Adoption times may be delayed due to limited veterinary availability for spays and neuters.

We, and all of our kitties, appreciate your understanding and patience.

The Foster Kitten Project


Saving Kittens One Bottle At A Time

The Foster Kitten Project specializes in orphaned and abandoned neonatal kittens, defined as newborns up until four weeks of age.

Many shelters are unable to take in these kittens due to their intensive round the clock care, because of this; they are one of the largest groups euthanized in the United States every year.

The Foster Kitten Project rescues these kittens and gives them a fighting chance at life.

We are FKP's Most 'un'Wanted

The below cats have been with The Foster Kitten Project for more than six months without even one adoption application.


They are healthy, loving, and purrfect but can be a little shy, meaning they need someone patient enough to allow their personalities to come to life. We promise they are worth it.


"Will you adopt us or share our profiles on social media?"

My mother, brothers, and I were born in captivity of a good samaritan. The plan was to get mom spayed, but she was trapped pregnant before they could get her altered. After about three weeks of age, the good samaritan wanted to ensure we would get the care we needed to be adopted and found FKP.

Brandon plays hard and loves hard! He comes when you call him and will run to you, wagging his tail. He will be the first to greet you at the door and demand to be picked up. His favorite sleeping spot is by your legs or in your arms.

Adopt Brandon

I was found abandoned at the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo in a construction area. The rescue group that found me called FKP because I was only three weeks old and needed more one-on-one care than they could provide. Luckily FKP had a nursing mom that took me in to be a part of her family.

Stefan purrs 24/7 and loves everyone he meets. He loves to attack his brothers and play with balls and hair scrunchies. He also loves to come in close for kisses and then run away to play.

Adopt Stefan

Hi, I’m Douglas and I’m a sweetheart. I will investigate things with a little caution; I’m not super scared or shy but not as outgoing as others. I like people, and will walk up to you on my travels around the house and stop by for cuddles and lots of purring. I also love to play with toys, especially the feather on the string and stick and the little mice that I can carry and bat around to pounce on.

Of course you can often find me wrestling with littermates and other kittens – it never gets old to have a buddy to roughhouse with (then nap in a pile). I’m pretty calm and will purr loudly when you pet me. I can’t resist toys, so I will forget to be aloof when it’s time to play. I’m pretty quiet and my meow is very quiet.

I get along great with other kittens and adult cats; I’m good with kids and rub up against the dog here at the foster house. If you are looking for a nice, calm kitten who is curious and loaded with purrs, I’m your guy!

Adopt Douglas

Hi, I’m Donna and I am a calm and reserved girl; Denise and Douglas are my littermates. I’m a beauty, buff tabby with deep orange eyes and soft fur. I have come a long way in a few months; I used to be really scared and just ran away from humans. Now I don’t run; I stay and get some petting and that revs up my PURRS.

Meeting strangers would be hard for me, I would need some time to warm up to you. Of course, I am very sweet and gentle, and not so quick to run up to you and get in your business. Food is a big motivator for me; I will come running when you open a can of food or something smells good (and I will be purring)!

I love toys, just like all kittens, and love to play with humans and kittens. I can be found sleeping on the cat tree by the window, on the floor sleeping in the sun, or just hanging on the couch. There is a dog here that I don’t love, but don’t mind, as well as other adult cats and several kittens. I am more of a solitary kitty, and like to observe and take it all in. But I am always ready for wrestling with my littermates and love to sleep in kitty piles with them of course. When I get to my forever home, where I can get accustomed to surroundings, I will really bloom.

Adopt Donna

Hi, I’m Denise, and I am a nice, sweet girl; Donna and Douglas are my littermates. I am a beauty, stunning light gray tabby with white stripes. I have subtle patches of light orange here and there, I am really pretty. I’ve come a long way in a few months; I used to be a little skittish and stayed a brief distance away from humans. Now I wander around, hang out, get petted, purr, and move on.

Of course, I am very sweet and gentle, and not so quick to run up to you and get in your business. Food is an interest of mine; I show up when you open a can of food or something smells good!

I am calm explorer, going everywhere, not in a hurry, checking things out, then pick a spot to nap. But I am also ready for wrestling with my littermates and love to sleep in kitty piles with them of course.

Adopt Denise

A good samaritan saved me from a hoarding situation. While my good samaritan was looking for a rescue for me, I gave birth to 3 babies. Eventually, the good samaritan found FKP and took us all in.

We don't know when my birthday is, but we celebrate it 5/26/2020. I'm pretty shy and misunderstood. I may hiss when I first meet you, but if you sit and give me time, I warm up. I spent most of a year in a closet out of fear, so I really need someone who will try and understand me and get to know me.

Adopt Mrs. H

I was brought into a local shelter that partners with FKP. I came in with 4 babies of my own and added 2 more to my family while I entered into FKP's care. Sadly two of my babies passed away soon after entering foster care.

I have not been around dogs in foster care. I am good with kids and will let them carry me around. I can be hot and cold with other cats. Sometimes I want to be the boss. I like my space, but I prefer kids over adults.

We do recommend applying for adoption before meeting our kittens. If after meeting you believe you have met your new family member, you would be able to take them home the same day.

Adoption is dependent upon approved application. If you are a pet owner, all pets must be current on all maintenance veterinary care and altered. (This includes core vaccines, and heartworm testing and prevention for dogs) If you have a pet that has been deceased for 2 years we will also need to verify that pet was current on all medical care or as recommended by your veterinarian at the time of their passing.

Due to limited resources for local vetting, adoptions may be delayed until after kittens are altered. Wait times may vary until age appropriate vetting can be performed prior to adoption.
