In Memory of S'mores

Our goal as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization is to rescue homeless and/or feral cats and prepare them for forever homes.

Founder & Executive Director, Terry Schultz, traps, tames and adopts out these cats and kittens to carefully screened loving homes.  All the cats are fully vetted, spayed, neutered and tested for feline aids and leukemia before adoption.  FURR depends solely on donations to fund its operations.

Please Help an Injured Kitty

February 22, 2010 3 comments

This lovely kitty is Spice Girl! She is the mom cat of Pepper, Parsley and Paprika (see them below).

Spice Girl is a feral kitty, and before she was rescued with her kittens she suffered an injury that has affected her ability to control her tail. At first glance, her tail looks fine but as you watch her move around you can see that her tail just hangs and she can’t wrap it around herself likes cats normally do. She can’t move her tail at all.

We are not sure how she sustained this injury, but the veterinarian says that there is no possibility of repairing the damage as it appears the tail had been broken and could have neurological damage, and so the tail needs to be amputated.

Chip In to Help pay for Spice Girl’s surgery

Or you can send a check to


PO Box 1164

Waxhaw, NC 28173

Spice Girl needs to have this operation whether she is re-released or tamed and adopted, because the tail could become infected and if she is re-released any number of other things could happen if her tail is just hanging behind her, and ultimately cause her to suffer and die. F.U.R.R. is running low on funds and is asking for your help to pay for Spice Girl’s surgery. The vet estimates the surgery will be about $300 and you can make a contribution on our donation page by clicking here: Feline Urgent Rescue & Rehab We really appreciate any help you can give to Spice Girl. She is already spayed, negative for FIV & FeLV, and her vaccinations are up to date.

Here are Spice Girl’s beautiful kittens…

Here is our very handsome Dewey…that’s right, like the famous Library Cat! I’m sure you can see the remarkable resemblance! However, rather than being rescued from a freezing cold book return bin, our Dewey was rescued as a tiny kitten scrounging for food and dodging cars in the parking lot of a fast food establishment! Dewey was adopted last year, and his mom, Sherri, has sent this beautiful photo of her baby to us! Many purrs to Sherri & Dewey!

Dewey & mom, Sherri!
