FAAAS safely traps feral cats that we either find, or that find their way to us seeking refuge. We then take them to One-of-a-Kind Pets where they are spayed/neutered under their feral program. Those that have potential as house cats go to a partner organization for placement. Those that are deemed as better to live outside, make our sanctuary their permanent home. Each of them seems to have a particular fondness for finding their way to us during the winter holiday season. Michele has worked with all of these guys, turning them from feral to feisty, semi-domesticated kitties.

Short for Charlie Tuna because of his uncanny resemblance to the tuna fish commercials from way back when; Charlie T (CT) was found in the parking lot of a grocery store and became our first permanent cat resident the day after Christmas 2008. Today, CT is a great cuddler. He loves kisses, being brushed, and getting treats. In summer, CT loves sleeping in the hayloft or the catnip garden. In winter you’ll find him cozying up in his kennel. Charlie T is a born adventurer and loves hanging out in the pastures hunting for mice. One great mouser, this guy knows he’s “King of the Cats” at Forever Amber Acres!
Sometimes called Fudgers, Fudgie reminds us of a piece of swirled, chocolate-peanut-butter fudge! Michele trapped this little cutie out in the woods on a bitter cold night before Christmas Eve 2009. Fudgie is fully grown, but her legs are so short that one of our vets, Dr. Slenn, feels her growth was stunted because she had kittens herself before she was even one year old. Fudgie prefers to stay close to home and watch the boys hunt. Her favorite things are sleeping under a lean-to, playing soccer with spongy balls and representing our feline contingent as a greeter to visitors of our farm.
Hungry, cold and scared, Jimmy Buffet was found hiding under our hayloft on New Year’s Eve, 2012. Jimmy Buffet likes to hang outside of Freedom’s stall, go hunting with Charlie T during the day, and follow us around the barn when he knows that feeding time is approaching. Sometimes called “Buffet” for short, he has turned into a very social kitty in a very short time, and is now trained to come running for dinner when he hears the dinner bell in the evening.
