Ocracats

Ocracats Year-end Roundup!

Sometimes I am stunned by the amount of support, care, generosity and love bestowed upon Ocracats, (a nonproft that relies solely on donations to care for the feral cats on Ocracoke Island). Our year end financial report shows that our island feral kitties are beloved way beyond the fragile borders of this little island. And we send a humble and hearty thank-you to all who have contributed so generously to Ocracats.

Social media has definitely brought us to a broader audience and kept us in the minds and hearts of those lucky folks who get to visit our island paradise. When we have posted for help, whether it be for kitten adoption, soft food for the elderly ferals, clinic costs or just to join the contest fun in locating Blackbeard’s cat, the outpouring always brings us more than we ever could have hoped for. We are incredibly grateful for all the cash dropped into our donation jars, donation checks sent, bags of food brought to us from visitors and all the tees, cards and calendars purchased in support of our mission. I cannot find enough words to thank you properly.

Who can resist adorable kitty photos? We seem to be always championing some important cause, and kittens are often at the top of that list. This year, our best estimate is that we have found forever homes for close to 20 kittens (that includes re-homing at least 2 adult kitties.). I am happy to report that our last batch who arrived in the fall are now adopted. Although kitten adoption is not our primary mission, these young ones fall into our care regularly. If you want to be on a list of folks to be contacted when kittens need homes, please sign up for our kitten adoption registry on our website.
www.ocracats.org

And for those of us who live here and respond 24/7 with volunteer time, emotional energy, problem-solving skills, and rise to whatever occasion calls, you make Ocracats the special safe harbor we have become for the island feral kitties. So I’m in appreciation for what we, again and always, have accomplished this year.

A special thanks to our mobile veterinarian, Laura Trent who always gives way more than just standard medical care. We love you !

On behalf of Ocracats,

Got my shiirt yesterday & have it on. Thank you ladies for the great job.

My kitties wouldn't cooperate but they are the reason we went with a tiny tree this year

Ashley, is Lola in the tree yet?

Brian Loratto

Okie loves chilling in his basket. He’s 2.5 now and lives a life of luxury in Stanley, NC. We brought him home from Ocracoke when he fit in the palm of my hand. Angie, the horse rental girl, bottle fed him and his siblings after mom was run over. ❤️❤️❤️

We are looking for forever homes for two approx. 5 month old male orange Ocracats. One is neutered, one not yet. They are both socialized to their feeder - love to be rubbed,petted and even picked up and put on a lap! They will need a few days and a quieter space to acclimate to a new family, but they are both 'purrers' and want to be with people. Where they are now is not a safe place- on the edge of a parking lot with busy traffic. They are very active and healthy. ...

Hey All, Where can I buy Ocracats notecards? I'm off the island, so would need to order them to be shipped. Thanks!! ...

Comment on Facebook

Hi Genie, Ocracat note cards are only sold on the island at Mermaid's folly at this time. Sorry! Rita-Ocracats

Genie, even thought we don't ship the note card, f you want them, I can get you a box and mail them to you. I have to ask the PO what postage will be. Rita-Ocracats The cards are $8.00 a box.
