Pandemic Changes Pertaining to Adoptions
~ We are continuing to do adoptions; however, prior to meeting a kitten or cat, you must have an approved application.
~ Each foster will decide what protocol to put in place for meetings and adoptions. This ranges from coming to meet the cat at their home, to meeting in a garage using social distancing, masks, and gloves, to a virtual Zoom meeting.
~ Some clients, once approved, prefer to wait to meet their kitten and take them home the same day, because, after all, what's not to love about a kitten?
However you meet your new family member, we aspire to provide a safe and healthy environment.
Why Adopt From Us?
We truly CARE and are PASSIONATE about cats.
We foster all of our cats in loving homes, so we know the purrsonality, compatibility, likes and dislikes of each and every cat we adopt.
We are the only local cat rescue that microchips their cats. Period. Each microchip has a lifetime registration. Most chip companies charge $18+ a year to renew service. Ours is lifetime and is registered with the AAHA - American Animal Hospital Association. If you lose your cat, every veterinarian knows about it and knows where your cat belongs to ensure that he safely returns to you.
We test for 3 things before your cat is adopted: Feline FIV/AIDS, Feline Leukemia, and Heartworm. Most rescues only test for Feline Leukemia.
We stay in contact. Should you ever have any questions about your cat's feeding or potty habits, behavior, etc., we are here. It doesn't end with the adoption.
WE CARE ABOUT OUR CATS. PERIOD.

Cats of the Month
BFFs Bentley & Stripes Magee
Meet Stripes Magee and you won't forget him! Stripe is a DSH male, black and white masked tuxedo, with a white stripe down his forehead, just over a year old. He was born in foster care on April 5th, 2018 when their mom, Valerie was transported to us from a high kill shelter. He is the only cat in his litter still here. His siblings and mom were adopted long ago.
Stripe is a loving, affectionate explorer, and investigator. He likes to think of himself as somewhat of a James Bond - danger and intrigue are his game and he is often getting into things he shouldn't - all in the name of exploring. He is a quirky little guy in that he doesn't seem to understand a cat's personal space. He will bound right up to a cat and be face to face, like "HHHHHELLO!!" You can often tell where he is just by the hissing. LOL He gets along great with other cats, though. Stripe is like the Energizer Bunny - always moving, always exploring.He is into everything and follows you everywhere.
He will follow you everywhere - in and out of rooms, upstairs and downstairs. He is the new ambassador to the house. He needs to know everything! Have a plumber come in? Stripes knows all about it and will watch him as he peers under the sink. He will sit diligently beside him until he is sure the problem is fixed, and then will show him to the door and meow goodbye.
Stripes gets along with everyone (his best friend is Bentley - a fellow investigator) but, like Bentley, he always seems to be in the midst of the trouble. You hear everyone meowing? Bentley & Stripes are in the middle of it and will come tearing around the corner and will stop suddenly when they see you ....with the sweetest look of innocence. Yeah, right. Bentley and Stripes are bonded and must be adopted together. There is a discount for adopting both.
Stripes' purrfect home would be an indoor only home with Bentley, with cat-friendly children over the age of 7 or 8 years old or no children at all. He would love to have a cat playmate, like Bentley. He must be an indoor only cat. He is neutered, dewormed, had 2 distemper vaccines, a rabies vaccine, tested negative for FIV, feline leukemia, and heartworm, and is microchipped with a lifetime registration.
You can adopt Stripe Magee & Bentley by going to our website at ForgottenFelinesCulpeper.org, , filling out an application, and email it to GoodMews22@aol.com.
Meet the handsome Bentley, just over a year old, handsome white and gray Agean tabby. Bentley came to us on the Freedom Ride in January 2019. We were told the vet was coming that day to euthanize the cats that other rescues had not chosen, and poor Bentley was among them. His shelter picture (below). devestated me. He looked as though he had given up any hope of ever getting out. He KNEW his fate.
He, like his best bud, Stripes, is the King of the House. He is the ladies man with swagger, the cats' meow, if you will. All the cat ladies love Bentley, as he is a groomer and a charmer...until he isn't. It is then that you will hear, "Meeeeooooowwww!" and Bentley and his partner in crime, Stripes will come roaring around the corner, with at least 3 lady cats chasing him. Bentley and Stripes are bonded and must be adopted together. There is a $20 discount for adopting both.
You are truly missing out, if you don't welcome these two into your home. You will never be bored or lonely during quarantine again! They will keep you amused and laughing.
Bentley is dewormed, neutered, received his distemper vaccine, rabies vaccine, and tested negative for feline leukemia, FIV, and heartworm. He is microchipped with a lifetime registration.
