On Tuesday, April 4th, NHS Animal Control Officers arrived at an uninhabitable home to rescue more than 20 cats from the property.
The cats were living in unhealthy conditions with high ammonia levels and feces covering the floor. Ranging in age from three weeks to around three years old, the cats are currently being treated for fleas and weight loss. Many will need dental work to treat broken teeth and tartar build-up. Despite the conditions, the cats are friendly and in good spirits.
An expecting mother, as well as another mom and six kittens, will head to foster care, where they will be able to get the food, attention and care they need to grow big and strong. At least 10 of the cats will be ready for adoption Friday after being spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. The cats that will available for adoption are looking for owners who will help them gain a little weight and adjust to living in a home.
