Ocracats would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all who have sent monetary, food, or supply donations. We are so very grateful for all your kindness and generosity. We have been a bit overwhelmed here with work, the island still has a long, long way to go with clean up and recovery, but we are progressing. We apologize for our delay in acknowledging your donations and getting proper thank you notices or cards to you. Your donations have helped hundreds of cats (Yes, we have that many Ocracats even though we lost close to 150 from Hurricane Dorian) and we love them all!
A huge thank you to the MJ Torello family who donated two of the shelters from our Amazon Wish List ( pictured below). These are amazing shelters and these provided the only shelter to several cats during this last nor'easter. In many areas, they have few, if any, trees, houses, porches or decks to hide under anymore. Thank you, Torello family! Spencer loves the shelter!
We continue to need dry food, Purina Cat Chow Adult ( blue bag), canned food ( Friskies large cans, poultry or chicken), and more shelters for the winter. and outdoor heating pads for our elderly kitties. Shipping address is still 413 Back Rd. Ocracoke, N.C. 27960
THANK YOU!! ...
150 cats died??? I’ve seen where you can buy a styrofoam cooler and put it inside a plastic tote. Cut holes in both on the side for the cats to get inside the cooler. Add straw between the 2 and you have a well insulated cat house. Have you ever used those?
Glad you all are okay. Did you loose many cats ? Hugs to all & hope you have a nice Thanksgiving
That’s awesome. !
Amazon is out of stock on that particular shelter. Is there another that would work?
How do I find your wish list on Amazon?

We've found a home for her. Is anyone going up the beach on Sunday who could drop her off to Friends of Feline transport person?
This kitty has a place to go, has since October. I would have taken her off the island with me the last time I came to volunteer, but her owner was coming for a visit and wanted to say goodbye to her. I’m very confused right now
Beautiful kitty. I wish I lived closer so I could take you ♥️♥️♥️
what a sweet looking girl...I wish we were in our home, we could give her love.... we lost our sweet Norma Jean two weeks ago, and still have Delilah - Nami and Delilah look like twins... <3
I'm so happy you found her a home.
She's beautiful, praying she finds a good home ❤️
Sad she can't go with her mom.
Why can’t she go to Hawaii with her owner, just curious

