Society has abandoned many of its feline residents. They seek safety and shelter here at Carolscatz .Presently we care for 130 felines in various locations. All have been trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, ear tipped on the left ear, and colonized. Many live here on site in kennels. and without us doing what we do, their life would end, most likely thru trapping and euthanization  at an animal shelter facility. People do not understand the differences between feral, stray, abandoned house cats. Education is key to understanding these animals. You can help them more by being educated on how to be a good caregiver.

September 2020

Many are left behind by caregivers when they move, die, or   no longer are able to care and feed for them. Many will die of starvation, sickness,  or be killed by predators including humans. They will forage in peoples trash for food, seek shelter under porches and cars. Many will be trapped and relocated by neighbors , to be abandoned to perish at the hands of nature. TNVR,( trap neuter vaccinate return,) is the most humane way to manage population control for these animals.  1 mating pair of felines, with their subsequent offspring ,can reproduce over 7 years 420,000 felines. 

Many will not survive . over populating  causes health issues due to in breeding, feline aids ,feline leukemia, with compromised immune systems. Since 2013 Carolscatz has tnvr"d more then 3000 cats and kittens.

We do what we can with the resources we have available

Many of our resident felines are seniors,  disables, or have some issue  which declares them un adoptable according to todays society  when adopting , people want the perfect cat or kitten, and usually  pass over the handicapped. One such kitten residing here, is "frankie" a siamese kitten that is paraplegic.  check back in October for Frankies story. Donations are  needed badly to help us ,help them.
