Barn Brats Feral Kitty Shelter is a non-profit (NPO 185-210) feral cat rescue centre started by Zelda Fuka, in loving memory of Gypsy, an angel in cat form. His divine purpose was to bring stray, feral or sick kittens home to be fed and nursed back to health. I shall continue your legacy and carry your memory in my heart. I commit to make a difference in the lives of unwanted and abandoned cats. I promise to not cage or kill. Our kitties will run free, relax and play in the sun. My goal is to humanely trapped, sterilize, vaccinate and provide them with food and warm shelter. Love you Gypsy! R.I.P. You will never be forgotten. You earned your wings.
Gypsy and three tiny kittens were left to die in a black bin bag. They were found by a walker who took them to Onderstepoort Veterinary Hospital. After furher inspection as to why the kittens are not drinking from their mother, they discovered that Gypsy is actually a male. The staff immediately fell in love with him and named him Gypsy. Homes were found for the little ones but they could not find a home for Gypsy. A nurse at OVH phoned my mother-in-law, Vanda Fuka, also a crazy cat lady, and without any hesitation we agreed to adopt him.
