Ocracats

Update Oct. 12: Mae has a home with Jessica Shore, who has a lot of snuggling in her future, I predict!

Update Oct. 10: Hansel is adopted! Thanks to Jesse and Jason Hostetter for adding him to the pair of Ocracats they adopted earlier this summer! You will absolutely love him!

Update Oct. 9: Sealy and Serta have been adopted! Thank you to Joanna and Garret Burkett for adopting the 'twins'! Your organization for our clinic was awesome and so appreciated! Mr. Hansel and Miss Mae are still hoping to find their forever homes!

**UPDATE: WE CAN ARRANGE DELIVERY ANYWHERE BETWEEN DURHAM AND WASHINGTON, DC**

Our TNR clinic brought us kittens! We have four adorable kittens who are all about the same age and who are ALL ON THEIR WAY TO DURHAM for adoption through our foster mom, Ellen. Ellen will work with you on transporting from Durham to locations for families wanting to adopt an Ocrakitten but not able to travel to the island.
All of the kittens are sweet as can be and are lap ready! They have all had their first set of vaccinations, deworming and kitten flea treatment. Hansel (the grey/black swirl boy) has been with us for a few weeks. He was brought in before the clinic and is quite the little guy and loves to play and snuggle! He is the same age as the calico/tortie girl (Mae) who has a gorgeous orange splashed face. The other two kittens are black and white, brother and sister and they love each other! They like to sleep under their bed so their names are Sealy and Serta. Sealy (boy) has a black beard and Serta (girl) has a black beauty mark on her nose. They are soooo sweet and huggable! They curl up in your arms! Little Mae (calico orange face) just cuddles in your arms and settles right in!

Hansel- 10 weeks; black/grey swirl; male
Sealy- 10 weeks; black and white with a black beard; male
Serta- 10 weeks; black and white with beauty mark on nose; female
Mae- 10 weeks; gorgeous calico/tortie with an orange face; female

If you are interested in adopting any of our newest kittens, send us a message tagging Ellen Goldlust and she will respond and arrangements can be made to meet/adopt! Please make sure you have an adoption application sent in ( found on our website at www.ocracats.org) and we will get you registered for an adorable Ocrakitten!

We would like to thank Dr. Howard and Mariesa Johnson, their three children and Dr. Laura Trent for such an amazing TNR clinic this week! We were able to spay 24 and neuter 25 cats this time, and all did extremely well! And a special thank you to Joanna and Garrett Burkett for helping to arrange all aspects of the clinic with us! Our extra volunteers, Teresa and Monica did an awesome job at keeping the surgeries in order and rabies tags issued. Samantha Sutton and her two college friends were useful at so many tasks during those clinic days! Our volunteer Ellen was there for anything we needed and helped keep things running smoothly! Our thanks to the Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department for lending us an entire bay for the surgeries, admissions and recoveries of the kitties! It was a very busy few days and your donations allow us to pay the costs of such a clinic and WE THANK YOU! ... See MoreSee Less

We are very sad to say that we lost our little Piddlepot last evening, October 1. Her passing was on her own time, with much love, comfort and holding hands guiding her to the Rainbow Bridge. She was embraced by love from the Universe and left us with peaceful ease and we are so grateful for this gift of our little Angel Baby. All of you helped us to give her this peace and we are forever thankful. ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’– ... See MoreSee Less

Another awesome community support for Ocracats! The Ocracoke Library's Summer Reading Program worked hard to make special Kitten Kits for the Ocrakittens! They included homemade blankets, (thank you Leslie M.!) handmade toys, wonderful notes from the kids and food! The children delivered some to those with new kittens, and brought the rest over to our remaining Ocrakittens. What a special surprise and how cool they are! Thank you Sundae Horn for all your help and thank you kids!! And another special thank you to Daisy O'Neal, who made her mermaid artwork and gave her earnings to Ocracats!

Among our sorrows this week we have great joy, too! We have two adorable, loving, cuddly little ones who are looking for their forever homes! Hansel is a grey/black stripe male and Elizabeth is a black and white female. Elizabeth came from the Ocracoke Fish House, saved by Patty and Elizabeth! They are both so loving and playful. Both are right at the 9-10 week mark, Hansel has had both sets of kitten vaccinations and Elizabeth has had her first round. Both are extremely healthy and so ready for a home! Pictures show them making themselves at home at Dr.Trent's so they are ready for loving laps!! And they love pillows!
If you are interested in adopting a kitten please fill out our adoption application and send it back in and we'll get you registered for an Ocrakitten! www.ocracats.org

