TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Calling all cat lovers! The Leon County Humane Society is asking for your help.

This comes as the animal shelter recently took in more than 50 kittens and cats.

These felines come from a rescue endeavor in the area. The person who runs the rescue operation is very sick and, for now, cannot take care of the cats.

Many of the felines are neutered and spayed.

The director of the Leon County Humane Society says these cats are looking for a new friend to chill with.

“People don’t realize how easy it can be especially with adult cats," said Lisa Glunt, the executive director of Leon County Humane Society. "They just want to chill, hang out with you on the couch, love on you."

“All these cats are super sweet and super loving," said Kinsey Pocchio, a volunteer with Leon County Humane Society. "So giving some of them a nice opportunity to be a part of your family would be really great and beneficial for all the shelters in town.”

The Humane Society is also taking donations from clumping cat litter to canned food.