'Spencer' is a special Ocracat who makes Spencer's Market ( at School Rd. and Hwy. 12) her home. However, due to the recent upheaval, she had to be relocated to our Ocracat Anna's house while the Market is being demoed and rebuilt. The noise, piles of rubble, lack of visitors (Spencer is a friendly kitty!), and general discord made life difficult for her, so Anna has brought her home until life returns to 'normal'. Spencer has special dietary needs, as she is an old Ocracat and has a sensitive stomach.😕 If you would like to help Spencer specifically, here are the special foods Ocracats needs for her. There is also a shipping address especially for Spencer. Thank you for helping us to help Spencer! ...
I was just informed that my first package was delivered on November 14 for Spencer and a second is on the way!
Should be on its way to Spencer. From chewy tomorrow.
I ordered from Chewy.com on 11-11. Website states still in transit- the Federal Express tracking number is 126221684142. Please let me know when you receive. Not sure how much of a delay delivery is to the island now😁
Martha and I sent Spenser some Wellness Gravies food and a bag of World's Best Cat Litter. He should get it this week. ❤️
Dry food and Gravies coming to Spencer from Chewy! 😊❤️🐾
4 lb bag on its way.
12 cans from amazon should be there Thursday😻
I have been tracking the package from Chewy, but it seems to be sitting in Heford, NC since Wednesday the 13th. I have no idea why it hasn't been delivered yet.
I am in love! He is so precious!! 😻😽 I love his markings. 😻❤️
OMG. HE is so gorgeous. Have u picked out a name yet
Little kitty feets..........❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
We love him!
I’m in love! He’s adorable!♥️♥️♥️I wish I was closer so I could help foster or adopt!♥️♥️♥️
He’s so stocky! Have you named him? I’d call him Ralph (because he looks like WreckIt Ralph ) 😃😃
When he grows up, he will look like Thomas.
And look at those feet! ❤
Kathryn Clark be his new mommy. Dolly and Baby ♥️
❤️ Can’t wait till next Saturday!!
UPDATE: Baby is ADOPTED!! Thank you Morgenstern Family! He will be on his way to his new home in Pa. next weekend! Thank you to all who inquired. Please send me an email so I can send you an adoption application for the next kitten who becomes available! email@example.com
Family Needed!! We have an approx 5 week old post-Dorian kitten! He was brought in this morning from the marsh. This little boy ( we think) is a little fur ball and looks very healthy. He is being fostered for Ocracats at a home in Buxton, as we have no homes available on Ocracoke at the moment for fostering. He will be ready for adoption in just a few days. If you are interested, please email Ocracats at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us here. His little sibling (all black) was brought in Wed. and adopted within a couple hours! Momma swam her way through a hurricane! He was checked by our vet and de-wormed, but is too young for anything else. No fleas when flea combed! ...
Cosmo is such a sweet little boy and safely at home in PA now (and obviously settling in very nicely!)
Madeline Gibbs Whitehead
If my house was big enough I would adopt them all. Love his little nose ❣️
He is a darling. I already have 8 or I, too, would adopt him. I hope she finds a most special forever home. ❤️
Oh how I wish my dog didn’t hate cat’s but he does so for the meantime I will continue to send food to your organization that cares for all these precious little souls♥️
This baby looks like my Taz that we lost to a bone infection this past spring. I'm crying just looking at him. Wish Ohio wasn't so far away. I always have room in my heart for another baby.
He is so precious! ❤️ I wish I could come get him but I am 12hrs away in South Jersey.
I would love to adopt him- sent you an email, too!!
I would love to give him a warm and loving home! I sent a email! 😊
I would love to have a cat from Ocracoke but don't know how I would get one to Cuba, Mo. Anyone coming this way?
I would love to take him, i’m in Ohio,anyone heading this way?
How do they get to their new homes? When someone adopts them? I'm just curious...
I just put my application in to adopt a kitten
I love orange cats! (Among others)
Omg soooo cute
That face will get a home pronto.
Jessica Whitehead - time for Topsail to mentor a hurricane rescue?
Great news. ❣️❣️
Wish we were closer. Too bad you can’t mail him to PA.
Lori Leigh! Don’t you think Rusty needs another playmate?
Beautiful baby ♥️♥️♥️♥️
Ocracats is he still available? We would love to adopt him.
What a beauty!!
Ocracats would like to welcome Heather Beebe to our family of volunteers! Heather will be assisting in any way she can, particularly with the feeding of our Ocracats! We welcome any volunteers willing to travel around the village making sure our kitties are fed and watered, have safe areas for shelter, and are staying healthy. Brief introductions and 'training' sets you up to be an Ocracat volunteer. Thank you, Heather! ...

