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!

nibbles
Nibbles found a lap!
YOU WILL WANT TO EAT UP NIBBLES!

This handsome gray and white boy was unneutered and homeless when rescued, wandering the streets and starving. He is very friendly and super sweet, and will climb into the first available lap, using his deep rumbling purr to charm you. Nibbles is so handsome, cute and loveable, that you’ll just want to eat him up! To adopt Nibbles 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 .

Lola and Phyllis
ADOPT A LOVING MOM AND DAUGHTER! Lola is a beautiful, long-haired, gray tiger who was abandoned in a cardboard box on the grounds of a hotel with her kitten, Phyllis. Phyllis is also a gray tiger, with a face and golden eyes just like mom, but with short hair and a beautiful fluffy tail. The two love to play and are very affectionate. Come LOL (Laugh Out Loud) at their antics! This mother-daughter team is sure to melt your heart. To adopt Lola and Phyllis or any other cat or kitten , please call Forgotten Felines at (860) 669-1347 or go to our adoption page for an online application

LOVELY, LUXURIOUS LILLY! Lilly came to our shelter when her owner became ill and could no longer care for her. She was very shy and withdrawn at first, but with the efforts of our volunteers, this black and white girl is now very friendly and will even sit on a lap or two when she’s feeling comfortable.
