Whether a cat
is a house cat, a feral, a stray, or abandond,
all of them deserve a chance at a happy
This is what
we are doing
to help homeless cats, in Hawaii,
and what we hope for the future.
plan on starting a cat sanctuary or cat rescue in
but one cat lead to another...
and another, then 4 more cats, 5 more cats,
We didn't look for these cats or "buy" them for our
they just showed up, or were found in places that
they couldn't stay...
We considered bringing these cats we found to the
"humane" society, but looking into what actually
happens there...for every cat you bring in, another
is going to be killed.... and for every cat (or
dog) you get somewhere else, another is going to be
Thousands upon thousands of cats (and dogs) are
unnecessarily "euthenized" (killed) every day by
"humane" societies and local shelters...!
So we knew we had to do something else...
We got involved with the Feline
a non profit group, that helps people establish TNR
Cat colonies on Maui, and helps get these cats
spayed and neutered, helping to end the cycle of
unwanted cats from being born in the wild, and
ending suffering these cats and kittens are forced
We are responsible for around 100 cats right
between our office colony and the sanctuary.
New ones show up once in awhile, some feral cats
and some cats that people just decided they didn't
want anymore, so they just drop in a parking lot!
Sometimes the cats are pregnant, meaning even more
Some of our gets get sick, or injured, and sadly we
deal with death too...
We get our cats spayed or neutered, asap.
We feed them, make sure they have fresh water.
We treat for fleas, ear mites, whatever comes our
way, including huge vet bills...
and try to make them as happy as we we possibly
Several of our cats are still feral, meaning
basically that we cannot pet them, and most likely,
never will, which is fine. They didn't ask to be
abandond by heartless people, or be born into a
life on the streets.... They have a right to live a
happy healthy life too...
But the majority of them are friendly, loving,
cats, that love attention from us,
Our official colony started at our office, but
extended into our home, a small condominium.
Whenever the cats were ill, needed extra care, or
for other reasons needed to be moved, we of course
brought them there. At one point the cats numbered
16 inside our home!
In 2008 we found some property in a more remote
part of Maui, and slowly have been making that into
a cat sanctuary.
We have moved all of the condo cats there, several
of our office cats, and several others from other
people and places too, and hope to make it into a
large no kill facility, for cats that otherwise
would be killed...
But we can't do it alone...
If you can, please consider donating, whether it's
money, food, flea meds, or even time.
Any amount helps!
Food alone drains our paycheck....
But we want to do more, and helped create
If you, or someone you know has the desire to help
more homeless cats, cats that otherwise will be
killed, by helping us build and develop a no kill
shelter, putting up fencing, securing funds or
grants for the future, please contact
