About Us

We are Forgotten Felines of Sonoma County

Our Mission

Forgotten Felines of Sonoma County is dedicated to protecting and improving the lives of feral cats through local spay/neuter programs, placement services, community outreach and nationwide education.

Our Vision

Forgotten Felines of Sonoma County is committed to a world where all animals are treated with compassion and respect. We are dedicated to elevating the quality of life of feral cats and ending the pain and suffering of all cats living among us.

Our Primary Goals

1. Spay/Neuter Feral and Stray Cats
Colony Management
2. Pull “adoptable” cats and “tameable” kittens from colonies for adoption
3. Educate/Assist the public with all aspects of Feral Cat Colony Management

Forgotten Felines of Sonoma County practices the TTVAR-M method of feral cat control; Trap, Test, Vaccinate, Alter, Return and Maintain.

Through this method, cats are humanely trapped, given a rabies and FVRCP vaccination, ear tipped, and altered, then returned to their colony where they are fed and watered daily. Tame, adoptable adult cats are removed from the colony and placed into our Adoption Program. Depending on foster parent availability, we may be able to take feral kittens under the age of three months for socialization and adoption into a lifelong home.

TTVAR-M Method

It is our experience (as well as many other feral cat management organizations throughout the country) that the TTVAR-M method of feral cat control is the only long-term, humane solution for controlling the overpopulation of feral cats. With proper colony management, feral cats do not suffer and can live long past the expected mortality rate for cats who are just left to fend for themselves in the wild. We are still caring for cats in colonies that were first altered when our program began in 1990.
