If you would like to help one of ORA's cats, but you are not ready to
adopt a cat at the moment or you cannot add another cat to your
menagerie, or perhaps you live far away, you can virtually adopt one by
becoming a sponsor.
This will help us care for the cats who are
permanent residents of our sanctuary, either because they are affected
by some medical problem that requires regular treatment, or because
they have behavioural problems, or just simply because they have been
with us for many years and at this point of their life any change would
be too traumatic for them.
You can sponsor one or more of these
cats and we will send you:
1) An up-to-date picture twice a
2) Regular information about how the sponsored cat is
doing and how she is spending her days
3) Updates about her
health and results of her medical check ups, etc.
If the cat you
select is already sponsored by someone else we will let you know and
you can select to sponsor another cat or to co-sponsor the same cat.
You can sponsor the cats by covering all the expenses, or just donate a
fixed amount every month or at regular intervals to cover some of the
On average the monthly cost of feeding a cat is just a
little above $45.00 . We feed our cats a diet composed 40% of premium
canned cat food (containing human graded ingredients), 50% raw diet,
10% cooked home-made food. High quality holistic dry food is given only
as a snack, once a week. Monthly we spend an additional $5 to $6 per
cat in supplements, vitamins, acidophilus, etc.
The cats that
need constant treatment and medication cost an additional amount, on
average $30 to $50 according to the medications they need, and the
frequency of tests and veterinarian examinations needed.
