Our Mission

To reduce the feral, stray, and homeless cat population in Batesville, MS and the surrounding areas, primarily in Panola County.

To achieve this mission, we will implement a three-pronged approach:
  •  Trap Neuter Release – locating and sterilizing adult feral cats that cannot be rehomed as pets. (Community Cats) Minimum veterinary care includes sterilization surgery and rabies vaccination. Additional care is provided on an as needed basis.
  •   Trap Neuter Rehome – capturing stray and abandoned adult cats as well as stray, abandoned, and feral kittens that can be rehomed as pets. Minimum veterinary care includes sterilization surgery, and vaccinations.  Additional care is provided on an as needed basis.
  •  Opening a cat shelter and working with other rescue organizations in finding foster and adoptive homes for stray and feral cats or kittens that can become family pets and supporting those who currently care for feral cat colonies.
Our adoption fees are currently set at $30, but we will accept any donation above that amount to help defray our costs.

My house has long been a stray cat magnet. I don't know if they smell the cat food, or if people drop them off because they know I'm going to take care of them. Four of the five cats I currently have were strays. I recently set up a trail cam on my porch to get an accurate count of how many cats I'm actually feeding. I've seen two extra cats and one very fat raccoon so far, so I'm hoping to get pictures. This is not just a problem at my house, though. All over town you see cats and kittens dashing between the shadows or foraging in dumpsters. I've picked up kittens off the side of country roads and gotten them a new home or to a rescue. I've decided it's time to make my actions official and start a non-profit dedicated to managing the feral cat population with TNR (trap, neuter, release), and finding homes for feral kittens and stray adults. You can read more about the difference between stray and feral cats here . To that end, I'm going to need

Well, the past two weeks have been interesting...

On 4/5 I got a call that there was a kitten at Dunlap & Kyle that needed to be picked up. They have no idea how he got there, and he was only about 4 weeks old at the time. They named him Gutter, because they found him in the parking lot gutter. The same day I got another frantic call from Morris Lawn Service about a kitten that was found in the back of one of their work trucks. He turned out to be about 2 weeks old. Emily took both of them and they are doing really well.   Monday 4/8 someone threw 4 kittens out on the side of Bell Road in a box. They were no more than 2-3 days old. They are in with a nursing mom in Sardis and are thriving. On Thursday I got a call about a friendly stray someone let in so she could have her kittens in safety. I've been trying to save room in our Caternity Ward for cats who are in immediate danger, but I'm really glad I took her. Saturday, in one of the worst storms we've had in a while, the calico at Walmart that everyone has
