#SOS Save Our Strays!

Hello. My name is Ellen Shockley. For over 30 years, I have trapped, spayed, neutered, fed, and housed, numerous feral cats in my backyard. I estimate I have taken care of over 50 cats in that time. Some come and go, but, more often than not, they stay in the several small houses I built under my porch and the porch next door. I currently care for over 15 feral cats that I consider “residents.” There's always new ones, who need to be vetted and fixed  and fed. I already have three inside, so our apartment is at the limit. This was all fairly manageable when my husband and I both had full-time jobs. Unfortunately, my husband got laid off, and now I'm out of work, too. Our love for these cats, is eating us out of house and home! :( Any donation, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated! EVERY penny will be used for food, vet bills, and materials to keep them warm, dry and happy. Please donate, or see my wish list, for things we always need. Thank you in advance, from the kitties and me. THANK YOU! Ellen Shockley