Spencer update!: we’ve decided to bring her to our house while Spencer’s Market is being worked on. She wasn’t enjoying the constant commotion up there. She would like to “meow” a bit of thanks to whoever donated this blanket at the fire station. It makes a great bed!! #ocracats #ocracoke #ocracokeisland Ocracats ...
Awww....I am sure she is much more relaxed now 💜
Happy she has found a temporary home. I would visit her and give her treats daily and she was super affectionate. But you could tell stressed. She looks content now
Thank you! I love me some Spencer. She's a p-awsome hostess❤️
Such a beautiful girl. I hope she is doing okay. My crew LOVE soft blankets, so happy to see she has one. <3
UPDATE #2: The adoption isn't going to work out, so these two lovelies are still looking for their furrever home....does anyone have room in your heart and home for two sweet 5 month kittens??
.UPDATE!! THE TWO MUNCHKINS ARE ADOPTED, TOGETHER!! THANK YOU CHRIS EAGLE!!! It truly will be an awesome Thanksgiving!
These two so want to be part of your family! Potential Adoptive families.....Ocracats would like to bring in these two black, 4 1/2 month old kittens. They have lost their momma in the hurricane, and a sibling. Momma was lost before she could show them 'the ropes' so they hang all by themselves, not knowing where to go. Ocracats' situation right now is that we have no one able to foster these two on Ocracoke- so many of us are still displaced. We do have a foster lined up in Buxton. One will be a lap kitten in a matter of a day or so- very friendly, loves to be rubbed- the sibling is also friendly but a little more cautious still. They will need to be socialized ( played with, introduced to other cats, if possible) before being adopted. Is there anyone interested in adopting either or both? I have a foster home available in Buxton, so they can go there temporarily, but we'd like to get some adoption possibilities before I bring them in.....They are not tiny, but these pics make them look full grown, which they are not. They are still just 5 months old.... ...
These two won't take any time at all to be 'socialized' to a new family! The male is already friendly as can be. The other is just a tad more cautious, but won't be a problem! We would like to keep them together in fostering and adoption, if possible, but not an absolute necessity.
We and Chris are still working on it.....
Just checking to see if these 2 have been adopted.
I’m in Washington NC was looking into adopting a kitten are so. My only down fall is I have dogs that grew up with kitty’s but I don’t won’t the kitty scared of the dogs either. If they are use to dogs I would to adopt
Bless their hearts. Hope they find a home quick
I wish I could take them. They are beautiful.
What beautiful babies! I wish I were closer to you and I would take them!♥️♥️♥️
Prayers for them!! Hope someone can help🙏
Margie! I live far away but you could adopt them for me. ❤️❤️
Lots of info out there for whoever takes them youtu.be/ST8dlkNGT9I
In a heartbeat if I didn't live 10 hours away!
Try Friends of Felines on Hatteras.
Wish I could take them!!
I would LOVE to, but I'm 30 miles west of Charlotte and can't get out there right now.
It would be nice if they could stay together
Are they girls or boys?
Market them as "teacup panthers" and you'll get a better response.
There's you a black cat Kellie Bevino.
Mike Garrish please!
Dorian update! Our little Hurricane kitten, Dorian, has settled right in with his new sis, Lily.
Thank you all for your continued support of Ocracats! We continue with needs for dry and canned food and are so very appreciative of all that has been donated and sent! You all are awesome! We tell the kitties all about how wonderful you folks are! ...
OMG. He is gorgeous. This is so sweet ❣️❣️🐾🐾

❤️🐿If you follow the OcraCats page, you may remember back a few weeks ago, a teeny-tiny 4 day old gray kitten was found out near lifeguard beach. The amazing ladies of OcraCats gave this guy a second chance. When he was found, one gal joked that they’d better be sure he wasn’t a squirrel as he was all gray. The name stuck and we are happy to report that Squirrel was adopted by a local couple who have decided he needs to LIVE HIS BEST LIFE! He’s goes on scuds everyday, wears a harness and is even starting to drink coffee!😉. I’m guessing we ll see Squirrel and his people at the shop this summer! ...
I don’t know about the shop. Please tell me. And if we would like to provide a home on a boat for an Ocracat is that possible?
Yay Squirrel!!! I’m so happy for you and your mom and dad!!!♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
He is so cute!
I'm born and raised there but dont live there anymore...live in Chesapeake...who do I contact to adopt a cat
Aww he's adorable
Love it 😻
What a cute name!!!

I checked in my chewy order also. They are re shipping since I did not get a confirmation of delivery.
Sent 5 cases of large Friskies cans last week thru Chewy and should have been delivered Friday but have not gotten confirmation of arrival from FedEx. Hoping it's just a delay in the ferry schedule and the shipment will arrive Monday <3
Thank you- some goodies on the way from my kitties to yours. Thanks for all your incredible work
A few things headed your way from my kitties to yours I also sent some food from chewy that have not been confirmed as delivered. If I don’t receive confirmation this week I will check and see what the problem is Thanks again for all you do for the kitties on the island
Just wanted to give you an update on the food we sent, hopefully it gets there this time!!
Would you accept additional items from Amazon that are not specifically included in the list? Different toys, blankets, etc?
Sue Miller Statler
I guess I'm an idiot ..I searched the animal charity list TWICE I did not find Ocracats on their list any where
