Take These Three Kitties...Please!
"They were indoor/outdoor cats, although they've been doing fine as indoor cats. They're immaculately clean. A safe indoor/outdoor home probably would be OK, as long as they continued to get the love and attention they crave."
They were among dozens of animals rescued from a condemned trailer park in Naranja, FL, from which, says my friend, "Many pet owners simply drove off, abandoning their cats and dogs to fend for themselves. Some of the animals literally died on the doorsteps, waiting for their former owners to return."
I wrote about it at the time.
"A few private citizens, like myself, stepped in to help the dogs and cats left behind. A wonderful animal shelter in Naples, Friends of Gummi, accepted a disabled and abused male cat that required surgery and the sister who cared for him, and a third cat that tested positive for FIV. All three have found permanent homes, thanks to Friends of Gummi. To date, to my knowledge, no other organization has come forward to assist with either the cats or the dogs."
These guys - including Naranja, the black cat - have been neutered, had rabies shots, have tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV, were dewormed and deflea-ed. They're no older than a year. If you're interested, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
