Lincoln Humane Society receives 84 cats from single owner

LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - The Capital Humane Society says it received 84 cats from a single owner, this past weekend.

All of the cats and kittens appear to be in good condition, the Humane Society said, and they are receiving wellness exams and spay/neuter surgeries as they prepare for the adoption program.

"As you can imagine this unexpected influx of felines during a single weekend can put a strain on resources. This includes staff time and supplies to care for and prepare these kitties for the adoption program," the Humane Society wrote on Facebook, Tuesday.

"We are going through lots of litter, cat & kitten chow, shoe boxes, bedding, and more right now! But that is just on the daily care side of the situation! Additional microchips, vaccinations, and Feline Leukemia/FIV tests have been ordered which combined are over $25 per cat/kitten!"

Some of the cats and kittens will be available for adoption Wednesday at the Pieloch Pet Adoption Center at 11:30 a.m.

The Humane Society says it'll post additional updates about the cats and kittens on its Facebook page, but you can donate money or supplies, or see the cats available for adoption at the Humane Society's website.
