The ONLINE T-shirt sales have ended. If you are on the island, we have a few 2XL blue and a few small and XL natural left. Please do NOT submit a T-shirt order online at this time. Thank you for the awesome support of T-shirt sales this year! We'll post when more shirts are available and when our Rescue calendars, note cards and Thurston stickers will go on sale. ...
LARRY IS AVAILABLE: You might remember we posted our Larry, a 5 month Ocrakitten brought in during the spay/neuter clinic who was looking for his forever home. Larry is being fostered in Durham, at our volunteer, Ellen's home. We had a lovely family who wanted to adopt Larry, but alas, after a trial run, the family dog did NOT like Larry and so it was not a good situation. Larry is already a lap cat and according to Ellen, "the most chill cat ever!". He is fine with dogs and other cats (the dog didn't like Larry). He LOVES to be held and petted. Serious lap cat!!
If you live near the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area or can travel there, please message Ellen Goldlust here on FB and we will get Larry his perfect home! He is THE cat for someone who wants a loving, purring, so laid back cat! Ellen took Larry to Durham to help us reduce our kitten foster numbers here on the island since it's getting late in the season. A Sunday afternoon drive to Durham.....sound good? ...
Beverly B Bowen?

Well, color us purple! Our island wide litter pick up last Sunday brought in more than trash! Three more kittens were brought in, healthy and happy! They are very playful, eating canned and dry kitten food, use the litter box and are approx. 5 weeks old. All the previous kittens posted have been adopted, so these are the only three we have available. First time posted! Introducing the Squashes, #3, 4 & 5
Acorn- female gorgeous fuzzy tortie with acorn colored swirls and a whitish chin
Carnival - female ( so far); coloring is a beautiful mix
Spaghetti- orange male
All three kittens are incredibly playful, healthy, and have had their first set of vaccinations and deworming. They are young but they are ready to be adopted. All are eating well and take themselves into their bed for their naptime when they're ready! All are used to a well behaved dog, and lots of other adult cats!
If you can give one of these adorable Ocrakittens a forever home, please visit our website and fill out an adoption application and we'll get you registered! It's easy! www.ocracats.org Thank you! ...
They're so beautiful! <3
They are adorable. They will bless someone
Are you trying to tell me Candy Corn needs a little sister??
Oh my gosh, that last picture - what a princess right there! 💕💕
Oh you’re KILLING MEEEEE!!! 😍😍
Oh no we were just on Ocracoke last week!!!! 😭😭 Bad timing.
These babies are so gorgeous! Very unique coloring. I just love orange tabbies.💕
Wish I was headed down sooner!!
They are all adorable. Wish I had room, but i have 5 babies that I am trying to find a fur ever home for.
STOP!!!!! I wish I could have them all😻😻😻
I wish Ohio wasn't so far away 😔
Well thinking there will be room in the car on 11/7 to bring more along to drop off on the way home...so those of you between Frisco and Baltimore metro area - don’t let lack of transport stop you from saying YES. 😻
Beautiful little kittens 😊😻
What beautiful kittens!!
They are “The Three Little Kittens!” They’re adorable!!
Awww they are SO precious!!😻❤️
I want one!!!! So cute!!!!
Gustavo can we please get one 😭
Brittany oh my goodness
UPDATE Oct. 16: Candy Corn has been adopted! Thank you, Alice!
This is the last little female we have for adoption. Little Candy Corn, sweet as a button and loves to play! She has gorgeous markings, with a perfect line down her belly and her face has a perfect split with beautiful orange highlights. She is right at the 9-10 week age, both her other siblings were brought in weeks ago and are already adopted. We brought in Candy Corn during the spay/neuter clinic. She is too young for spaying. She's had both sets of kitten vaccinations, deworming, flea treatment and is very healthy! ...
She is so pretty. She looks my tortoise shell kitty Miss Maple. Hopefully someone adopts this precious girl soon. They have the best attitudes.
She is BEAUTIFUL! If we didn't already have 4 rescues (and live 10 hours away) I would grab her up in a heartbeat!
Congratulations little girl! You are beautiful! Great job Ocracats!
She is gorgeous and what a cute name 💕
She looks just like our Morgan!!!! Possibly interested!
Looks like my sweet Dora.
She has the most perfect little face!
Torties are amazing cats!!
Cute name and precious kitty!
She looks like my Berkley! They could be sisters 🙂
Beautiful fur baby!🐾
She is beautiful!
Candy perfect for you.
Shared to my Torti group...
Ricky Vega we can make a trip...
Ivoree Smith omg a cutie 🥺💕
She reminds me so much of Rose.
Allison Green look familiar? Lol
OCT. 19 UPDATE: BUTTERNUT SQUASH ( TOP PIC) HAS BEEN ADOPTED! and if we can find transport to PA., Pumpkin will have a family, too!
And two more....Squash and Pumpkin, 5 weeks old, so playful and outgoing, these puff balls use the litter box, eat canned kitten and dry kitten food and are very healthy! If you are able to give any of our kittens a forever home, please visit our website for an application! ...
OMG, they are so ADORABLE. They won't last long.
Oh my. They are adorable. I am sure that someone will scoop them up quickly.
They are sooo cute!! I’m guessing they are both boys?
So this may seem like a stupid question, but I was looking at your adoption application...what is a companion animal?
Love Gingers. Have two now.
So cute. Love gingers!!!
Such beautiful babies❤️
I hope they get adopted together <3
We may be headed to the OBX in a few weeks from MD. Would be more than happy to offer rides to furry hitchhikers heading to new homes on the way home. Think we’re looking at 1st or 2nd week in November.
So are there 6 babies total available right now?
Awe, so adorable
Little Pumpkin in the bottom photo looks so skinny but he's not! He's a rambunctious little fella who is all over the place and loves to play and wrestle with brother Squash 🙂
Boys or Girls?
Oh my god Kristin Kirk

