Urgent Alert for Ballantyne kitties!!

March 4, 2011

ACTION ALERT

Dear Friends,

I want to alert you to a serious situation. The management of Post Ballantyne Apartment homes in Charlotte wants to dispose of 15 feral cats residing in the woods on the property.

Management alerted the caregiver (Stuart) to immediately stop feeding the cats. They had called a company that would trap and take the kitties away. FURR investigated the company and found out that they take stray dogs and cats to Animal Control where they are euthanized!

I was appalled to hear of this! I knew that FURR needed to step in and escalate the situation to the owners of the apartment complex. After serious negotiation, the owners and management agreed to allow the cats to remain on one condition – every single cat must be trapped and spayed/neutered within the next several weeks.

This means we don’t have much time!

Dedicated FURR volunteers have already stepped into action to trap the remaining unaltered 10 cats. Once they are spay/neutered, the cats will be returned to their familiar territory. Stuart, care giver at the apartment complex, will continue to monitor them daily providing food and shelter. FURR has been helping Stuart and the Post Ballantyne cats for over a year now but had to stop due to lack of funds.

Here’s where I desperately need your help. A donation of $100 will

help cover the cost to spay or neuter a cat. Can you help?

We are a registered 501 (c) 3 who has been working in the Charlotte region for the past several years offering a non-lethal solution to many homeless and feral cats.

Waxhaw, NC 28173

Or if you prefer to donate thru PayPal, please visit FURR’s website at http://www.catfurr.com. Simply click on the “Donate” button right at the top of page and notate: Post Ballantyne kitties. Your donation is tax deductible.

Won’t you help us make a better life for cats in our community? FURR is an all-volunteer organization and relies on donations alone. Every dollar you give will go straight to helping these cats! Together we can make a difference.

    I only wish I could foster some kittens. I know my female cat would love them but my HUGE male just does not like to have anyone or anything around HIS person, including my much smaller female! Please keep me on the list, I just wish I could have donated more that $100. Richard

    I recently met Terry at a petsmart event, I liked a little orange kitty , and Terry invited me to her cat lodge to see her without all the noise and commotion. My husband, daughter and I went out a few weeks ago to see the little orange kitty. Terry has an amazing. Barn that she has converted to house and care for these kitties. Here were four rooms with glass doors, we visited the first room with the orange kitty and her friends, when we cam out of that room we noticed a beautiful black kitty tapping at the door across from us. We went thru rooms 2 and 3 and each time the black a kitty was at the door tapping. Serum we finally got to him he ran right up to Our daughter and threw himself at her purring the whole time . He did the same to me and then noticed my husband wasn’t paying attention to him and circled him purring . Needless to say sir purr picked us and with help from Terry and her staff has become a happy addition to our home .Terry has been helpful with the adjustment into our home and his vet care. we have recommend her to friends, foxy we hope you have a. Good home.
