The topic: How would you get rid of twenty cats in under 48 hours?


A woman who had many cats passed away last year.  They were a source of joy to her in her life. They meant everything to her (thinking of how much my mom loved her cats). Her husband (who wasn’t known to be nearly as fond of the cats as his wife) passed away last week. It wasn’t expected, as far as I can tell.

A couple of the grown daughters had the cats out of the home in less than forty-eight hours, on a Saturday night.

I know how hard it is for people to place one or two cats when they need to find homes for them. It can take weeks or longer, sometimes never finding new homes.

How could someone do this in under two days?  On a weekend?

The story is they were “given to a no-kill shelter and that they’ll be put up for adoption”.

I’m incredibly skeptical at this point.

Twenty-eight cats just bundled up and dropped off at a no-kill shelter, at a momen’t notice? No way.

Whoops, I meant to type “moment’s”! Pardon me, I’m half asleep! smile

I knew what you meant.

Seriously, I don’t think those cats had a good ending. I think those daughters are lying. I sort of made a nasty comment where it was announced and one of the husbands private messaged me in FaceBook, demanding an apology for my comment.

I responded back to him that I didn’t really care what he thought of me (he “wasn’t impressed”) and then asked “where are the cats?”  Never heard another word.

Yeah, Im with you. Guess they won’t end up with a happy ending. On top of that, I’ve done enough rescue…NO WAY a shelter took in 20 cats at once..NO WAY!
