YOU’LL GIVE A FIG ABOUT NEWTON!! This sweet, somewhat shy boy has a beautiful grey coat and lovely golden eyes! Newton loves to be brushed, petted, and loved by all of his volunteers at the shelter. When you put your hand down to him from across the room and call his name, Newton will come to you for petting and loving. He would be grateful for a patient, quiet home where he would be loved and adored furever! To adopt Newton or any other cat or kitten, please call the Forgotten Felines adoption line at 860-669-1347 or go to our adoption page for an online application .

Maisy and Teddy
Aren’t they just so precious? This bonded sister and brother love to trill and chirp, chase each other, sit for treats and enjoy sleeping together. Maisy, a female gray, black and white tabby kitten, likes to lay on her pillow in the window and watch the world go by. Her brother, Teddy, who is a brown, black and white tabby, loves to play with his toys. These siblings get along very well with other cats. Shy at first, they will come around once they get to know you, especially if you offer kitty treats. What are you waiting for? Open up your heart today and give these babies a good home with love and affection. For an appointment to meet Maisy and Teddy, call Forgotten Felines at (860) 669-1347 as they will be scooped up quickly.
