As of January 20, 2008, all of the cats have been rescued!

Union Hoarder cats currently in boarding needing rescue!  Unless otherwise noted, the cats are EXTREMELY friendly and show EXTREMELY well in cages.  They are all dying for affection.  They all seem healthy except for a few with mild URI, for which they are being treated.  All have been treated with Revolution or Frontline and dewormed with Drontal.  Our breed descriptions may not be accurate so please judge for yourself.

An anonymous donor is paying for spay/neuter and FIV/FeLV testing of all of the cats.  All have now been spayed/neutered and tested.

Without the help of everyone pitching in, these many cats would have never made it to safety and on their way to happy lives.  There were 64 cats total.  The night of the raid, 16 cats went directly to rescue and 48 went to boarding.  We posted on rescue message boards asking for help and rescues responded.  Our most heartfelt thanks to those who have taken cats into their organizations for placement.

Hi, wanted to give you an update.. Koko and Casper will be going to their new home TOGETHER this Sunday. The owner recently lost her 2 soon to be 20 year old Persian kitties. (within a few months of each other)  She has a lot of patience and did A LOT of vet work on her kitties.
01/11/08 update from adopter:
Koko and Casper are slowly starting to come around.  They hid under the bed in the downstairs bedroom for a couple of days but came out to eat and use the litter pan.  (Their appetite is great.) On Monday they did let me pet them under the bed. They both went exploring during the night.  As of last night Koko officially let me give him pets and isses and is playing out in the open.  Casper is now purring when I pet him under the bed. He  peeks out for me to come and pet him and will sit a few feet away from me in the living room .   He keeps getting closer and closer.  He even played a game with me with a toy under the bed.  It looks like the boys are going to be very happy very soon in their new home.

Cat #28 update from adopter:
Hi - I wanted to give you an update on Lacey.  She is just the sweetest, friendliest, talkative kitten!  As I am sitting here typing she is trying to jump on the keyboard to look at the computer monitor! She is enjoying her space in our spare room and is already trying to get out the door to see the rest of the house. She loves to flop over on her side and get her belly rubbed.  She loves to be near people and whenever we are in the room she jumps right into our laps.   Thanks again for trusting us with this beautiful cat.  I promise to send pictures and keep you updated.
