A Message From the Founder
I knew about the wild ponies of Assateague. I never knew about the Chincoteague cats until my first visit to the island.
The cats have a wild way about them similar to the ponies. If you pause and look, you will usually see a cat. Unlike the ponies, the cat population appears to be growing causing challenges for both people and cats.
I want to improve both people and cats' lives. I can’t do it alone. It will take an island… and you.
Please support CI Community Cats. Together we can help them all.
Sincerely, Julie A. Brommer
The specific objectives and purpose of Chincoteague Island Community Cats shall be:
To provide opportunities for the community to aid in establishing a sustainable cat program for island cats;
To sponsor, host and/or participate in events and activities that promote compassionate solutions for island cats;
To provide guidance and instruction for the community to engage, organize, fund and facilitate Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) events for island cats;
To partner with island cat colony caregivers and monitor colony status;
To provide education about community cats and best practices for cat care.
I was found alone on the side of Main Street. I was young maybe 3 ½ weeks old. I was nurtured back to health by a dedicated cat caretaker. She fed me, provided medicine and a safe place to grow stronger with other kittens & a surrogate cat mom.
I met a couple from PA not long after I was found. They decided to adopt me. When I was old enough, we traveled to PA. As a family, we visit the island often. I really enjoy bird watching from the porch.
I have a lot of Chincoteague Pals running around the island. Would you please help give my cat pals a hopeful story like mine?
