There are people who offered to Foster these cats. Why did the rescue turn down their offer?

And what bank is being so unreasonable about the cats being there? When I find out I'm telling every cat lover that I know not to do business with them.


The woman who actually found these cats is not connected to any shelter but she went out of her way to seek out shelters to help with finding the cats homes. She fed them all daily and would check in on them until they found homes. She called the woman connected to the above shelter in Terryville who claimed she could only take in 2 cats, and the rest were unaccounted for. And now she has the news involved..... I would hope for the sake of these cats and finding homes and not for her own shelter's publicity.
