Forgotten Felines

HUNTSVILLE, ALABAMA (WHNT) - Local animal rescue agencies are scrambling to find a home for more than 20 cats found abandoned in a Limestone County home. It's a serious situation they say could have easily been avoided.

Local author Homer Hickam and his wife Linda couldn't believe what they saw. They volunteer for Forgotten Felines and helped rescue more than 20 abandoned cats and kittens -- some blind, injured, and even pregnant.

All of them were skin and bones, living in squalor.

"It was horrific," said Homer Hickam. "They're beautiful cats and they need to be saved."

The person who owns the property had known the former tenants had owned pets, but had no clue they had left them behind to breed and starve.

Already, other rescue organizations have stepped up to help treat the ailing felines, but they still need a home.

"We have no place for these cats to go," said Hickam.

The Hickams are fostering a few of the cats now.

Situations like this don't have to happen. All you have to do is simply spay and neuter your pets.

"By letting so many cats collect out there, kittens having kittens essentially and leaving they basically left the problem to somebody else, that's just not right," said Hickam.

Forgotten Felines is in need of food, medical services, and money to help bring these cats back to health.

For more information on how to donate or foster these cats, visit the Forgotten Felines web site or email forgottenfelineshsv@yahoo.com.
