A situation has been brought to our attention in Cave Junction. An elderly couple who had taken care of numerous, outside cats at their home, have had to leave their home and the cats are being cared for by neighbors.
At this time, it is unclear if the couple will be able to return to their home. Neighbors are not interested in caring for the cats long-term, and the assumption is the cats need to be spayed or neutered. It’s been four months for these cats with no resolution.
An active Illinois Valley volunteer has been spending time with the cats and they have shown some trust and a desire for friendship. She has been able to pet one, and they are now sitting near her. She has given them a lot of space.
Caring volunteers and neighbors are looking to rehome as many of these cats as they can. They have lived outside, so would probably make excellent barn cats. Spay/Neuter assistance may be available if needed by the adopter.
