Urgent Alert for Ballantyne kitties!!

March 4, 2011 2 comments


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.

Please send your donation today to:

F.U.R.R. (Feline Urgent Rescue and Rehabilitation)

PO Box 1164

Waxhaw, NC 28173

Or if you prefer to donate thru PayPal, please visit FURR’s website at 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.

Monday night football was anything but ordinary at Waxhaw’s Southsiders’ Deli and Pub!  Folks came to the Bears vs Packers game and every one was in good spirits!  All were decked out in their favorite team’s attire including Bear’s jerseys and Packer’s cheese hats!  Besides the usual wonderful eats, drinks and fun atmosphere at Southsiders this past Monday night, there was another wonderful thing happening!  Southsiders’ owners, Mark and Patty, had been selling raffle tickets to FURR.

Mark offered two Bear’s hoodies (his and hers) during the game’s half time and sold $1 raffle tickets for weeks ahead of the event night!  Terry Schultz, FURR’s founder and Executive Director, frequents Southsiders and actually calls it the FURR headquarters for their business luncheons!  Getting to know Mark and Patty was a real treat not to mention the wonderful cuisine which is why FURR started going there!

Mark contacted Terry once about a little tiny black kitten running around outside the restaurant.  Terry was out of town but promptly sent over one of her faithful volunteers, Muffie Baer, who whisked up the little kitty and got it to  safety!  FURR has since adopted out “Wrigley” to a wonderful  new home and there sits a fine example of how the community can work together to save the world; one kitty at a time…….as FURR likes to put it!

Mark, Patty, Mike, Muffy, Brad and Terry

FURR is extremely grateful to Mark, Patty and the Southsiders’ staff for hosting this fund raising event for FURR!  The hoodies were given out at half time and the money given to FURR was in excess of $200, which is not too bad for selling raffle tickets for only $1!!!  THANK YOU SOUTHSIDERS!

Yard sale was a success!!
