a different kind of animal shelter

Forgotten Felines is a private, all-volunteer, 501c3 organization in Westbrook, CT, serving ten towns along the Connecticut River and shoreline. We rescue homeless cats and kittens,  care for them in our no-kill shelter and work to find them loving, adoptive homes. 

cats of the week!


She’s beautiful. She’s black. She’s sweet. She’s petite. She has tiny wisps of white mixed into her fur. Wispy is a darling girl who adores being brushed and petted, and although she has a tiny little body, you won’t believe the giant purr she has when she sees you! Wispy lived outside and had multiple litters of kittens before being rescued. Now we can promise her that she will live the happy life of a companion forever. Are you the right protector of this little Wispy of a cat? To adopt any cat or kitten, please call the Forgotten Felines adoption line at 860-669-1347 or go to our adoption page for an online application .
