Unfortunately, due to limited space and funds, Terry cannot take in all the kitties that need help. We apologize for this, and Terry feels very badly about having to turn down any kitty in need, but she is always willing to answer questions and help in other ways if she can.

Please consider  making a donation to help the rescued kitties. All donations go directly into FURR’s PayPal account, and 100% of all donations (after PayPal fees, if any) are used for testing, spay & neuter, vaccinations, other necessary vet work, and cat food for the rescued kitties.

Wouldn’t you love this kitty curled up on your lap?

    Thanks for your time this afternoon speaking with me. I am a true cat lover and Sharon’s and my selection will be a very loved cat. She will be an inside cat, and will live in a life of luxury.

    Looking forward to meeting you and you husband and freinds.

    It was great talking to you last night at the hockey game. I really admire all that you are doing for the kitties. Your website is awesome. I will talk to my sister about adopting. Keep up the great work.

    I need some help/advice. My daughter’s catsitter suggested to her that I contact you for advice. I have been feeding a colony of cats residing in my back yard for just over two years now. I am not able to trap and get them to the spay/neuter clinic. Basically all I do is feed them and make sure they have water. I would like to do more for them but can’t afford to. Some are definitely feral cats but there are several that are friendly – whether they are strays or someone’s outside cat. At any rate my reason for contacting you today is that there is big tom – I call him Bubba. He is a very friendly kitty. He used to come by occasionally although now he comes by usually morning and night and eats and at other times I see him curled up somewhere in my yard. A few weeks ago I noticed that Bubba had patches of skin showing, some bloody and I just assumed he had gotten into a cat fight – since it’s that time of year. He has been getting more and more “beat up looking” however and now I am concerned that it’s not war wounds but that he has mange. I’ve got to do something about this – since I don’t want him to be sick or hurt and I also don’t want the other cats to get it. If I can get him into a carrier – do you know of a vet that would treat him at a discount? I could take him to my vet – and will if I have to – but it will be several weeks before I can afford to do so. Or – do you know of any medicine I could get to use for him in the meantime? I did some research on line and most everything I saw was something to mix with shampoo. That is not an option either.
    I’m sorry to be rambling on. I’m afraid I’m a little frantic from worrying about him. Any advice you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    help! someone dropped off a very little kitten (eyes still blue) in my driveway. I have 3 grown cats. I was able to pick him up once but he scratched me up before I dropped him. I have just trapped him inside my dog crate when he was eating with my other cats. He is so wild, I am unable to handle him and want to take him to get checked, shots, etc. so he can’t contaminate my other 3 cats that I have had for over 10 years. How can I get him to the vet and outside of this crate without being torn up-any suggestions?

    Our twin daughters’ “donation” birthday party was a big success. Their friends enjoyed choosing donations for the kitties and hopefully these young girls will begin to understand the importance of giving to others. We collected lots of great stuff from the Wish List and are excited to have a tour of the cat shelter.

    Hi Terry. I live in Iredell county and have a feral cat colony living in the woods behind my house. There is no longer a feral cat society in Iredell county. I am doing what I can to take care of them, [I provide food and shelters, catch neuter and release when I can afford to[and when I can catch them] There isnt any help here. I have been thinking of trying to start something . There are so many abandoned pets in our area, and they are multiplying faster than my husband and I can keep up with.Can you give me some hints as to how to start up a feral cat rescue? I have taken in as many as I can afford to, and I’m doing what I can, but Im afraid the neighbors are going to start poisoning and shooting them if I don’t do something soon[they are already training their pit bulls to hunt and kill them. If you can give me some advice, I would sure appreciate it[I just found a new litter a week or so agao! 5 more babies !!![bringing the colony to a total of 17]

    I found three stray tuxedo kittens in my yard. My German Shepard wants to eat them! She was chasing “something” in the yard every night a few days before new years eve.
    The kittens can not stay in my yard and we are all allergic to cats. Where can I take them?

    Hello Ms Terry!

    I — more correctly the 3 (5 month old?) kittens I have — need your help. I’ve been trying to find them homes but haven’t had any luck at all. My Mom says we need to get rid of them before the little boy starts spraying but I don’t want to take them to the shelter, since they are good babies that need a forever home and loving family. I wish I could keep them but between how little an income I bring in and my mom’s worsening allergies, we can’t.

    Hi Terry,
    I live in Waxhaw and was wondering if you could help me find homes for 2 adult cats. They are my mother’s and due to her rapidly declining health, they are in need of new homes. One is a 15 year old female tabby who is a great companion cat for one person. The other is a 5 year old male blk/white long-haired and playful and full of spunk. My husband, kids and I are allergic to cats and it triggers asthma in my daughter. If you can help or have any suggestions, I would be most grateful.

    PS they are neutered and up-to-date on shots, exams.

    Hi Terry,
    I too am a cat lover. I have three that are my babies that regularly perch on the window ledges. Since they are visible to people passing by, someone apparently thought I’d be willing to take another, as there was a knock on my door, and this kitty was just scuttling out of a box and attempting to run away. She is large and can’t move very fast. She is black and white, declawed and very sweet – but she is very shy and scared. I’ve kept her in my apartment for a few days, but I just purchased a very small house (480SF!) and I just can’t keep this kitty with my other three (who have not been kind to her) in such a small space. She appears to be healthy and I believe she is spayed, but I am willing to take her to my vet and have her checked out, shots, etc – but I need to find a loving home for her ASAP. I am located in York County SC, but I’ll drive within reason if necessary. Thank you!
