The Feral Cat Foundation (FCF) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization whose primary mission is to help people live with the feral and forgotten cats and kittens in the communities of Alameda and Contra Costa counties of northern California. We accomplish this through the nationally-recognized and effective method of "TNR" (trap-neuter-return). When possible, tame cats and kittens are adopted to loving homes. Cats that cannot be socialized are returned to the location where they were trapped and fed daily by caring volunteers. The lack of resources and a sanctuary prevent FCF from being able to take owner surrenders, rescue cats from shelters, or remove cats from neighborhoods. We invite you to read FCF's Commitment Statement and hope you enjoy your visit to our website.

News & Activities

In 2017 the members of Feral Cat Foundation spayed and neutered about fifteen hundred cats and kittens. There are many areas in Alameda and Contra Costa counties that have not had any kittens born in two or three years. We call these "controlled colonies", and celebrate each one as a success. However, for every one of those there are five more colonies that still need to be done. You can read about our efforts to battle that in our Winter Newsletter.

If You Find Kittens

It is very important to assess the age of kittens BEFORE handling them. If you pick up a kitten that still has it's eyes closed, chances are the mother will reject the kitten. Babies this young have a very slim chance of surviving with bottle feeding. On the other hand, waiting until a kitten is 6 months old to attempt socialization is also asking for disaster. Here is a guide to age and appropriate action.

Cats of the Week

Mickey and Mercy


Mercy lost an eye to a very bad case of herpes and had entropion repair surgery on the other eye because the lid was curving inward causing the lashes to scratch her cornea. Despite her rough start in life, she is an amazingly well adjusted kitty. She is a little love bug. Very playful, curious and snuggly. She is very bonded to Mickey, who has been by her side through months of treatment and recovery. M and M play together, sleep together and get into mischief together. This duo would make a lovingly entertaining addition to any family. You can meet them Saturdays at the Petco in San Ramon from 11am to 3pm.
