About Dune *kitten*

Meet Dune! Dune is a gray and cream colored male Manx, just 4 1/2 months old, though he is a small for his age. He and his siblings, Tadpole, Cricket, JuneBug, and Fisher were literally dumped at the county dump as though they were trash. Thank goodness someone found them. Unfortunately, they brought them to a high-kill shelter that was over-capacity and they were immediately slated for death. Forgotten Felines of Culpeper jumped in to save them and they came to us on the Freedom Ride on July 8th. These poor babies were thin and sickly but are all better now. Every single kitten in the litter is a purr machine, loving, playful, and sweet.

Dune is no exception. He is a lovebug and a half! He prefers to sit quietly away from his romping siblings and watch from afar. He loves to be held and cuddled and pet. He would stay on your lap all day if he could. This sweet boy is a spacial needs kitten - kind of. Like most Manx kittens/cats, bc he has no tail, it is sometimes difficult for him to poop.The tail helps in the process. However, he is pretty much like any other kitten now, as long as you add a pinch of Miralax in his canned food every other day or every two days. That's it! He likes to eat dry food, too, but give him plenty of canned food - at least 2 cans a day and it will keep him regular. He is a sweetheart - well worth the effort!

Dune's purrfect home would be a quiet home, free of small children. He would need to be adopted with a sibling - his sibling of choice is JuneBug, but any sibling would do. His new mommy or daddy must love to cuddle and spend quality time with him. He will want to be with you all the time. They will need to be sure he sticks to his diet, as it is very painful for him if he doesn't. He must be an indoor only cat. This family has a strong family bond, probably because of all they have been through together.

Dune is neutered, had 2 distemper vaccines, a rabies vaccine, tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia, and is microchipped with a lifetime registration - you won't need to pay every year to re-register. Interested? Please email us at GoodMews22@aol.com.

Meet Alexus, an absolutely gorgeous white and black, female about 2 years old. This beauty keeps her fur in pristine condition! She and her 3 kittens were found staying close to a house in a rural area of Culpeper. Alexus, risked her life protecting them from a predator, and was found one day coming out of the woods, limping, swollen-faced, and bloodied. She constantly moved her babies to keep them safe. First to they all lived in a lawn mower bag, (Yes! You read right!) then she moved them up to a car engine. The kind lady living in the house trapped all of them and brought them to safety. Alexus' Violet Socialization Scale 4-5/10 Alexus has free roam of the cat playroom, but is skittish, and afraid to be touched. She loves climbing on the cat climber and looking out the window at nature, loves her canned food, is fabulous in the litter box, and gets along great with the other cats. Like all cats in the Shrinking Violets, Alexus needs an indoor only, quiet, low activity home with either no children or children over the age of 15 to blossom. We have not had a Violet yet that didn't absolutely flourish in a quiet home and become an awesome member of the family. It just takes patience. Alexus currently rates a 4-5/10 on our socialization scale, with 10 being a purrfect house cat, and is beginning to be interested in people. Alexus is spayed, has had her 1st set of rabies and distemper vaccines, and has tested negative for feline leukemia. Please give Lynn at call at 540-825-3744 or email GoodMews22@aol.com for more information on this beautiful girl. **Special Needs listed only due to socialization skills.** You can read more about Violets at our website.

Bashful is a beautiful short haired, gray and white cat, about 4 years old. She came to us awhile ago when she was pregnant with kittens, Her kittens have long been adopted, and now we are hoping that someone will adopt Bashful, too. Bashful was born to a feral mom, living in the woods on someone's rural property. She and her sister, Ghost (also available) often came to the porch to be fed and were used to being around people. Bashful has been with us for a few years. She is a Violet, meaning she does not like to be touched. (You can read more about Violets here: https://www.forgottenfelinesculpeper.org/violets) As you probably know by her name, she is bashful and likes to stay in the background, Once she knows you, she is comfortable being very close to you and may trust you enough to pet her head. She enjoys canned food every morning and loves looking out at the birds every day on her climber. She is great in the litterbox. We believe that once Bashful is in a quiet home, she will blossom. She will need a quiet home with no children or teenage-aged kids, that is low activity. She must be an indoor only cat. Bashful will be spayed, receive a rabies and distemper vaccine, be tested negative for FIV, feline leukemia, and heartworm. If you are a patient and loving person and have room in your heart and home for this girl, please email GoodMews22@aol.com show less

Say hello or give your finest howdy-doo to Benson. This 1 year old silly guy came to us a few weeks ago from death row. He is a lovebug and a half ~ a great companion cat, so much so, that even the staff at the spay-neuter clinic remarked on how absolutely lovable he is. Benson is a brown tabby who will flop on the ground, roll over, and rub on your legs as soon as he meets you. He needs a few social skill though, easy enough to fix, and we are working on them. Benson may bat at your hand or gently nip at you so that you will continue petting him. He is so happy to be alive and always so pawsitive, that he will stop whatever he is doing and meet you at the door to say hello. Benson's perfect home would be a quiet, low to moderate activity indoor home with children over the age of 10 years old. He loves affection and attention and wants to be by your side always. He will follow you around the room, jump into the crate of a cat he doesn't know, just to be near you and get your attention. Benson comes when his name is called, too! He loves to play and still has a lot of kitten in him. He is a busy guy. As mentioned earlier, he would also be a great companion cat for someone. Benson is neutered, had his rabies and FVRCP vaccines, tested negative for FIV, feline leukemia, and heartworm, and is microchipped with a lifetime registration. (You won't pay every year to renew!)