UPDATE OCT. 16: The orange and white male, Jack, is adopted! Thank you, Chris and Bill!
UPDATE OCT.15: The two tabby siblings are adopted! Thank you, Donna!
Well, sometimes we might say something that we must adjust....this is one of those times. Our spay/neuter clinic week rounded up more Ocrakittens! Yes, we have more kittens! If you are interested in adopting an Ocrakitten, please visit our website and fill out our adoption application. It's quick and easy!
The tabby boy ( 8 weeks) is extremely playful and loving ( pic #1, 2), and his sister ( 8 weeks) has gorgeous orange markings mixed with her grey stripes ( pic # 3); our orange and white boy (10 weeks) is very calm and sweet, a bit shy still as he has lived in a scary place until now and is learning that all is well. There is another all black kitten, 10 weeks, ( no pic yet) who we are working intently with, as she was quite scared when we brought her in last week. She is proving to be very sweet and very eager to let down her guard. She'll be purring in our hands soon! ...
They are adorable 😍 Our Ocrakittens are doing great in NJ! Fig and Shelly (formerly Snow White and Missy Lou)
I adopted 2 last month. They are so sweet. Jinx & Slinky
I'm open to adoption if we can figure out transportation. I live 4 hours away in Kinston.
You make it so hard. If I had room I’d take 2 more. Maybe one day These are beautiful. By the way our solid black one is the shyest if the two snd more of a hunter and hider than the other one.
I wish I could. I have my hands full with the 4.
They are all adorable little kitty's, l would love to have one !!! 🐺💜
I wish I could bring home all the kitties I see that I want (I actually want all kitties that I see 😂) But I can’t. These 3 are gorgeous
I can’t adopt but happy to foster if needed!
One day..... I'm full at 7 right now, but one day......
If I lived closer, I would defintely adopt one of these kitties! I love kitties!!!!
I might be in trouble when we visit next summer. May need to bring one home with us. 💕
I'm right there with Maureen. I may have to bring a cat carrier on vacation the next time I'm there.
They’re all so beautiful!
Karly Lindsay Beck
Oh my gooosshhhh I want one so bad!
Angela Keech Hudnell if you want a cat please adopt from them!
They are all beautiful ❤️
Jordan Suzanne adorable little boy
Sarah Shriver, road trip? 🤷♀️😍
We like to help out other kittens besides our Ocrakittens who need a home. These three are on the Outer Banks and will be headed to the Outer Banks SPCA if they don't get adopted soon! If you are on the Outer Banks, or nearby, and want a gorgeous kitten, please message Elaine Hooper. They are at the Hatteras Island Pet Resort. ...
T-shirt Update: The only sizes /colors we have left are XL in natural and XXL in blue. We apologize for any inconvenience if you've recently placed your order for other sizes. At this time, we are not sure when we are reordering...Thank you for your continued support! ...
If you ever have a Long Sleeve t-shirt made up, I will definitely buy more. Right now I have 4 of the short sleeve ones, plus a short sleeve Blackbeard's Cat t-shirt (5 in all)!
I could use a long sleeve t-shirt (just saying)
Where can we pick up. I’ll be on ocracoke today.
UPDATE; Larry is adopted! Thank you Laura Prestwood! You're awesome!
Okay, folks in the Raleigh/Durham area or surroundings.....
'Larry' is helping to navigate his way to Durham, with his foster mom, Ellen! Larry is available for adoption immediately! He is the SWEETEST little 4 1/2 month boy and is so ready for his forever home! He was brought in from the marsh area during our spay/neuter clinic this past week. He loves to lay in your lap and snuggle and purrs and purrs. He is eager to go explore and has been introduced to a dog and is very familiar with cats! He uses the litter box with no problem. He has had his first round of vaccinations, his rabies, deworming, flea treatment and is neutered! If you are interested in giving Larry his much wanted family, please tag Ellen Goldlust here. Then, make sure you have an adoption application on file with us. You can find this on our website at www.ocracats.org It's quick and easy! This little boy is a GEM. Seriously, an absolute gem! He has black stripes on his face and his body is a grey & black swirl pattern all over. ...
It was amazing to work with you guys again!
I’m so excited. He’s going to be a great companion!
For safety sake, I hope he is in a carrier when the car is on the road, just in case there's an accident.
Love the picture!!! Hope he finds his forever home soon. 😻
What a great picture! I’m sure Larry will get a wonderful home soon.
Now the roads have cleared, for a time, keep me in mind for any girls needing a home!
Ellen Goldlust. I would love to give Larry a home!
Did Larry even make it off the ferry before he found a home?
What a great picture! I'm glad he found his forever home 🏡 💓
Wish i were closer

