Kitty City and Cats’ Cove are home to a group of 16 permanent resident cats. These cats are large adults that are mostly unadoptable due to behavior problems such as unreliable litter box usages and demanding outside time. FFRC strives to ensure cats are kept indoors, which is why all our adoptable cats go to homes where they will be kept indoors at all times. Cats that are raised indoors only are perfectly happy staying indoors, but cats that are raised with outdoor access are often not content with remaining inside. We believe that the quality of life and happiness of our cats is of the utmost importance, so rather than turn away cats that refuse to remain indoors we have the compromise of the KC/CC structures. In the summer the cats are given access to the farmyard for 5-6 hours a few days a week weather permitting. How do we get them to come back inside, you wonder? That’s where we feed them, of course! They are known as The Covies.
Kitty City is the winter home of this group of cats. It is a building located just behind the main rescue building, and is completely enclosed. Inside the cats have heat lamps to bask under, heated beds to lounge on, and plenty of cat trees and catwalks to play on and explore.

Cats’ Cove is this troop’s summer home. It is actually 2 buildings connected by a fenced in walkway. The sides of the structures are open slats to allow plenty of air and light in, and the larger of the 2 buildings has a very high ceiling , with catwalks and ledges all the way up.
