TULSA, Oklahoma - The Tulsa Humane Society is looking for new homes for almost 20 cats removed from an overcrowded Guymon home. The terminally ill owner surrendered the cats to another rescue group, according to a news release.

“When we visited the residence, we saw that urgent intervention was needed,” said Adam Leath, Southeast regional director of ASPCA Field Investigations and Response. 

“It was truly a dire situation where the individual recognized that she had too many cats in her household and needed help removing and rehoming them so she can focus on getting help for herself.”

Many of the cats were in critical condition and needed emergency care, according to Tulsa Humane Society President Gina Gardner.

"“Several of the cats have recovered and are purring and pawing in their cages waiting on an adoptive family," she said.

They are seeking donations to help care for the cats including, non-clumping cat litter, cat collars, beds, toys treats, crinkle snacks and cleaning supplies.
