CALIFORNIA – When staff members arrived at work early one February at the Cat House on the Kings, which is a no-kill cat rescue and sanctuary in Parlier, California, they discovered 14 plastic tubs scattered around outside the sanctuary.
They were surprised and actually horrified by what they saw because all of the tubs contained cats. The workers quickly carried the tubs inside and began to assess this strange situation.
“The plastic tubs all matched and had carefully-drilled air holes in them and were zip-tied closed to keep the kitties inside. Every tub had a fleece blanket,” stated Harvie Schreiber, who is a worker at the Cat House on the Kings.
They found a mama cat with 2 kittens, plus a total of 13 others, all aged between 5 months and 3 years. Apart from the new kittens, there was 11 females and 3 males.
The cats were not dirty, ill, or too skinny and it was obvious that they had been well taken care of.
The Cat House was already caring for approximately 800 cats plus kittens, all of these are rescue cats, and all have been spayed or neutered.
They have a firm policy never to turn down any animals that come their way because they know in their hearts that they all deserve a second chance at life. With the additional 16 new arrivals, they have their work cut out for them.
All of these cats are now in good hands!
After a busy day examining each and every one of the new arrivals, the cats were quickly settled into comfortable rooms where they could finally relax and be showered with love. Although a bit shocked by everything that has happened to them, they will all soon come out of their shells.
Many of these rescued cats are polydactyls, which means they have extra toes like this little fella below.
All of the staff members and volunteers at the Cat House on the Kings do a wonderful job and will not let any of these beautiful furry creatures be left behind.
