Cat AdoptionThe Humane Society of Redmond, Ore., has become the second recipient of dozens of cats from a Northern California woman who moved to Central Oregon with, as it turns out, more than 50 felines in her moving van.

Shelter officials said the woman contacted the Redmond shelter on April 25, saying she had to return the rental van she used to relocate and had been unable to secure housing for the cats as planned.

Because of the situation and the animals conditions, the Redmond shelter staff agreed to take in what the woman said was 20 cats. But when the van was unloaded, the actual number turned out to be 36, ranging in age from newborn to several years.

In addition to these kittens, the Bend Spay & Neuter Clinic in Bend, Ore., said it received another 19 cats from the woman about a week ago when she contacted that organization for help.

There are a variety of breeds to choose from at the Redmond location and most are in good condition, according to the shelter. Most will be adoptable immediately. The adoption fee is $35 each for the rescued cats, who occupy an entire holding room at the shelter.
