KUPUNA CATS

The average feral cat lives only 2-3 years in Hawaii, but once they are in our care we have doubled or tripled their life expectancy. We even have cats as old as 18 and some are our original cats from our very beginning! Because of the great care we provide, our kupuna (Hawaiian for “elder”) population is constantly growing. We currently have about 50 senior Lanai Lions and they all need extra medical attention from staff and individualized, more frequent visits from our veterinary team from Oahu. This specialized care comes at a great cost but we are committed to providing older cats with the long life they deserve.

For less than $2 a day you can sponsor a Kupuna or Special Needs Lanai Lion at our Fur Seasons and get periodic updates and photos of your chosen fur baby. Adopting in place is a popular option for those who can’t take a cat home. When you adopt a cat in place, you give the gift of a life-long home, high-quality care including doctor’s visits and everything needed for health and happiness.

Sponsorship makes a great gift for loved ones with a guaranteed blessing for your compassion for cats. Your recipient will receive an adoption certificate and periodic photo updates on how your kitty is doing.

SPECIAL NEEDS CATS

We are committed to all of our cats for the rest of their lives (or until we find homes for them). This means we will do anything necessary to keep them healthy, even if they require surgeries, special treatments, or other veterinarian-prescribed care.

Full mouth extractions to treat stomatitis and eye enucleations are just a couple of the costly surgeries we fly our veterinarians from Oahu weekly to perform. Monitoring of cats who are FIV positive or have head tilt (neurological disorder) also adds to our ongoing expenses.

Inflation has hit everyone, but on our remote island in the middle of the Pacific where we have 3,000 humans, one gas station, and no traffic lights, costs have gone up over 30% in the past year. We need your help to continue to care for our 700+ cats.

For less than $2 a day you can sponsor a Kupuna or Special Needs Lanai Lion at our Fur Seasons and get periodic updates and photos of your chosen fur baby.
