Cat Depot’s baker’s dozen reunion
13 cats from hoarding case and their adopters reunite
Sarasota, Fla. – (May 13, 2016) – A baker’s dozen brings to mind donut delicacies, but in this case they are 13 cats rescued by Cat Depot from a horrific Charlotte County hoarding case in January, 2015. These sweet cats were aptly named after donuts: Boston, Crème, Custard, Dunkin, Dutchie, Fritter, Frosting, Glaze, Jelly, Maple, Sprinkle, Sugar and Churro. Since their rescue and recovery from upper respiratory infections, skin infections and eye surgery, each cat now lives happily with their new loving adopters. To celebrate their good fortune, a Donut Family Reunion is scheduled on Friday, June 3, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon, in Cat Depot’s Education Center. In attendance will be the donut cats and their adoptive families, rescuers, volunteers, and friends of the donut kitties. Coffee and donuts will be served.
Charlotte County Animal Control removed 58 cats from a hoarding-type situation in a home in Charlotte County, including many who were sick or infected, on January 16, 2015. The felines were taken to the Animal Welfare League of Charlotte County, with 44 cats transferred to Cat Depot in Sarasota. After intake, testing, and treatment, Cat Depot kept 13 of the worse cases, and the rest were distributed to other animal organizations.
Donations are always needed for the Friends Like Me Program to provide emergency medical care and treatment to rescued cats and kittens who are sick, injured or have chronic illnesses.
