Culpeper Felines & Friends is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of companion animals in Culpeper County, and finding permanent and loving homes for the felines in our care. We provide a safe haven for animals in transition through a network of foster homes, and serve as advocates for homeless and helpless felines in our community.
In 2012 CF&F found homes for over 400 cats. We are set to increase that number significantly in 2013. As of the end of October we are closing in on 500 adoptions. All of these cats were spay/neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped.
We depend on the generosity of people like you so we can continue our efforts to help the animals. Please consider a donation through the CFC or directly here on this Web site.

Andre' - He is a 2 year old, neutered, Russian Blue (gray) male cat with a sweet disposition, albeit very timid. If you are looking to make a difference in someone's life, Andre' is your guy. Although he is a sweetheart, he needs work with socialization.
He came from a Culpeper neighborhood with his bestest friend, Olivia Sue (Olivia Sue passed away in late October)). They showed up in a nice lady's yard one day and she fed them for about a year before contacting us when fox took over her yard. Andre' and Olivia Sue were absolute best friends. Now that Olivia has passed, Andre looks for her everywhere, apparently not realizing that she is gone.
He gets along with the other cats and doesn't seem to mind my 2 labs very much. He is a calm cat who enjoys affection and will often rub against your legs affectionately; however, he still seems frightened to be touched. That being said, Andre' has been living with my family and is very respectful of furniture, is good in the litter box, is mannerly, and is everything you would want a cat to be. He is just very shy. I believe that once he is in a quiet home of his own, with a kind and patient person, he would blossom.
The perfect home for Andre' would be a quiet home with no children. Andre' is up to date on shots, spayed/neutered, microchipped, and comes with a free wellness exam. For more information on Andre,' please contact Lynn at GoodMews22@aol.com. Andre' has been waiting for a home since October 2011, please don't forget about him.
Tisha was found as a stray with her litter of kittens last spring in downtown Culpeper. They were taken to the shelter, and brought to a foster home. Sweet Baby was found as a young kitten with his brother, eating from the porch of his now foster mom. Long story short, his brother was caught and brought into the foster home first, but Sweet Baby did everything to stay near his brother without actually being caught.
He began to cry loudly on the porch for his brother every night. He slept in the heated dog carrier and on the patio furniture on the porch, and would even put his paw inside the window and touch his foster mom's hand, but wouldn't come inside. Finally, after many months, he finally allowed himself to be caught and was rejoined with his brother. Oh happy days! His first night, he was placed in a condo (to get used to human touch) in the room his brother was in. I woke up to find that somehow his brother had unlocked the condo and freed him and they were sleeping, all curled up together, side by side. Together again at last!
Sweet Baby and his brother lived with their foster mom for over a year. Sadly, his brother died suddenly from an aggressive lung infection last summer. Sweet Baby was lost without him. Tisha had come just a few weeks earlier and was adjusting to her foster home.
Throughout the months, they moved to different rooms in the house together, but it wasn't until last September when Cupid's arrow struck their hearts. Now they are inseparable. They eat and sleep together and groom each other. As you can see from the pictures, they now sit atop the "crow's nest" in the climber and watch the world together.
Both cats are similar in personality. Both cats are healthy. They are respectful of furniture, great in the litter box, but will not allow themselves to be touched or pet. They just like to live happily without human contact. Kinda crazy, but it works for them. That's not to say that the right person in a quiet home can't get them to blossom...they probably can. At one point, Tisha allowed herself to be petted on a regular basis, but when her foster mom went back to work, she became 'aloof' again. They must be indoor only cats.
These two sweetie pies will need a special person to love them. Someone who is patient and will allow them to flourish in their new home. Both Tisha and Sweet Baby are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, combo tested, and microchipped. For more information on these little lovebirds, please contact Lynn at GoodMews22@aol.com or call #540-937-6171.
