This young, little girl's name is Susie, she had three kittens last year , all of whom were adopted into wonderful homes ( two on Ocracoke!). She hangs out with at least 12 other lovely kitties, each having a distinct personality. Thanks to our fall 2018 TNR clinic, she will have an easier summer this year, with no kittens tagging behind! they are well taken care of and enjoy their days by 'the pond'.
Some people love cats, and some people don't. Well, that's what they think anyway, but as you can see from this adorable list compiled by Bored Panda, resisting the furry feline charm is a lot more difficult than you'd imagine.
My grandpa was one of these. He said he didn't like cats and didn't want them around him. (He was very upset I'd gotten three cats.)
One day I hear this kinda high pitched voice calling a cat. I go into the living room and catch my grandpa sitting on the couch and holding a piece of chicken out to one of my torties. She accepts the chicken and jumps in his lap.
Every day after that 'his baby' would hang out on his chair or in his lap. After that baby was gone (she passed away young) he quickly took some of my other cats (I had since gotten more) and declared them his babies. Spoilt rotten little things.

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 !
Home, sweet home! The boys are adopted and both together in their new, awesome home! Thank you, Halle! Thank you, Desiree, for adopting little Bearcat! All three are now safe and happy in new homes ❤️🐱 ...
We would like to thank my friends Linda and Gary Painter, who have been long time donators and supporters of Ocracats😻 Their rental is listed on the Blue Heron site and just look closely to what they have offered! A huge thanks to Linda and Gary. We love you😻 ...

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