47 cats found living in a car with their owner in Minnesota | American News



Some 47 cats were rescued from a parked car in scorching heat, animal welfare workers said.

The cats lived in the vehicle with their owner, who had recently become homeless but did not want to leave the animals behind.

They were found in the car while it was parked at a rest area in the US state of Minnesota.

Temperatures in the area soared to 90°F (32°C) on Tuesday – the day the cats were rescued. Inside the car it would have been much warmer.

Despite the heat, most of the cats – aged under a year to over 12 – had only minor medical issues.

Animal Humane Society investigator Ashley Pudas said: “Unfortunately with the heat yesterday he recognized that it was beyond what he was capable of at the time.

“And he let us help them.”

The owner had been living with the cats for a while but he hadn’t left them alone. He had previously abandoned 14 other cats who lived in the car.

Once the 47 cats have been examined and cared for, they will be sterilized and made available for adoption.
