Thank you to everyone donating food to Ocracats this time of year! We can surely use the food help and we have hungry and sometimes, chilly kitties to keep fed and warm! We have our Amazon and Chewy wish lists, but for general reference, we always need Purina Cat Chow ( blue bag), shreds and meaty bits canned food ( we use Friskies) and Lysine powder. If there is a choice of shipping addresses, please use Ocracats 338 British Cemetery Rd. Ocracoke, NC 27960 Thank you so much! ( Walmart has good prices too)
The Ocracats did okay during this past cold spell. We have straw in all their shelters and some have heated pads! Water bowls were all frozen solid but luckily, no kitties were! ... See MoreSee Less

Here is Ocracats Chewy wish list www.chewy.com/g/ocracats_b64328427
Here is Ocracats Amazon wish list: www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2YZELKDDBIRG2
I just sent y'all two of the 20lb blue bags of Purina Cat Chow. It should be there between Monday and Wednesday next week. Love the Ocracats. My husband and I have spent several nice vacations with the kitties - one ran in the house and slept in the bed once. ha ha!
We got a couple of those heating pads for our two outdoor cats. They chose to be outside by the way. They have every opportunity to come inside at night and will have it no other way but to be outdoors. They love those heating pads!! I’m not talking about our Ocracats lol. They stay inside at ALL times! Keep up the amazing things you guys do and all the sacrifices you make for those wonderful cats and kittens!!!! Okie and Chi Chi send you warm regards!!!
Any chance you’re able to link your Amazon and Chewy wishlists?
Just placed an Amazon order for some Friskies 🙂
I saw a Facebook post earlier that someone had purchased a crockpot at a thrift store and the picture showed their chickens drinking around it. I would never have thought of that! Of course it needs to be plugged in so access to electricity would be needed!
4 - 20lb dry (Purina Cat Chow blue bag) 4 - cases of wet bits (chicken dinner and gourmet grill) 1 - round of Churu (chicken variety pack) 3 to 6 business days. Update: FedEx tracking states Feb 7th.
As much joy as the Ocracats bring to us, there is always sorrow...
We lost Patience, a sweet feral cat, today to cancer. He lived a very good life with a couple of siblings behind Tradewinds Tackle for a decade. He always waited patiently for his dinner in the same spot daily- which is how the name came about- and gave head bumps to all the other ferals in greeting. He will truly be missed by his siblings, friends and the staff at the shop. Thank you, Melinda, for taking such good care of Patience and the crew at Tradewinds. Rest in sweet peace, sweet Patience. May the kitty angels be giving you hugs and snuggles💖💖 ... See MoreSee Less

So sad at the loss of Patience. I've always loved and enjoyed meeting the Ocracats, over the many many years of visits to your island. Patience has already met up with friends in kitty heaven....🥰🤗🐈
I am so very saddened to learn of Patience’s passing and my condolences to all who cared for him. I already know he lived his best possible life with you all caring for him. He has joined so many that have gone before and I’m sure he’s head bumping his way around getting caught up with old friends and meeting new ones. The passings are so very difficult and it’s often hard to navigate but I truly believe he couldn’t have had a better lifetime than the one he had with so many people loving him and caring for him. ❤️🐾
So sorry. Whenever I’m at Ocracoke I love on every cat I see. Thank you everyone for sharing your love to all these amazing cats.
Condolences on the loss of Patience.❤️He looks like a great cat who lived a good life behind Tradewinds. Thank you for taking care of him all these years, Melinda. RIP Patience.
Rest in peace 🌈 lil one! May the other kitties in heaven guide him💕
I met him this past summer late one night! He let me pet him on the head and then sauntered off to the bushes.
I am so sorry for your loss. It is so difficult to say goodbye regardless of the circumstances. Thank you for making his life better and his passing more peaceful.
I'm so very sorry. Thank you for all you do. You truly are a blessing to these cats. <3
May he rest in peace. 🙏
I loved him! 😿
So sorry for everyone’s loss. 💝
I’m so sorry. RIP Patience!
I always hate hearing of the loss of an Ocracat. They are a special crew, and Patience was a special boy. RIP, buddy.
So sorry Rita Thiel . Three of ours have three different kinds of cancer. It's so heartbreaking. Thank you for loving ❤️ all the cats.

Ohhhh!!! So sorry to hear this. 🥲. I got to feed him a couple of weeks ago and he was such a sweetie. Hugs to you Melinda 💖
Martin Luther King Day and his honor of service was brought to Ocracats on Monday by Ocracat volunteers Mari and her mom, Drena, who scrubbed the Ocracats trailer clean! It is now squeaky clean with no green!! In addition, they took on the task of feeding lots and lots of kitties today! Thank you for your service, Mari and Drena! ... See MoreSee Less
