The dad said he knew there were a lot of cats outside the home, but was surprised so many were living in the small bedroom without his knowing.  The homeowner's adult daughter had left for a few days when he decided to look inside. Before, he had respected her privacy.

Some of the rescued cats are thin and appeared to suffer from malnutrition. But overall they look quite healthy.


The humane society is accepting cash donations to help with medical care. All the cats will be spayed or neutered and vaccinated. Many will be ready for adoption as early as next week. Those interested in bringing home one of the cats can call 616-453-8900 for more information and to fill out a survey.
