August 4 - I see pictures of Adam when Tina is holding him and it just
amazes me the love that those two share...
To all that are following on Adam's recovery and well being. I just wanted to take the time which I'm sure others have done
but it's always nice to hear it again. I have been following the Adam story from day one and I was just looking again at pictures
and updates and wanted to voice something that I can't put into words. I see pictures of Adam when Tina is holding him and it just
amazes me the love that those two share, it brings tears to my eyes each and every time and in a good way. Adam looks so loved, cared
about, and at peace when she is holding him. It is so.. awesome to see every one at the veterinary hospital but really so when Tina is
with him how much of a blessing God has given Adam by being taken care of and loved (Tina). You see so much of these horrible things
people do to these innocent animals that God has blessed us with but it is especially nice to know people do care and treat animals like
they are part of the family not just an animal to say yes we have animals but don't treat them like part of the family. I also want to
thank Jennifer for taking the time out of her BUSY schedule to keep us updated on Adam, you are also a blessing. Thank you to EVERYONE
that has had part in this precious kittens (Adam) life.
Thank you and may God Bless all of you,
July 27 - It's better now, knowing that he is surrounded by people that care for
I've been following Adam's recovery, checking for updates on a
daily basis. I'm happy to see that he's recovering. The story
about him has really touch my heart in a way i never felt before..
Great sadness at first. But it's better now, knowing that he is
surrounded by people that cares for him and that he is recovering.
I've spared some of my money and sent a donation via mail.
bless you all!

July 27 - Following the story about the little hero Adam
Living in the southern part of Norway, I am also following the story about the little hero Adam. In my opinion he is a truly fighter and a strong personality too.
July 27 - I hope the girls realize what they did
Bless you for helping this baby. I hope the girls realize what they did; how
awful. I've asked all of my friends to send a donation.
July 26 - May you continue blessing these animals....
I think your organization is wonderful! May you continue blessing these animals....
July 26 - "A big wish that everything goes ok with Adam, from Portugal,
Great to know that Adam is recovering, hope that he can find a nice home
One day as I was leaving my job and I found a cat in the middle of the
road, it was injured (hit by a car) I took it to the hospital, and after a
surgery and recovery it became my pet, Lucky named, a true spectacular
With the help of God, I'm sure that you will keep giving assistance to
animals that due to a cruel reality, can only count with your help.
A big wish that everything goes ok with Adam, from Portugal,
July 26 - "God bless you, Dr. Alexander, Dr. Kathryn Hinkle and Tina Wright"
I am a cat owner and have read the story about Adam, the kitten burned by the two teenage girls.
God bless you, Dr. Alexander, Dr. Kathryn Hinkle and Tina Wright for caring so much for Adam.
I hope and pray that he will recover fully. I know that he has a long road ahead, but it is clear
that he has the best care there is. I have added your site to my Favorites and will follow his progress slowly.
With all the love and compassion that is being shown to him now, I know that he will be a loving addition to someone’s home in the future.
Again, bless you all.
July 25 - Learning of this horrid incident has driven to me start volunteering at
a local shelter
I wanted to extend a most sincere thank you for what you and all the folks at Forgotten Felines and Animal Hospital of Cotati are doing
for this amazing little kitten.
I sent an e-mail to the Forgotten Felines contact address that I found on the website. I'm not sure who that goes to, but I wanted to
also express to you my sincere interest in adopting Adam once he is recovered. I apologize for redundancy if you or someone else has
already seen my other e-mail. I know the hope is that Adam will stay with his current foster "mom". And if that is the case, I will
be thrilled. But if that does not work out for some reason, I hope my husband and I could be considered as potential adoptive parents.
I'm sure you have received an enormous amount of e-mail regarding the potential to adopt Adam, so to give you some info on us... My name
is Jackie Mowry. My husband, Ty, and I live in Totowa, NJ and we currently have 2 cats, Daisy and Oliver. Though we were not looking to
adopt another cat at this time, this story has touched us in a way that we cannot simply move past, as I'm sure it has to many others as well.
Daisy and Oliver (both rescued from local shelters) are indoor pets. They are very loved and very well taken care of. My husband is a state
trooper in New Jersey and I work for Schering Plough Corporation. With his changing schedule, we are often home at different times, so our cats
are often spoiled with a lot of attention both day and night.
We are extremely interested in being considered as adoptive parents to Adam when he has completed all the surgeries and recovery time at the
Animal Hospital in Cotati. I spoke with them today and they told me that there have not been any discussions of adoption as of yet since he
still has a long recovery ahead of him, but they did direct me to your website.
I truly hope you will consider us for his adoption. Though we live in NJ, we will actually be vacationing in Northern California in late
October. We don't know how long his recovery will be, but if he is still at the hospital then, we would love to go and visit with him.
