The Sweet Sixteen: 16 Cats Surrendered to FMAS

Little One still has to undergo a dental procedure before he is available for adoption.

On January 16, sixteen cats were surrendered to the Manchester Police Department Animal Control Division and brought to FMAS after their owner passed away.

All of the cats received vaccinations and full medical exams and because many of the cats are considered seniors (9+), they were also in need of extensive dental care. FMAS provided them with the medical and dental care that they needed, and we are happy to report that all 16 of them are healthy and up for adoption!

“This is a sad case where we know that the owner loved her pets very much, but because her family was unable to care for the cats, they ended up here at the shelter,” said Assistant Shelter Manager, Samantha Stein. “All the cats are very friendly and don’t mind being held or picked up, so we know that they were loved. They would make an excellent addition to any family.”

“These cats may be more difficult to place due to their age, but they still have a lot of life left to live and a lot more love to give,” commented Stein. “Most indoor cats can live up to 17, or more, happy and healthy years.”
