Update: As October eased toward November, the last of the cats rescued from a Florida hoarder found placement.

Two-hundred-fifty-eight very lucky cats went home with their new best friends after a massive cat adoption event Aug. 26-28 in Gainesville, Fla. All the cats have benefitted from good eats and vet care since their rescue from a hoarder in June and are about to see their lives get even better with families who understand what they have been through.
From an HSUS staffer/event volunteer, "One kitty named Wooble-Wobbles had a bad neurological disorder, and his people drove in from out of state for the adoption. Tons of beautiful cats with A++ personalities were adopted, too. HSUS and partners totally rocked it."
