Six cats rescued from an alleged hoarding situation in Caledonia are now ready for their fur-ever homes.

Wisconsin Humane Society Racine Director Alison Kleibor made the announcement Friday in a written release.

“Six of the cats have been medically cleared to go into our adoption program, after treatment for conditions ranging from dental issues to respiratory infections,” said Kleibor. “They are so deserving of loving families and we hope to place them soon.”

Because the cats are adults – their ages are estimated between seven and 14 – there isn’t a set fee for their adoption. Kleibor said WHS recognizes that finding forever families for older cats can be challenging.

“Many people are looking for kittens or younger cats to adopt, but we know that some people love to provide seniors with happy retirement homes. It is so rewarding to share your home with a kitty in her golden years,” she added.

Adoption hours at WHS are noon to 8 p.m. Mon. – Fri. and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. The organization does accept same-day adoptions. To see all the cats available – and other animals also waiting for a family – visit www.wihumane.org.
