Support Spay and Neuter Farm Cats

Campaign Created by: Molly Reed

The funds from this campaign will be received by Molly Reed.

Goal: USD $3,000
Raised: USD $ 250

We live upon a road in which people get rid of unwanted cats regularly. We have taken in as many as 60 but currently have 11. It is increasingly difficult for us financially and we need help getting everyone spayed and neutered so that the population is not out of control in the spring. No animal is turned away, they all have a home with us. We have successfully found forever homes for many cats and kittens over the past few years. 

These cats are usually thrown out a car window and have no idea where it is or why it is not home. It sometimes takes a while to gain the trust but we try to make sure it eats and eventually feels comfortable. It costs upwards of $60 in a two week period to feed everyone as they eat 3 times a day. I  also make sure that flee control is applied monthly. We provide a heated cat tent for the winter and a shaded area for the warm months.

Due to our own health issues, I am asking for help and prayers. I feel that it is our duty to take care of any animal that is left on our property. Thank you to everyone who takes time to read our story. #GivingTuesday #GivingTuesday2023 #GivingTwosday #GivingTwosday2023

I think I spoke too soon, we have a new arrival and I think we will be having kittens any day now. She is very friendly so we have her in a heated cat tent. It has been very windy and I do not want to have to look for kittens. We will keep everyone posted. I am kind of excited as these kittens will give me a needed distraction from some other stuff going on. Socialized kittens are much easier to find homes for.

We also were just gifted two baby ducks that the owner could not care for and had a feeling I would need them. I had just been talking about how I missed having ducks that very morning. Today’s project will be clearing out the outside duck area and getting it ready for these little guys in a few weeks. Ducks are goofy and always up to something. My last duck would run through the hose with me during really hot days. He was so much fun. Hopefully these two will enjoy having fun with me.

Very sad news today. My buddy Puddin did not come for breakfast this morning. We found her and she is no longer with us. It is devastating as she was my walking partner. She was always up for an adventure here at the farm. She loved to visit the cows in the back paddock, she loved to explore the fields and orchard. She would stare down a large bull if he had gotten out from a fence. Many a time did she pin a bull down while we waited for our neighbor to get him back into the paddock. This little fluffy cat was a wrangler with the best of them!

Thank you all for listening.

We would again thank the donors who are helping us with the cats. We are making sure they are eating and are happy. We had enough to get a male cat neutered and really appreciate that fact. Thanks to everyone who are praying for us. 

I would like to report that is has been many months since a new cat has been left at the property! Hopefully it will be many more months without anyone else needing a safe home.

Thank you to the anonymous donor!!!! I cannot tell you enough how much we appreciate the help. I have applied for a discount spay coupon and will be making an appointment as soon as we are approved. 

Our attack cat is healing nicely. He has been outside during the day and has enjoyed sleeping on the hay bales.

Our patriarch cat was attacked by coyotes and managed to get away. He is in the house healing, has an appetite and is sleeping in his carrier near a heater. We are very thankful he survived and is bad, but not like what could have happened. 

The heated cat house is up and running so they are protected from the cold and snow. Last night I cooked a bunch of chicken legs for everyone to enjoy. They were on sale at the grocery and I bought several packs in order to provide a good meal during this snow. 


Thank you for all of the prayers.

Sad news here as Orange Kitty has died in his sleep. We fed and did as much as possible to find out who he belonged to. Unfortunately he was not chipped nor had a collar. We provided love and a warm place for him to sleep. It is very sad for us that we could not mend his broken heart. 


Thank you to everyone who prayed for an owner to come forward. He, like all of the cats left here, are trying to adjust. Sometimes the cat does and sometimes it is a long process.

We had our first snow of the winter and made sure the cats had a warm dry place to hideout in the garage area. We cooked ground beef and chicken thighs from the freezer for everyone to enjoy. Usually in the winter I like to heat up some sort of meat or fat to mix into the cat kibble so they have a nice treat everyday.

The prayers and support are appreciated and rest assured we are doing everything possible to take care of the cats. The latest drop, Orange Kitty, is starting to settle into being part of the group. He still will not let us touch him, but he responds to being called for meals and has been following us around the yard with all of the other cats.

Mushy was helped by a previous campaign. We need to neuter Tabby, Boo Bear, Hisser, and PeaPod. 

Spay Puddin, Cuddles, Fuzzy, Precious 

We have a new cat, Orange Kitty, big and fluffy but is still too skittish for us to see if it has been neutered and chipped. It eats with everyone but still is not sure about getting picked-up yet.
