An elderly Shelton resident recently passed away, leaving behind a dozen outdoor cats. The long-time resident loved his cats, according to Irene McCoy, of Compassion for Cats, and one of his greatest pleasures was having them all run to him for their twice-a-day feedings.
They would jump on his lap to cuddle, but unfortunately are now very confused and scared, McCoy said. Since the house must be sold, there is no place for the cats to go. “We are desperately searching for caring people to provide refuge for them,” McCoy said. Most are orange in color, and each cat will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and transported to a new place. If anyone can take one cat or two, contact Compassion for Cats at 203-929-7909.
