PORTLAND, Ore. — The Oregon Humane Society says nearly 60 cats and kittens that had been living in a Newberg, Ore., apartment have been rescued and taken to the society’s shelter in Portland.
Oregon Humane Society Executive Director Sharon Harmon said Tuesday that the owner gave up the cats after being overwhelmed by their care and feeding needs.
Harmon says “life just got immeasurably better” for the 13 kittens and 46 adult cats. They will be examined by a medical team and receive any necessary care.
The cats are not yet available for adoption. Harmon says the shelter has more than 70 other cats available, and more arrive each day.
