At some point or another you've probably stumbled upon a stray cat or two.

I've been living in Williamston for almost a year now and there's tons cats roaming around the area.

The other day, I was on my way home from work and I noticed a woman setting up a cat trap near my apartment complex.

I assumed she was a Good Samaritan working with a local shelter to catch feral cats in the area.

I did a little digging and it turns out I was right.

The Williamston Community Cats Project

Sara Brockmiller otherwise known as the Williamston Community Cat Lady runs the Facebook page The Williamston Community Cats Project.

She's been caring for the stray cats in her community for years while volunteering and fostering for Saved By Zade, a non-profit for cats.

Brockmiller also traps, neuters, and returns (TNR) strays to help reduce the number of strays on the streets.

It's fairly easy to identify a TNR cat because their left ear is usually tipped. This helps individuals like caretakers, trappers or animal control determine whether a cat has already been sterilized.

Brockmiller told FOX 47 that she's currently dealing with panleukopenia which is similar to canine parvovirus. Which unfortunately means she can't take on anymore cats for the time being as the virus can remain in the environment for a year.

How You Can Help

Most foster programs or nonprofits survive off of volunteers and donations.

Several cats and kittens are in need of foster homes. If you're someone who is unable to foster but would still like to donate, every little bit helps!

If you are interested in donating or fostering you can find more information by visiting Saved By Zade or joining the Facebook group The Williamston Community Cats Project!
