MATTYDALE, NY – More than 100 cats were recently added to the nearly 130 cats already housed at the CNY SPCA shelter in Onondaga County.

These cats came from the home of a breeder in Oneida County who became overwhelmed and surrendered the animals last week. The SPCA facility told CNY Central in Syracuse they need cat necessities to accommodate the new arrivals.

"We are in desperate need of dry or canned cat food and clay cat litter," says Dee Schaefer, the CNY SPCA’s Humane Educator.

The SPCA says these are not just any cats. Most are pure-bred Persians, often bred and sold for a lot of money. These particular cats range in age from adults to bottle-fed kittens. CNY Central is reporting it could cost around $20,000 to care for all of these cats.

"(We need) small fleece blankets for the cats, metal food bowls, water bowls, litter boxes. We don't have enough litter boxes. Even go to the dollar store and get the dollar boxes - that would be a big help," says Schaefer.

The SPCA says it will be closed for the rest of this week while they tend to all of these newly-arrived cats.
