of the costs incurred providing care and/or rehabilitation to the animals. You must have a suitable cat carrier to take home your new friend.

Are you Ready to Adopt a Cat?

Please Help us save the lives of these wonderful little creatures that enrich our lives so much.

REMEMBER!!!! Adopting a pet is a lifetime commitment of 15 years or more.

It is sometimes difficult to resist a cute kitten but all kittens quickly become cats, and when the novelty wears off, that cute kitten, now a young cat more often than not, ends up in the pound on death row.

Most cats turned into the pound are between 6 mos to 2 yrs of age.

Consider long and hard when adopting and don't make an impulse decision.

Do your research and ask yourself whether or not you have time needed to care for a pet, although cats are more independent than dogs, they still require care and attention.

Ask yourself some important questions. Does your current lifestyle seem to fit with the responsibility needed to own a cat.

Do you travel frequently, are busy with work, kids or school?


Save a Life - Adopt a Black Cat

DID YOU KNOW THAT BLACK CATS have the lowest adoption rate and the highest euthanasia rate?

Whether because of superstition, prejudice, or simply because they blend into the shadows in the back of the cage, black cats are statistically less likely to be adopted than more brightly colored felines.

Many rescues are reluctant to accept black cats into their program as they are so hard to re-home, meanwhile these wonderful cats are left waiting in pounds and municipal shelters with hopes of finding a loving home, only to be destroyed once their time is up.

Most adopters prefer the flashier, more colorful cats, such as the orange and calico's or the classic tabby and often overlook these regal & exotic beauties.

Yet the black cat is probably the gentlest of all breeds and the smartest.

They were always considered good luck in England and are still considered good luck throughout most of Europe.

If you are thinking of adopting, please consider adopting a black cat, you are truly saving a life!!!

They have so much love to offer and ask for so little in return.

Most of the black cats that we have rescued, have had the most wonderful and loving personalities.

BLACK CATS RULE!!!


Cat Versus Kitten

Perhaps because kittens are so very appealing, adult cats have the lowest adoption rates at many shelters.

While prospective adopters head straight for the kitten section, hundreds of thousands of adult cats purr hopefully in their cages, and thrust their soft paws beseechingly through the bars as if they understand the importance of catching someone's attention.

Too many never get a second chance and that's a real shame.

It's a tragedy for the cats of course, but it's also unfortunate for many people who don't realize that an adult cat may, in many cases, be a better choice.

You know pretty well what you're getting with a grown cat---activity level, sociability and health.

Given time in a loving environment, a grown cat forms just as tight a bond with his new people as any kitten can, and we believe that in some cases recycled pets are more appreciative, somehow, of a chance at a happy life.
