Feral cats are especially vulnerable when a natural disaster — like Hurricane Earl — strikes. The wind and rain can be brutal for cats without shelter.

There are two North Carolina organizations who look after ferals in their respective areas and were hard hit by Hurricane Earl. Here’s more info about them, and addresses to which you can send donations:

Feline Hope Animal Shelter, Inc.

Feline Hope Animal Shelter, Inc. is a non-profit, no-kill, all volunteer organization dedicated to providing food, medical care and loving homes for homeless cats and kittens.

Ocracats

Frequent visitors to North Carolina’s Ocracoke Island may have noticed the large feral cat population living there. It is believed that the cats probably arrived with the island ponies… as survivors of the many shipwrecks that have occurred off the NC Outer Banks since colonial times.

Many islanders and business owners care for the cats by providing food, water and veterinary care, often with help from the non-profit Ocracats organization. A recent spike in births has threatened to empty the Ocracat coffers. We must aggressively neuter and spay the feral colonies to control breeding and keep them healthy. Donations to Ocracats will be gratefully received if you can help.
