We are a limited admissions, no-kill rescue that believes in helping every
kitty we can, by ensuring it will not reproduce an unwanted litter of kittens
and by also helping those that are abandoned, unwanted and homeless find a
loving forever family home. Every life matters! The ASPCA estimates that approximately 2.7 million
healthy, and perfectly adoptable pets are euthanized each year. Of that number
70% are kittens and cats. These numbers are heartbreaking! With your help, we
can prevent this from happening by helping reduce these numbers.
Please help Salem Friends of Felines prepare for the upcoming flood of
kittens. Kittens require special care and feeding, so we need to stock up now
before the shower of kittens starts to fall!
no idea that she would come to Salem Friends of Felines, find her new best
friend, and also get a wonderful surprise. Her adoption of the beautiful
homeless Persian, named Sir Wendell McFluffy, was a huge milestone for SFOF:
Adoption Number 8,000!!!
When we spoke with the new
owner on the phone, it was clear that these two souls were meant to be together.
As you can see from their first few weeks together, it's a match made in heaven!
reported that Wendell likes to sleep with her on the bed, right by her face. She
pets him on and off throughout the night. But...if he decides he wants more
attention, he reaches out with his paw and softly touches her nose.
day, Wendell is very playful and dashes around with Anita and his
wand. For those quiet times, Wendell has his cat tree in front of a window where
he spends hours watching the birds and snoozing in the sun.
And he's a
clean guy! Anita said that Wendell loves his daily grooming, and actually purrs
the entire time. This model kitty does have one peculiar habit, though. When
Anita isn't home, he likes to sleep in the bathroom sink!
laughed as she said, "Sometimes Wendell looks at me just like a little
saying to me, 'I know so much more than you'".
summed up this special relationship, 'We are going to be together a long, long
time. He brings so much joy into my life and makes me laugh. I feel so fortunate
to have him. Thank you, SFOF'!
If you are
looking for your new best friend and companion, please come to Salem Friends of
Felines. We have so many more wonderful kitties just like Sir Wendell McFluffy
that are looking for wonderful loving homes.
