The Meriden Humane Society is asking for the help of the community after dozens of cats were rescued earlier this week.

Rescue officials said 29 cats were found at one home this week, hiding behind furniture and appliances, and some were even found in the ceiling.

The humane society said it will cost them $100 per cat, to spay or neuter and vaccinate. Plus, another $40 per week to feed them, and another $400 for flea, worm and ear mite medication.

“These babies need you! We have rescued and to keep our promise to them, and we need your assistance,” the humane society said on its Facebook page.

Then, on Thursday, the humane society posted that three more cats were found inside a plastic container in the park on Cook Avenue.

Rescue officials said the cats were hot and hungry and it was unclear how long they had been stuffed inside the plastic bin.

The cats are between the ages of 1 and 3 years old, and they will not be available until after their two week quarantine.

The three cats were named Jingle, Jangle and Jessica, all named after characters in the holiday movie A Year without a Santa Claus.
