Oyster's Story

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?