Sept. 23 Update: Our little Piddlepot was taken to Roanoke Animal Hospital today for her ultrasound and a list of further tests. We were hoping for better news. Piddlepot's liver is not functioning and she is absorbing few/no nutrients. Her gastrointestinal tract has major issues, possibly lymphoma. It also appears to have been punctured at some point in her life, possibly happened at the birth time. We are taking the advice of the Drs. and treating her as they recommend. What saddens our hearts is that Piddlepot doesn't have much time left in her little life. You wouldn't know it by her sweetness, but her body is saying something else. She will continue to be kept in a loving, caring home, receiving appropriate treatment to relieve her of discomfort and all the hugs and snuggles she can stand. We thank all of you more than we can express. What your donations have done is allow us to complete the testings and imaging needed to know how to help this little one. And Piddlepot thanks you, too. ... See MoreSee Less

I am so sorry. But at least you know you have done everything possible for her. She has had a much better life with love rather than struggling on her own. Thank you for all you do and the love you give. โค๏ธ

Our ocra kitty sushi sends well wishes adopted in August And doing great

I’m sorry for the bad news but glad she will be loved for whatever time she has left.

I’m so sorry ๐Ÿ˜ž. To give love and ask nothing in return is the greatest gift of all. Bless all of you for loving this sweet little one.

I am so sad and sorry… so glad she has you to love and care for her…

This breaks my heart, I was so hoping for better news. May piddlepot’s remaining days be filled with love and peace.

Thank you for loving this little one!

Im so sorry to hear this. I always wish we could save them all. ๐Ÿ˜”

I’m absolutely heartbroken for you all about poor Piddlepot. Thank you for taking care of her and ensuring her days on earth are filled with abundant love and kindness. I know that she was meant to be with you all because you would take her in and give her unconditional love and support. Thank you for doing what you do and I know you try so hard to save them all but please know my thoughts and prayers are with you when they pass away and join all those who have gone before them to a beautiful place filled with their favorite toys, food and most importantly their favorite people. I’m sure one day you will all see her again and she’ll coming bounding over to get love and pets and she will let you know how happy she is to see you again. ๐Ÿ’•

I know y’all do your best to save them all, so noble. Your efforts do not go unnoticed!!!

Prayers for sweet Piddlepot๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™โค

Update: She is heading to RIAC for her ultrasound! Misinformation was followed by good information, so fingers crossed! Thank you to EVERYONE for your ideas and advice. We so appreciate it!

Sept.22.: Ocracats has a special request...a great need: We need a veterinarian to do an ultrasound on one of our nine month old kitten's abdomen. We are in dire need of this but cannot afford the expense and really don't know where to go for it. Our veterinarians here on the Outer Banks don't have ultrasound equipment. Do any of you know where we can get this done? We would of course prefer a location we can get to in a day's time and back from Ocracoke. Ideas? Thank you so much!

**weโ€™ve added a donation button to this post; all donations will be used to help this little one, with any extra used to provide medical care for other Ocracats**

Made our donation to the Ocracats in honor of our old friend Thurston. 3 years ago tomorrow we were married on Ocracoke Island and Thurston was sweet enough to take this picture with me.

Just sent a bit to help in honor of this lovely orange dude we met at the Flying Melon some years back. Thank you for the good things you are doing for these darlings.

NC State has an excellent veterinarian program. Being a teaching school, maybe there could be a price break, too.

Coastal Animal Hospital has an ultrasound๐Ÿ‘. Start a donation page for the kitty and I am sure many of us will be willing to helpโค๏ธ. My husband is a veterinarian and would be willing to help but we are in Richmond , VA. www.coastalanimalhospital.com/outer-banks-veterinarian.html

I just looked at the vet I would use when needed, Dr. Jay Taylor in Kitty Hawk. He advertises for a vet in Chesapeake for after hours or more intense needs called BluePearl Pet Hospital. Hope that helps๐ŸคŽ

Sent a donation to help with expense. Not a lot but I know every dollar counts. U guys do an amazing job caring g for these sweet beautiful cats / kittens.

Sound Cat in Wilmington they are the best

I asked a rescue here in Washington NC and she said contact Pamlico Vets. 2 hour ferry ride then a 1 hour drive to Washington..

There is a 24 hour vet emergency clinic in Wilson NC also.

Roanoke Island Animal Clinic is probably the closest to you with ultrasound.

Try my Vet! Piedmont, Dr.Grover, Simmons, or Bayhart! Keene V.A. in it for animals not money!

Sound Cat in Wilmington. She is a fabulous veterinarian. It is an all cat practice. Her prices for what she does are very reasonable.

The COVE in Suffolk Va is a 24 hour emergency vet clinic and has a sonographer on staff, or at least on call.

I believe Roanoke Island Animal Clinic does ultrasounds have you checked with them?

Austin Veterinary in Beaufort??

Donated. Thank you for your kindness toward animals. ๐Ÿ’œ

Does Austin Vet in Beaufort have the ability?

