Friends of Roman Cats desires to help homeless cats and their caretakers with an emphasis in Italy and the United States. We pursue this goal through innovative programs, international cooperation and educational initiatives. We support spay-neuter programs and believe that the practice of Trap-Neuter-Return is the best and most humane way to help reduce homeless cat populations.

Thank you for visiting our site. We hope you will support us in our efforts to make the world a better place for the wonderful creatures that live among us.