And if considered and chosen to adopt, we will happily make the trip out there at any time to pick him up.
I look forward to reading the regular updates, and I thank you for reaching out to all the people who have shown their concern. And thank
you so much for your work with Adam, and the rest of these precious animals you work with. Learning of this horrid incident, and then of all
the people who are reaching out to help has driven to me start volunteering at a local shelter in NJ. I hope I can make a small difference
in those animals' lives as you do in California.
Best regards and sincere thanks,
July 25 - The story of burned baby Adam was heartbreaking beyond belief
The story of burned baby Adam was heartbreaking beyond belief, although I was heartened to hear he is doing so well.
My thanks goes out to you, the excellent veterinary staff, and the young boy who came to his rescue. I appreciate so
much the work you are all doing for animals, and only hope my small donation can be put to some use.
July 25 - It is heartwarming to see human compassion and how people
all come together
The recently added photos of Adam are so touching. It is heartwarming to see human compassion and how people all come together
to help a small animal. I am so happy Adam came through his skin graft surgery well. Everyone involved has been wonderful,
you are a beautiful team. I hope the donations exceed the medical costs.
July 25 - The ripple affect makes miracles more likely and possible for
cats all over the world
We are former volunteers (had to retire due to my worsening rheumatoid arthritis), my son, daughter and myself still consider ourselves as Forgotten Felines Family.
Your letter below is so touching, so perfectly expressive and beautifully written. You bring priceless gifts to the Forgotten Felines Family as the helm and matriarch.
Forgotten Felines is now literally world-famous--initially because of the horrifying abuse that a person--not to mention a young woman--can inflict on the most angelic and vulnerable in our society. Fortunately, the local and international press and word of mouth continued to bring attention to Forgotten Felines as Caesar and Sarah's fast thinking and compassion, along with FFS' commitment to fund for Adam's extensive and intensive medical care, quickly gave us all hope and faith in humanity itself. Finally, your grace-your eloquent use of language- opens the mind, body, and soul of each person to hear about Adam -as well as the mass consciousness of the world - to this most unique situation, the heroes to be celebrated, the dark side of abuse, and the very spirit of Forgotten Felines' mission and staff .
NO ONE would ever wish the situation for Adam or any other creature. However, this present moment is filled with so much endless potential, so much love, so many miracles for everyone involved--the ripple affect makes miracles more likely and possible for cats all over the world!! The consciousness of people EVERYWHERE has instantly provided so much healing, so many possibilities for feral, stray, and abused cats. So many around the world are being called to make a difference--for cats--and hopefully for those who are ill enough to abuse the helpless--ALL because their lives have been touched by Adam's story!
I honestly think that we are on the edge of a massive paradigm shift in the care of feral cats...yet another reminder that we are all connected by one higher consciousness-- we are one world, one mind. I am so proud to be part of the Forgotten Felines Family. I also feel so blessed because out of the darkest of moments one summer day in Santa Rosa, a true miracle is unfolding for all who are present to it.
We have sent in two donations so far, and as we can, we will continue to participate in Adam's Miracle--for not only him, but also for all cats in the Forgotten Felines Family and for all cats everywhere who are looking to give and receive unconditional love.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for facilitating Adam's Miracle!

assisting him in making his recovery, are constant. Likewise, what good news to learn of the recovery of Sampson !
The goodness of people continues to outshine the negative ! Phoenix would also be a good name for little Adam in that so

July 24 - I have a wonderful
friend in San Diego who operates 'Chateau de Meow', a shelter for
To all of the wonderful people who work at the Animal Hospital of Cotati and Forgotten Felines. I have had cats in my life
for as far back as I can remember and I'm 64. Some years ago I moved to live in Thailand and it never entered my mind to leave
my friend, Mister D behind. I flew on China Airlines and was allowed to bring Mr.D on board with me. I had the aisle seat and Mr.D
had the window seat. He was treated very well by the airline personel. When I read the story about Adam it just broke my heart. It is
clear to me that the people responsible for this tragedy have never had the pleasure of loving or being loved. I have a wonderful
friend in San Diego who operates a shelter for cats. It is called, " Chateau de Meow ". At one time she was caring for over 300 cats.
Her shelter is complete with staff and hospital. I just want to say " thank you and thank God there are people like you ". P.S. Mr.D
was a cat and lived to be 22 years old. I guess thats about 154 in cat years.
July 24 - Glad to hear that
you're showering Caesar and his friends who found and rescued Adam with
I am a cat lover from Dallas, TX who sent you some money to take care of
Adam, Sampson and all the other wonderful kitties you save and look after
out there in California.
