Meow! My name is Ferguson! I am a senior male DSH orange tiger tabby with white on my neck and nose. I was transferred from Fremont County back in 2017, and now I’m living life with my foster mom along with younger foster kitties. I am FIV+, and had some work fixing my inner eye…
Wild Blue Cats is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to saving the precious lives of cats and kittens who are abandoned, abused, neglected, displaced or surrendered, and to find them permanent homes or provide lifetime sanctuary or foster care. We also conduct Trap, Neuter, Release (TNR) ventures outside city limits while supporting TNR efforts inside city limits to the best of our capacity. 100% of the cats we help are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and, when not feral, microchipped.
We are committed to preventing and eliminating euthanasia of treatable and savable animals. We believe euthanasia is a last resort only for animals suffering severe injuries or illnesses which are causing extreme discomfort and poor quality of life for the animal.

Wild Blue Cats! is located in the Black Forest area of NE Colorado Springs, CO nestled in the woods where not only do our cats enjoy their beautiful habitat but so do our volunteers, adopters, and visitors.
Our main building consists of communal housing for mostly adult cats where each has an opportunity to coexist with other cats while they are waiting for loving homes. Also, our cats have access to outdoor time in roomy “catios” protected from the elements and predators. Some cats may stay with us to live out their lives but we consider every cat adoptable and work hard to find them the perfect home.
Wild Blue Cats! also has an extensive foster family network which primarily houses the kittens that are rescued and saved and come into our program. Our fosters help care for neonatal bottle fed kittens to older kittens, as well as pregnant mama cats or mama cats with kittens. Occasionally, a foster home will also become a final resting place for a cat who needs hospice care as its life here on earth comes to an end.
Maya’s Friends Wildheart Village is another component of Wild Blue Cats! Maya’s is a wonderful 100 foot by 200 foot outdoor, netted enclosure with a heated shed and lots of hiding spots for our shy, feral cats who we take in when releasing them is not a safe option for them. They have a wonderful life being cared for daily by loving volunteers. Some even become candidates for adoption depending on their stress level and adaptability.
2019 Future Plans for the Wild Blue Cats! grounds…..
We are currently raising funds for our “Critical Care Unit” for felines with extra special needs!
This new building will have a nursery where neonatal kittens can be cared for and pregnant or nursing mama cats, friendly or feral, can safely raise their babies until weaned. We will also have space for a few FeLV positive cats who need a little longer time to find loving homes due to their health concerns. Finally, the building will have a much needed bathroom for volunteers, a laundry room for our rescue, and an area for storage of supplies such as food, litter and medical.
Donate today to help us build the Wild Blue Cats! “Critical Care Unit”.
