An incredibly strong and violent storm caused major damage to Fat Kitty City on March 22nd. Strong winds and flooding tore down the cyclone fence that surrounds the Sanctuary. The fencing, which keeps our resident cats safely inside and also keeps out local predators, had stood for nearly 10 years without problems.
Our quick thinking volunteers set up an Emergency Go Fund Me site and shared it throughout social media. In less than 24 hours the goal of $10,000 was exceeded. As of today there has been over $19,000 raised.
This extra money will come in handy, as not only the fencing will need replacing, but many pieces of structures and equipment were also damaged.There will also be culverts installed to redirect the creek that runs through the property and flooded during the storm.
Over 75 volunteers have helped to start the cleanup of the area.
All cats appear to have been accounted for and none have been injured during this event.
Cindy and Ed were interviewed on the local Fox News channel and you can see the extent of the damage in this video.
