Aloha, my name is Renee’ Fulkerson and I am reaching out to you asking you would you be willing to support two sweet cats that got left behind – White Kitty and Orange Kitty find their forever homes? https://www.gofundme.com/two-sweet-cats-that-got-left-behind-need-your-help
In April 2018, a series of thunderstorms produced record-breaking rainfall on our island home of Kauai. The heaviest rainfall occurred on northern Kauaʻi where White Kitty, Orange Kitty and myself live. There, a rain gauge owned by the Waipā Foundation, just west of Hanalei, recorded 49.69 in (1,262 mm) of rainfall in the 24 hours between 12:45 p.m. on April 14 and 15.[nb 2] This was the greatest 24-hour rainfall total on record in the United States. The heavy rainfall produced flash flooding and landslides that covered roads and washed away several vacant houses. The floods damaged or destroyed 532 houses.
Needless to say many animals large and small lost their lives and in this case these to sweet innocent cats got left behind when there humans did not return.
I began feeding the two cats’ at their abandoned home’s during and after the storm in hopes their human would return to them however, that did not happen. It is coming up on one year and their loneliness is heartbreaking. I have taken in two cats and I am unable to take in anymore due to my rental situation. These two sweet cats deserve a human and home to call their own and find the love they have lost.
I have reached out in many ways and the blessing that has come is through two animal welfare organizations here on Kauai –Kauai Community Cat Project and Kauai Animal Welfare Society. KCCP is willing to transfer them to a non-kill shelter in Seattle, where they often get adopted within a week to their forever homes. The cost is usually around $250/cat ($500) which includes a rabies shot and health certificate from a vet, as well as the plane ride over. KAWS is willing to handle all flea, worm, possible dental and veterinarian visit cost for both cats. This is a gift as there are only so many homes for unwanted cats on an island the reality for a forever home for these to in within reach.
The cost as mentioned above is estimated at $500 I have set the goal at $600 to absorb some of the gofundme fees as I am not a non profit. If less monies are raised we will keep working towards are goal in other ways and if more monies are raised than our goal the monies will be given directly to Kauai Community Cat Project and Kauai Animal Welfare Society to fund more animals left behind to their forever homes. The priority is to get these sweet cats transferred and into their forever homes AS SOON AS POSSIBLE they need your support their quality of life depends on it.
The white female is friendly, very sweet, gentle and purr’s when you pet her. She is independent however, she will snuggle up to you, lick your hands and toes. She does well with other cats (I am not sure about dogs) She loves catnip kitty treats, plays with toys / string and enjoys a good combing, All around happy girl and comes to the name white kitty.
The orange male is very sweet, friendly and is a talker meow, meow, meow. He purr’s when you pet him and he loves to cuddle while sitting on your lap (lick your hands and toes). He seeks out lots of attention, is good with other female cats and is shy and hunkers down or runs away when he is approached by another male cat. He is a passive cat who could be an only cat but I think would enjoy a female cat buddy.
Much love, respect and gratitude for taking the time to read, share and support this Journey towards a happy ending. These two sweet innocent cats have weathered the storm literally and will finally be able to heal with their new human in their forever home with your donation. https://www.gofundme.com/two-sweet-cats-that-got-left-behind-need-your-help
