Cats desperately need homes!
I need advice badly!

My mother took ill (Hospice) and she has 8 adult cats!
2 cats are originally hers (my sister is going to take them home soon). Strays (2 tame cats) came to her little ranch
and stayed eating food her cats left(my mother had them fixed). Young relatives
dropped their unwanted cats off (really thoughtful of them)at her place.
She has about 6 tame older cats at her property that need homes.

Anyone have any advice on finding them homes? I'm afraid
to give them to anyone. A friend told me that a man got a free cat from Greg's list and tortured the cat! Some people take these cats and sell them to labs. I don't want this happening to these poor cats.
I am feeding and watering these cats. I've even wormed them.
(I took home the stray dog my mother took in) I can't afford anymore pets.

As soon as it cools down I will have no choice but to
take them to the animal shelter and they will probably put them to sleep.

Any advice on finding these cats homes? I would appreciate
any advice.

Thank you!

Re: Cats desperately need homes!
OP, not every shelter puts animals down. Check around your area to see if there is a no-kill shelter close to you. Your vet can help you find out if there is one. Your vet's office might be a good place to advertise for homes, too. My vet has a bulletin board for people to post flyers. They can give you advice about adopting them out, too.

We have the same problems as your mom. People from the city drive out and just dump their "pets" when they get tired of them. We've adopted a bunch of dogs and cats that way. We've had to have a few put down because of it, though. Good luck, hope this helps.

THANK YOU FOR THIS ADVICE!
We have a vet we go to near us! I will post in their bulletin board! (I didn't even think of that).
What is sad where I live (southern ca) is that people claim to have no kill shelters for cats but when you contact them
there is no help.

Re: Cats desperately need homes!
That's the big problem with no-kill shelters. They fill up really fast and the animals don't get adopted fast enough. Maybe you can check out the people through the vet's office, too. If they see your flyer there, the workers SHOULD know them and can tell you if they're good people.

Again Thank you!

I live in a depressed area of southern Ca. When the construction industry took a dive so did the area!
Loads of foreclosed homes. People dumped animals like crazy
and I took in 3 stray dogs. (the one my mom took in make 4).
One man couldn't feed his horse and shot it.
The horse shelters are full too!

I will call the vet today!

Re: Cats desperately need homes!
find a shelter that doesn't euthanize. my village has one - they will only put a cat to eternal sleep when it's terminally ill or old and in constant pain...

Re: Cats desperately need homes!
Get them all fixed its cheap its like only 35 bucks. If they're feral then its only 20 bucks. If you have a lot of money you can surrender them to a place called cat house on the kings for 4500 dollars a cat. Its a no kill lifetime shelter. That's what I'm planning on doing with 12-15 of my feral cats that I'm feeding.

2 problems solved, ALF-style.

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

In Asia

In Guangdong and Guangxi provinces in south-eastern China, some - especially older - people consider cat flesh a good warming food during winter months. However, in the northern China eating cat is considered unacceptable. It is estimated that around 4 million cats are eaten in China each year, and that the number is rising.[4] However, overseas visitors are unlikely to come across downtown restaurants serving cat, which is only common out of town and in the city outskirts.[4]

The cat's stomach and intestines may be eaten, as well as meat from the thighs, which are turned into meatballs served with soup, with the head and the rest of the animal then thrown away. In Guangdong, cat meat is a main ingredient in the traditional dish "dragon (snake), tiger (cat), phoenix (chicken)", which is said to fortify the body.[4]

Trade in cat meat is illegal in China, according to a local animal protection lawyer,[who?] and a 2007 law requires businesses dealing in "food that is not customarily eaten in China" to obtain special authorization. Nevertheless, organized cat-collectors supply the southern restaurants with animals that often originate in Anhui and Jiangsu provinces.[4][5] On 26 January 2010 China launched its first draft proposal to protect the country's animals from maltreatment including a measure to jail people, for periods up to 15 days, for eating cat or dog meat.[6][7]

In Japan, cat meat was consumed until the end of Tokugawa period in the 19th century,[8] though since it has long been considered unacceptable.

In Korea, cat meat used to be boiled and made into a tonic as a folk remedy for neuralgia and arthritis, though the meat by itself is not customarily eaten.[9]
South America

Cat is not a regular menu item in Peru, but is used in such dishes as fricassee and stews most abundant in two specific sites in the country: the southern town of Chincha Alta (Ica Region, Afro-Peruvian mostly) and the north-central Andean town of Huari (Ancash Region). Primarily used by Afro-Peruvians. Cat cooking techniques are demonstrated every September during the festival of Saint Efigenia in a town of La Quebrada.[10] In Huari, cat is consumed as replacement for guinea pig, most used through all Peruvian Highlands. Huari born people are often known as mishicancas (from Ancash Quechua mishi kanka, grilled cat).

In Brazil, specifically in Rio de Janeiro, there are urban legends saying that some street-made barbecue is made of cat meat, which is called "churrasquinho de gato" (literally, cat barbecue). Such urban legends, referring to pie filling, kebabs, hamburgers, gyros, etc., are commonplace, with varying degrees of truth or ironic scorn at street vendors' quality to them.

Cat meat was consumed in the city of Gran Rosario in Argentina in the middle of the economic crisis in 1996. As citizens of Gran Rosario argued to the media, "It's not denigrating to eat cat, it keeps a child's stomach full."

[11]
Europe

Cats are eaten in certain rural Swiss cultures;[12] the traditional recipe on farms in some regions involved cooking the cat with sprigs of thyme.[13] In January 2004, Reuters reported that, "Swiss culinary traditions include puppies and kittens. Private consumption of cat and dog is permissible. Swiss animal welfare groups say it is hard to estimate how many pets are eaten in Switzerland every year."[14]

Researchers have found recipes for "cat stew" and "cat in sauce" in the Basque Country in the Spanish province of Alava. Lluis Ripoll includes a medieval recipe for cooking cat in his book 'Llibre de cuina mallorquina'.[citation needed]

In February 2010, the food writer Beppe Bigazzi on a televised cooking show mentioned that cat stew was a "succulent" and well known dish in his home area of Valdarno, Tuscany. Later he claimed he had been joking, but added that cats used to be eaten in the area, historically; he was widely criticised in the media for his comments and ultimately dropped from the television network.[15]

Cats were sometimes eaten as a famine food during harsh winters, poor harvests, and wartime. Cat gained notoriety as "roof rabbit" in Central Europe's hard times during and between World War I and World War II.[16][17]

In 18th-century Britain, geeks were known to eat cats as a part of a form of live entertainment.[18]

Elsewhere

Indigenous Australians in the area of Alice Springs roast feral cats on an open fire. They have also developed recipes for cat stew. Some other inhabitants of the area have also taken up this custom, justified on the grounds that felines are "a serious threat to Australia's native fauna". Scientists warned that eating wild cats could expose humans to harmful bacteria and toxins.[19]

In some cultures of Cameroon, there is a special ceremony featuring cat-eating that is thought to bring good luck.[20]

the other ALF has better remedies to such atrocities.

cats are intelligent, consciouss creatures who display self-awareness. you don't eat those. you consider them family and further their spiritual growth. at least, that's what real humans do.