I have so enjoyed getting news of Adam's recovery and glad to hear that
you're showering Caesar and his friends who found and rescued Adam with
Keep up the good work--our prayers and thanks are with you and all that work
at your shelter/hospital and for Adam's continued recovery!
July 24 - Seven feral cats came to live with us, each after much
coaxing and confidence building.
My wife Lori and I have taken in and cared for mostly feral cats for the past fifteen years. At one time, she
fed and cared for twelve homeless in a municipal park in Florida. She drove twice a day, twenty miles round trip,
to feed them food she prepared by hand (not canned.) We have photos of all twelve eating at one time, each with a plate.
Three went to homes we found, after they were spayed. Two had to be euthanized due to illness, once she managed to
coax them into reach. Seven came to live with us, each after much coaxing and confidence building. When we moved from
Florida to North Carolina, it took a Jeep and a rented van to move them all comfortably, each with a roomy cage. Here in
North Carolina we still have the oldest (17) and next oldest (16), plus mother and son we rescued from a rooftop retreat.
Three others have died naturally. Today we have five, all originally feral. All are loved, cuddled and kept in top health.
I believe that man's nobility is measured by how he treats lesser beings, so I'm saddened by Adam's mistreatment.
You undoubtedly will receive thousands of offers of a home for Adam when that day comes, but I wanted you to know that my
first reaction upon learning this horror was to wish Adam were here with us. I do believe I would drive across the country and back for that privilege.
We are not wealthy by any means, but I do thank you for what you are doing. Maybe some other kids will learn from it. I doubt the two girls will.
All the very best,

July 24 - I just sent a donation
from Maine to help defray the cost of his care.
Thank you for all you're trying to do for Adam. I just sent a donation
from Maine to help defray the cost of his care. I'm sure you've gotten a
lot of responses and hope there will be enough donations to pay for future
July 24 - I am a firm believer in making good things come out of bad
Thank you so much for the updates about Adam. I really look forward to hearing about how he is doing even though
reading them and looking at the pictures makes me cry!
I am a firm believer in making good things come out of bad experiences. I know that is what happening with Adam –
this little guy is surviving and will thrive against immeasurable odds and we are all learning lessons from him.
There will be outcomes from this that we may never know about and lives will be changed.
Cheers to all of you - Caesar (what a fine young man!), Sara, Tina, the Vets and all of you at Forgotten Felines.
You are all doing the right things for all of the right reasons!
I know Adam’s care is expensive – I have made a donation but I plan to make additional donations as I can.
Thank you for being there for Adam.
July 23 - "I am hoping with all my heart that he will get better soon."
Recently I read on the news about the story of Adam, the kitten that you
rescued, and it touched me very deeply. My name is Giselle, I live in
Ireland, I have loved cats (and animals in general) all my life, and I am
involved with a local charity that rescues cats as well (www.catsaid.org).
If I lived somewhere close to your organisation, I would love to get more
involved and to become one of your volunteers. Since this is not possible, I
am going to make a small donation towards the costs of Adams treatment
and/or helping other cats. You are doing a wonderful work, and I am very
grateful that there are people as caring as you helping animals in need. I
will continue to follow the updates on Adam's recovery, and I am hoping with
all my heart that he will get better soon.
Keep up the great work, kind regards,
July 19 - a big fat THANK YOU for being there for this little guy,
We live down near Glendale Ca....We've adopted two black cats since 1992 &
1999. Smokie (Bombae) - 1992 olderster but very healthy and Pumkin (scary
when playful due to size!)
Just a big fat THANK YOU for being there for this little guy, ADAM....
July 19 - I would love to make adam a part of our family here in the
Is Adam going to be available for adoption?
I am an attorney/nfl agent in south florida and would love to make adam a part of our family here in the office...
I think he would be a good source of inspiration to our clients/players who have to go through adversity to make it in the NFL.
We can promise him a lavish lifestyle, first class veterinary care, and a good home and human companions at all times to cater to his needs.
Daniel: That would be SO cool...especially the lavish lifestyle and
catering to his every need. (Adam would say "How do I get to Florida?"), but we hope that Adam will be adopted by his loving caretaker,
Tina, sometime down the road.
If not, however, your request (along with another hundred or so), will be
considered. OR...what about...
...adopting a special needs (or not a special needs) cat from your local shelter. I guarantee you they have one....maybe not as famous as Adam,
but just as much (or more so) in need of a loving, caring and really exciting home. Adopt him in Adam's name. THIS would make Adam's suffering
mean so much.....not only has Adam's life been saved, but the life of a fellow feline would be saved as well. Can you imagine pictures on our web
site of other animals adopted from shelters all over the country in Adam's
name...this would be AWESOME!
Give it some thought!