We have a foster home in Durham!! This gorgeous 4 month kitten, yes, he's a kitten! is now going to Durham to be fostered at Ocracat volunteer, Ellen's, house. He is already a noodle! If anyone would like to adopt our little clinic boy, please contact Ocracats and we will get the process started! Email us at email@example.com or send us a FB message. He was just too sweet to release back into the marsh. Adoption applications can be found on our website at www.ocracats.org. He is a gem! ...
I admire your dedication to the Ocracats ! Thank you for all you do. ❤🐱
This is a gorgeous 4 1/2 month old male. He wouldn't let me catch him earlier 🙁 If someone is willing to spend a little time with him, he would be a wonderful inside pet! He lets me full body pet him while eating, but I haven't tried to pick him up . With lots of playtime, food, and sweet talking, he would be a noodle in your arms.....
My sweet Ocracat Bialy gets spayed in a couple weeks.

UPDATE: Tabby orange girl is adopted! Two kittens left!
Your chance to adopt an Ocrakitten is wrapping up for the 2020 season... (whew! thank goodness! 🥰 ). Here are 3 of the last 4 kittens we have for adoption. One kitten, the all black male, is approx.7-8 weeks old and the two little girls (one is a striped tabby with shades of orange and peach and one is a calico showing mostly black with light tan markings on top and her belly and legs show the orange and white patches) are approx. 5-6 weeks old. All are healthy, rambunctious, eating kitten food, litter box trained, and are little love bugs! All 3 are ready for their forever homes and a soft lap to snuggle in on long winter nights. If you are interested in adopting an Ocrakitten, visit our website and fill out an application. It's easy! The calico has tan eye rings and gorgeous markings and the grey & peach striped tabby is just a beautiful kitten with lovely shadings. We hope the colorings show up okay.. ...
I love my Ocracat and he loves me! Best decision of 2020!
This is Sprinkles The black cat. we adopted him and his brother Cinnamon the striped cat last November after Dorian. They are the sweetest kitties ever.
Aww, I wish i could take these little babies home. Pray they go to good families.
So cute! Are they related to mine? She’s from northern pond area

We understand that some of you have not received T-shirts that were shipped weeks ago. Unfortunately, the USPS is very slow right now, and we have no control over that. Please be patient, and if you haven't received your shirts by the beginning of September, let us know and we will try to track and/or resend.😿 ...
No worries. It took mail 4 days to get a letter to me from 3 zip codes away. I figure fro you to me should take a month.
The shirts are well worth the wait👍
Got mine today! Love it!!😻😻😻😻😻
Priority mail is the only thing moving at any pace
Just received a small package, totally unrelated here, an Ebook reader, from up north 350 miles away, usually takes just 2 days, 3 days max, took 7 days, Monday to Monday, US PO. Very slow moving through shipping points. It just sat. This just started a few weeks ago, got a notice, Florida, date of the delivery, bumped by one extra day. There is something rotten in Denmark? The king is to blame?
UPDATE: Two of these kittens are adopted! The all black male and one of the tabby stripe females. Only 4 kittens left! One black male, one tabby stripe & white male, and two females- one tabby & white and the other is a calico ( mostly black with white and tan dots here and there)
Amid our sorrow, we have NEW LIFE! Our mission must continue.
Six kittens were brought in the day we lost Thurston. All are available for adoption in two weeks. They are approximately 5 weeks old and a couple are not quite off the bottle yet but are transitioning. All are healthy, sweet, playful and ready to be loved by their families! If you are interested in adopting one of these kittens, please go to our website and use the Adopt link to fill out our adoption application. We'll get you registered for an Ocrakitten! There are three black ( one isn't pictured yet) and three tabby kittens, each have slightly different colorings and markings.We are not sure of the genders yet, except one of the black kittens is male. www.ocracats.org ...
Will y’all be open on September 7th? We’ll be leaving for vacation that day and would be able to adopt a kitten and take it home with us (pretty sure it wouldn’t be allowed in our hotel) if I am accepted to adopt? ❤️
hope you got our package we dropped off at Tradewinds last week when we were there. Blankets, toys, a couple of pet beds. <3
Could you please show a photo or two of the other kittens?
Love you, girl❤️
I hope & pray all of these sweet babies are adopted in Thurston's honor.🙏🙏
Such sweet innocent babies! May they all get good and loving homes. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
They are so adorable and friendly.
Awesome! Will there be a Thurston, Jr?
Aw, what precious little babies❤️
You need a new lighthouse kitty.
The circle of life. ❤️❤️
Beautiful fur babies.
Awww sweet babies
Melissa Presnell Henderson you can get an Ocracat while you are there
