Middletown, CT – A person who tried to help four pregnant cats during the start of the pandemic got overwhelmed when things did not go as planned. As reported by NBC Connecticut, the good Samaritan took in four homeless cats who were pregnant, but many veterinary hospitals closed or limited services available during the pandemic shutdowns, and the cats were not altered.
A Middletown animal control officer explained that it was:
“a rescue that went bad and became overwhelming due to the difficulties everyone was dealing with at the start of COVID.”
The person voluntarily surrendered 59 cats and has been “cooperative.” So far, Pieper Veterinary has altered 18 of the surrendered cats so they can be made available for adoption. The Connecticut Humane Society is helping to cover the cost of care and veterinary services for the remaining cats and will assist in getting rescue agencies to take them in.
