Fun Fact: A house cat could beat superstar runner Usain Bolt in the 200 meter dash.
We are an all-volunteer, foster-based group founded in 2013.
FFAR is dedicated to rescuing unwanted cats and dogs in the North Texas area, primarily from Collin County Animal Shelter, and finding them permanent, loving homes through our foster and adoption program. We have rescued and adopted out over 3,500 cats and dogs.
We also help animals from other organizations if we have room in our foster homes
Her foster mom says ... This is Willa. The shelter had vetted her and she'd gotten sick which is super common. She had come as a single stray and had been thrown in together with another single stray her own age. Both got the same stuff and Truffles sneezed a few times and that was that (she was adopted quite a while ago).
Willa, on the other hand, became severely ill. She lost half her weight and was teeny to begin with. She was literally a skeleton and stopped eating. For two weeks I force fed her and did fluids, but she had severe diarrhea Miraculously as that was clearing up and she began eating on her own, the virus moved to her eyes. Simultaneously she caught ringworm and went almost entirely bald. I could pull her hair out in giant clumps and her entire body glowed. On two occasions, when I went to bed, she was in the death pose and I thought she'd be gone when I woke up, but she made it each time. Her eyes got gradually worse and finally we had to remove one of them. She has minimal vision in her remaining eye but she is now playing and eating and follows us all over the house, only occasionally running into a wall. She is a super sweet kitten with a super loud purr motor. No clue why this virus hit her so hard and no one else, but that happens."
