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.
We have lost several colony feeders due to health reasons and
moves. If you have an hour or two to spare each week and would
like to make a real difference, please check out our priority needs page.
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.

Mercy came to us blind from a severe herpes eye infection and with burns and scabs on her ears. She was in bad shape. After multiple trips to the vet, several medications and loving foster care, Mercy is beginning to heal. She appears to be gaining some vision back in her right eye but the left eye was too badly damaged to save. Mercy will need to have the eye removed to avoid recurring infection.
Mercy is a sweet, playful and loving kitten. She will climb in her fosters lap and purr away happily. She deserves a chance at living a healthy life and needs your help to do so. Please donate to her surgery fund.