Where is RIAC? Please let is know how she is.

Donated. Thank you for all you do! ๐Ÿ˜ฝPlease keep us posted on this baby.

Wanda Deal Williams Do you know of a vet out around the East Coast that can do this?

How is she?

Arendell animal hospital in Morehead city

Points East Veterinary Specialty Hospital east in Wilson may be able to help!! 2529916560 might need a referral, can ask Dr Trent to send them one. Forms are on the website for points east. I can always take the kitten with me one time when I leave and bring it back when I come back to the island! Since I stay over in Wilson when I’m working this side of the ferry!

I believe Pamlico Animal Hospital in Washington, NC has an ultrasound and they are rescue friendly. Firetower Animal Clinic in Greenville, NC can do ultrasounds as well. For Firetower, the last time I had one done, it was around $300 but they may offer a discount for rescues. Animal Hospital of Pitt County may have one as well. I've heard they are rescue friendly. Located in Greenville.

Nothing in greenville?

I love them all , but Calico's are my favorite. Mary is beautiful. If I did not have a 17 year old spoiled Calico, I would drive down there and scoop her up!!

It is official we are coming before October…is the calico still available?

You guys are my reoccurring monthly donation since got Banx last year. Love your work on the island. Does the grey and white have home yet?

Callan also has several for adoption. Want them?

Did Gretel get adopted?

What beautiful babies. I love them all!

Be still my heart โค๏ธ Mary is gorgeous and so are the others โค๏ธโค๏ธ

I recommend getting 2. They play together and keep each other company.

Nic Odom look at Hansel's little kibbins face...

So we’re down 3 weeks in Frisco again this fall, but I will be heading back home in the middle for a few days so my son doesn’t get too lonely. You know I’m always ready to drive cats north! This time there will be two trips north, one around 10/26-28, the 2nd 11/7. Always glad to bring passengers ๐Ÿ˜ป

Ocracats we are available to take one of available immediately

Sweet babies!

Dalton James Kinyoun

I want them all!

Robert J McClaskey…..before you leave, I’m going to need you to go a bit further south and pick up someone for me ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜ป

You’re breaking my heart. You know I’ve adopted in November the last two years. Hubby says no more. House is too small for the 3 we have. So I will donate instead. And see what happens in November ๐Ÿˆ‍โฌ›๐Ÿˆ

Can’t wait to see them! We may have to make a quick trip down before October!

Still hoping for one come Nov.

Wow! Ocracats would like to thank EVERYONE for their Amazon Smile donations! From April 1 to June 30, Ocracats earned $455.43 in donations from your purchases! Wow! That amount of money will purchase over 30 bags of dry food for our Ocracats. That's a lot of food! We use over 75 bags of dry Purina Cat Chow each month, plus the canned food for the elderly and for medicine times. This $455.43 is a huge help and we all thank you!๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ ... See MoreSee Less

That’s awesome! You should post on the Ocracoke sites that tourists follow. I bet if you posted a few times during the summer months with specific foods, etc. with drop off points you’d get a lot of donations. I find that people are more willing to donate goods over $. Just a thought.

My husband thinks I definitely do our part ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ. You should get a bump this next quarter or whatever as we are adopting two kittens up here in Pittsburgh and I think I might have spoiled them just a little bit. My husband said I need to save something to buy them for Christmas and I told him you do know Halloween comes first, right? ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ I’m very glad we can select you for our Smile charity. Thanks for all you do!!!

Do you have a location for people to see the Ocracats available for adoption?

We are very happy we can help with Amazon Smile for Ocracats. We miss you and all the little monsters.

Wally Butter Beanbag thanks you for caring for his cat family.

Thank you for sharing about Amazon Smiles! I did not know about this awesome program, but just signed up through my Amazon account and selected Ocracats! We hope to get a yellow tabby from y’all one day

Good to hear!

Forever homes are needed! These four (3-month old) kittens have done beautifully and they all want forever homes to run and play and snuggle with their families! Two tabby girls and two black boys. They are becoming snuggle kittens with a zest for play time! They are eager to explore their surroundings and are craving human attention. They love it. And they love toes. ๐Ÿ™‚ Our space for fostering here is limited and we ask if you have a place in your home to adopt one of our lovelies, please let us know!

