The Townsville Foster and Rehoming Animals, located in Queensland, Australia, were called to help by a caretaker posted to a house in the area.
Indeed, the man was responsible for cleaning up the house after his owner was hospitalized indefinitely. Upon arrival, he quickly realized that he could not fulfill his mission.
In addition to the extremely unsanitary condition, at least 45 felines lived in the house.
The poor animals lived among their excrement. In addition, they suffered terribly from hunger.
Volunteers of the association with transport boxes transported the kittens to the shelter.
“The whole situation was terrible. If you leave 45 cats in a house that no one takes care of, you’ll quickly end up in a giant litter box,» manager Angela Atkinson told.
Despite their best efforts, some specimens are still on the scene because they are not socialized and therefore do not allow themselves to be approached.
The rest, on the other hand, received help from veterinarian Riley Baker.
“Among those with whom we managed to cope, there were several people who, unfortunately, suffered from a rather serious dental disease. Others had long-term health problems, but for the most part, fortunately, they were relatively healthy,» she said.
