FORT WORTH (KRLD) - Forty-one neglected cats have a new chance at life thanks to the Humane Society of North Texas.

The cats were confined in wire cages and travel carriers on a property in southeast Fort Worth.  They were covered in fleas, had ear mites and intestinal worms.

Officials say the building they were housed in had no electricity or running water.

"The food that was there was very disgusting. The ammonia smell was overwhelming in the building," HSNT Community Relations Manager Cassie Lackey told 1080 KRLD.

Lackey says the property owners negotiated the release as it appeared the cats were abandoned by a tenant who moved off their property.

The cats are now being treated for parasites and are resting comfortably with plenty of room to stretch their legs. 

"Once they have completely recovered they will be available for adoption in our facilities," Lackey said.

The HSNT says they are in need of immediate financial support for these neglected animals to cover the cost of food, bedding, and veterinary care.