Ocracats has 4 special kittens for adoption! We are grateful to the National Park Service for allowing us to assist in recovering a momma cat and her 6 kittens from the NPS campground. All of them are doing well! Momma is spayed, has had all her vaccinations and is enjoying a foster home. The 6 kittens are at the 3 month age. Two of the kittens are adopted by their (once) foster mom, Lola! We have the 4 remaining kittens who have been with us for two weeks and are doing GREAT in adjusting to indoor life! There are two black males and two striped tabby females. They love to play and have people time! Three have had the first vaccinations, deworming. and kitten flea treatment. The largest girlie just had her flea treatment. Her vaccs are scheduled. They use the litter boxes, eat canned and dry kitten food, and they just love to play- chase toys, strings...lots of campground activities! They are also becoming more and more lap kittens. This is a new experience for them, but they are becoming marshmallows quickly ๐Ÿ™‚ They are not lap kittens yet, but will be with the gentle hands and playtime families can provide. No hissing, biting or rough play from 3 of them. One will hiss if she doesn't know you yet but she is adjusting and will be a sweetie. She loves her belly to be rubbed. They are very sweet, just learning 'people ways'. All 4 need loving homes! We had several calls from campers concerned about these kittens and momma cat (who would ADORE an inside forever home- she is SO sweet!) and so here they are! Safe and sound, healthy ( negative tests for feline leuk / hiv on two done so far- we expect all neg) and so ready to play, run, and have forever homes! Thank you for the teamwork Julia and NPS!
Adoption applications are found on our website, so if you have a loving home for our camper kitties, let us know and we'll get you registered! www.ocracats.org

There is a mama and two kittens on Dean Ave in Rodanthe that could use a rescue. They’re right next door to the house I stayed in a few weeks ago. Someone comes by and feeds the other strays (that are TNR’d) but these ones could use a rescue.

These kittens are just beautiful! So much enjoyed being part of this story, what an adventure too!

Most beautiful cats on the planet...im honored to be the concierge/owner of 11 of them

I want a cat please

My group bought four yesterday. We love the little kitty that has been around our rental this week.

When will t shirts be available for shipping? I would really like to replace the one I have because it no longer fits me.

I would also buy several but need shipping.

Pic pls! Would love to purchase it and have it shipped!!

Yes, photos please.

I'd also love to see and inquire for shipping so I won't have to wait a year or 2 to pick mine up!

I now own 5 Ocracats T-shirts, including Blackbeard's Cat! The next time we are on Island, I will buy more!

UPDATE: All are adopted! Thank you everyone! We have three 'special' kittens who will be posted in a day or two who all need forever homes.....we'll be updating!


Only 3 kittens left for adoption!
Update #2: Both tinies ( 6 weeks) are adopted together!
Update: grey adopted!

We have absolutely adorable, loving kittens available! Here they are! We have
two tinies, about 6 weeks old, one boy ( gorgeous black/grey stripes) and a girlie ( beautiful tortie with awesome markings),

and then three 7-8 week olds one black and white male (we think), one beautiful striped swirly grey/black boy and one really fluffy, long haired grey with tan markings here and there ( we think a boy, but not sure)

and finally we have a gorgeous 6 week old tabby tortie mix who has lovely brown highlights with fluffy back hair and outstanding markings! They are all litter trained, eating dry and canned kitten food and LOVE to play!

If you are interested in adopting an Ocrakitten, please find our adoption application on our website , send it in and we'll get you registered and on the list! www.ocracats.org

So bright eyed and curious looking. I bet they are so sweet.

A bunch of cuties! โค๐Ÿ™ For loving families.

I think I held both of those little cuties!

Love the Black and white

Love our little Ocrakittens!

So which kitties are still available for adoption?

Why are 6 week old kittens being put up for adoption? Conventional wisdom is that kittens/puppies need to stay with their mothers until at least 8 weeks of age.

We have our two little ones posted below who are sweet as can be and ready for adoption , then....

Four more kittens are now available! So we have 6 kittens up for adoption! These were brought in this past week and are doing great. They are getting used to people and love to play! At this point, we think they are all boys!
There are three from a litter that is just at 6 weeks old ( the two black and whites and the striped tabby in their pic), and one little fella is a week or so older ( the fuzzy striped tabby by himself in the pic). All have had their first set of kitten vaccinations, deworming and are eating canned and dry kitten food and using the litter box. If you are interested in adopting an Ocrakitten, please fill out our adoption application at www.ocracats.org and we'll get you signed up!

These two little munchkins are available along with the two black and white kittens and our grey striped little boy pictured below!

We are so grateful that our 'older' (9-10 week) kittens have found their future homes and are waiting for their families to arrive! This week has brought in 7 new kittens, two of which are pictured here. The rest of the kittens' pics are coming.

Our first two are at the 5 week age:
Here we have one beautiful tortie girl who loves to cuddle and play! One of her pics has her flipping her tail playing on the kitten bed. The other little darling is a gorgeous black/grey striped swirled boy , who also loves to cuddle and play! They are both eating canned and dry kitten chow, using the litter box and just love to snuggle and be with people! Both are healthy and ready to go to forever homes! The kittens were ready to play and didn't want to sit still for pictures!
If you are interested, fill out an application at www.ocracats.org and we'll get you registered for an Ocrakitten!
