Cats needing rescue in the Chicago Area

Mom found this notice today. We are re-posting the notice here. We just want to clarify that this is a notice she found online- WE are NOT in Chicago so unfortunately we cannot help beyond re-posting this notice but we hope many of you will do the same and pass the word around.

I'm a pet photographer in Chicago and often go to people's homes or shelters in the area, photograph pets and help them find homes.

I went to one woman's home and there were about 85 cats ... disgusting situation.

So, basically, I accidentally stepped into this hoarding case and I'm now working with the city of Evanston to find a safe place for all the cats to go ... 35 have gotten out, but that leaves 50 cats to go.

All are black, or black and white ... most are at least spayed/neutered and virsu-tested, some are vaccinated, and a few are micro-chipped too.

I'm reaching out to all the rescues and seeing if anyone can take just two cats ... They are a little on the shy side, but none have been truely feral.

We can even deliver!

I've got to get the cats out by March 31st or they will be euthanized.

Please let all the blogging kitties know about this!

Oh, how sad! We hope none of these kitties will be euthanized but March 31 isn't enough time to find homes for all of them. This is terrible.

It makes us very sad to hear of situations like this! I hope you can find homes for everyone before March 31st. We're purring for you!

That's not much time. We will repost. Wish we lived closer so we could do more. ~S,S,C & F

WOW, I wish I could, but we already have our limit of 5. I grew up in that town too and don't live too far from it now.
