September 18, 2012Can you help one or more of these cats?
A kind-hearted man named Mark made it his mission to save a group of stray cats whom someone had tried to poison. He started by taking about a dozen cats into his North Hollywood home. Since they weren’t spayed or neutered, their number quickly multiplied. Mark still managed to feed them well and keep the house clean. But when he was diagnosed with cancer, the situation deteriorated. And by the time he passed away, more than one hundred cats were left behind. Now his widow is in a terrible spot.
Some of the cats are friendly, others are semi-feral and able to bond with new caregivers, and many are unsocialized, but used to being indoors around people. All of the cats are now spayed or neutered and vaccinated. They appear to be in good health and range in age from about two to seven years old. They’re mostly black cats with some black-and-white and a few tabbies. Most are short-haired, but a few are long-haired. Time is of the essence for these cats, who need to find homes either with loving families, or in some cases, community cat caregivers, or large property owners who would welcome, feed and care for barn cats.
If you or someone you know can offer any of the cats a safe place to live, please contact Kristine as soon as possible. She can be reached at (818) 284-1833 email@example.com. She’d be thrilled to hear from you and delighted to help you select the cat or cats who would be the best match for your living situation. Best Friends staff members would be happy to drive the cats to their new homes anywhere in Southern California.
