Kindness is alive and thriving on Ocracoke! Monday afternoon, eight students from Ocracoke School's afterschool program's Kindness Club delivered jars of homemade cat treats for the Ocracats! What a terrific group of eight young people, grades two through five! The children and their teacher, Ms. Molly O'Rourke, found a Youtube video on how to make cat treats and used either tuna or salmon mixed with oatmeal flour ( they ground themselves), eggs and olive oil then baked to perfection! They then gave us their best 'act like a cat' pose! The treats are loved by the Ocracats and they all say a Meowful Thank You!! ...

Not long after Hurricane Dorian struck, folks starting picking up the pieces and finding new ways to help out. One lucky recipient of this change was Spencer—the adorable mascot of Spencer’s Market. She’s been a wee bit spoiled and is now living her best life INDOORS! Chances are she ll remain an indoor kitty for her golden years — pretty sure she’s enjoying every minute of it. ...

Ocracats

To say that Ocracats has had an unpredictable year would be an understatement. As we contemplate and reflect on all that has occurred within and outside of our organization in 2019, we are left with a myriad of feelings. The beginning months of the year were filled with colony feedings and maintaining our healthy populations.
February brought a $1000.00 award from the Outer Banks Community Foundation for a video submitted in a contest held for previous grant recipients. This,supplemented with your additional donations kept the food flowing for the kitties.
What a surprising Spring and early Summer we had! Kittens and more kittens! Ocracats brought in a 'record' 35 kittens this year and all were adopted to wonderful families. Seven of these were post-Dorian. Your donations and support allowed us to be able to care for these kittens and secure them all safe and loving homes. We are more than grateful for all the adoptive families and those who have expressed an interest. These kittens were saved from the wrath of Hurricane Dorian.
We were gifted with a spectacular original charcoal sketch, 'Scooter', by East Coast artist Bruce Tarkington which will be raffled this spring! Tickets are still available...check out our FB page!
September 6, 2019 will be a day never forgotten. As the seven foot surge inundated the island, residents and animals alike sought higher ground. Considering the force and level of the water that suddenly covered the island, we are amazed that any Ocracat survived. But they did. and with a determination that is a lesson for all of us. Old friends eventually returned to their feeding areas. new friends have shown up. We lost many. Last estimates were at 150+ throughout the village. Feeding areas were devastated- wiped out and away so the familiar places for our colonies were gone. Enter our angels in disguise: OBAH S&R and ADRC.
Just a few days after the storm, volunteers with the Organization to Bring Animals Home Search & Rescue and the Animal Disaster Relief Coalition came to Ocracoke ( all on their own!) and reconstructed many of our destroyed feeding areas. They built us 10 new feeding stations ( all are placed and well used by the colonies), brought us food and medical supplies, and helped to treat island cats, dogs, and pelicans while they were here. These people, along with all of you , who through your donations of food, supplies, shelters, blankets, beds and so much more,have kept us going and given us the sense of hope we have needed all these months.
The checks you send us buy food. We're feeding 25-30+ bags of Purina dry each month for our colonies. Our elderly, ill, and young cats are able to have more appropriate canned food when needed, thanks to your donations. You make this possible. Your Facebook donations have totaled over $8000.00 and you have responded to our pleas for help with such generosity and compassion it can bring us to tears. We are still recovering. Cats are still displaced and showing up in strange places.
We received a grant from The Greater Good Foundation for $3000.00 in response to Hurricane Dorian's damage. This enables us to secure food, medicines and shelters during these winter months. It will also allow us to get ready for another kitten season! Eagle Scouts are bringing us 5 new feeding stations, a project started in response to our need after the storm. This type of generosity has occurred over and over and our gratitude is immeasurable.
Our September TNR clinic had to be cancelled, due to Dorian, and we are looking forward to having Dr. Johnson and his awesome crew here in the spring for an early clinic.
Along with the good wishes for the cats, you have sent your prayers to us, the humans behind the scenes, and we thank you! Most of the Ocracat volunteers are still rebuilding their homes and businesses. It has been a tumultuous end of the season, that's for sure!
The love and support all of you have shown Ocracats is a beacon that shines brightly for us as we move into 2020. We have much to look forward to as we await kittens, a new retail space and an on-line store!
Thank you, we love you , and Happiest of New Years to all of you and your furry friends! Much love, Rita-Ocracats v.p.
