Dogs may be man's best friend, but every feline fan knows that when you have a cat, they become a part of the family. That's exactly why news stories like this one are especially upsetting; Toronto Cat Rescue is currently in the midst of responding to a horrible cat hoarding situation in which 100 cats were kept inside a single home.
Toronto Cat Rescue responded to the hoarding incident as soon as the agency was informed. The animal care agency - which is a self-proclaimed "no-kill, non-profit, registered charity" - is currently rehabilitating nearly 50 cats.
According to the organization, "While the cats were in transit they were definitely scared and did not understand what was going on. Imagine how disorienting it must be to live with so many felines, only to find yourself inside a cat carrier, and then placed into a new home?"
Only a mere day after the cats were adopted by their new foster families, Toronto Cat Rescue began receiving reports that the cats began to trust their owners and sought out affection, despite still being a tad shy.
"This is such inspiring news" said Toronto Cat Rescue their post. The organization is urging the public to donate to the cause to ensure that the cats are well cared for through the next chapters of their lives.
The Facebook post reads, "As you can imagine, with large rescues like this one, come large vet bills. We know that every single one of these cats will need to be spayed/neutered, dewormed and vaccinated."

While Toronto Cat Rescue indicates that several of these costs are taken care of, many of them still require financing. Toronto Cat Rescue commented, "And we have two pregnant mother cats (and their babies) who will all need care as well."
