Simon from Clayton, NC. He’s had a hard year—bad cat fight injuries—but is doing just fine and learning how to be an indoor kitty.
Ashley, is Lola in the tree yet?
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. ...

UPDATE: We have received an incredible response to Ocracats canned food drive. We have several individual and monthly shipments of canned food coming and those, along with the donations that have been sent, will keep the elderly Ocracats well fed through the winter. If you are considering donating canned food in the future, we would like to ask that you hold off until January to send it. We are astonished at the generosity that is being shown.THANK YOU!!
CANNED FOOD DRIVE FOR ELDERLY OCRACATS 🐱🐈 Ocracats is in need of Friskies canned food donations for our senior kitties. Many cats are now of the age where canned food is a necessity. We will have a donation box during the Pirate Jamboree, Oct. 26 & 27 at the Ocracats table. Please, no seafood flavors, if possible. Canned food donations can also be sent to: Melinda Sutton, Tradewinds Tackle 1094 Irvin Garrish Hwy., Ocracoke, N.C. 27960. Deliveries are received year-round at Tradewinds. Thank you for your help! ...
You'll be receiving six cases of food soon. I got a bit click happy setting up an autoship to you for every 10 weeks and doubled the first order. After this you'll be getting three cases every 10 weeks to help you get through the winter and early spring. LOL I hope it helps!
Wow if people did that for the elderly it would be something or help them with their property taxes!!
You guys are all so wonderful- this was yesterday’s delivery and the first delivery was distributed out!
Our two Ocrakitties just turned five! Will send you a donation to celebrate their birthday now :-) - use however needed!
Two cases and a bag of hard food on its way. Please post when you start to need kitten food so that can be sent too! My Ocrakitties are two of the best cats I've ever had. 3-1/2 years old and loving life!
Folks, if you want to help Ocracats all year, you can designate them as your not-for-profit recipiant via Amazon Smile. Ocracats will receive a small percentage of every purchase you make on Amazon.
You should be receiving 2 cases of wet food and a bag of kitten food by Friday!! We will also bring some when we come down in a couple of weeks!!! We love the OCRACATS!!!🐱😻😽😺

They are gorgeous! I just love a newborn kitten!

Sasha Karacharov Bogdanich
Oh my goodness! If I hadn't already gotten my little orange fellow....
I am interested. 😺 I will be on the island (back and forth) from Oct 19 - 28. I would love to take one home. Our rental home does not allow pets, so I could not pick up before the 28th. I could return for one if they won't be ready by then (only live a couple of counties away). --Filling out the form. Have always wanted an orange Ocracat.
Just beautiful. Wish i could adopt one. I would love to have an Ocractcat. Hopefully, one day.
Ocracats would like to thank everyone who helped make our 2018 spay neuter clinic another successful event, especially our wonderful Vets, Howard and Scott along with Vet Tech JoJo and all their family members who pitched in to make this clinic not only possible but a warm hearted and caring experience for all involved - kitties and humans! All the volunteers who helped - big thank you as well!
Ocracats also has immense gratitude and appreciation for the Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Dept who annually allow us to share their facility with the felines. You folks are the best!
Although numbers need a second count, it looks like 49 kitties were fixed this week including some very hard to catch older ones. The trappers worked hard as always.
If anyone who brought a feral or pet has a cat carrier belonging to Ocracats, please drop off on the porch of Lightship Realty on Lighthouse Rd.
This photo shows Dr Howard Johnson in surgery. ...
Good people doing a good thing...this is awesome!
Howard Johnson and Joanna Yvette Coffey Burkett are 2 of my favorite people! Howard has been my veterinarian for 21 years!! Their compassion and love for animals is unmatched!! I’m so happy Howard has been able to help Ocracats for the past several years...such a blessing!
Howard and Joanna are the best!
Way to go guys!!!! So proud 😘😘😘
Go Dawgs! #athensproud
We usually average around 35-40 but offered free spay/neuter to pet owners also this year and that boosted the end count. Our local vet does not have the equipment or space for spays which means a
2 1/2 hot trip each way for locals to get their girl kitties fixed. Our local vet does male neuters on island.
Awesome people doing awesome things!!!
I’m so grateful for all the work of Ocracats! Thanks to all who made this happen.
So awesome! Thanks to you and your hubby!!! Wish I could have come down while you were there!!! ❤️❤️❤️
Was this a bigger year than other years? That sounds like a lot of cats. Wonderful to hear your efforts were a great success!
UPDATE: ADOPTED! BOTH TOGETHER! Thank you, Jenny! They will have an awesome home on Ocracoke! In search of a home for 2 kittens trapped during clinic trapping. Maybe 8 wks. old. Contact Ocracats at email@example.com or message us through our FB page. We have no place to hold or keep these kittens and they will have to be released if no home is found....they are tiny, appear very calm and tame, one orange, one black. If you are on the island on Thursday, Oct. 4 and are interested , please stop at the firehouse in the morning. Thank you! ...
I’m coming to get both tomorrow if they are still there...?
Mickey here!! I am so excited over this news😻
I was just setting my alarm so I would be there for 8am to see the kittens. You are a dream come true.❤️🙏🏻
This is the newest ocrakitten seeking a furever home. He is about 4 months old and craving connection and full of affection. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. Please share
