Good Samaritan's acts give cats a second chance

Working in the newsroom has advantages. My mom was able to help these cats left homeless.

WRAL's newshound Tracker shared this Good Samaritan story on Facebook:

On Tuesday, an urgent e-mail came into the WRAL Newsroom from a man named David in Wake Forest. This was his plea:


Saturday evening a neighbor was found dead in her home. She left behind two very beautiful cats with no will or petcare instructions. We were able to gain access to the home after the police left so that we could search for the two cats. Fortunately, they were both OK…frightened for sure…but OK. We have been feeding and loving on them for the past two days, but have been given a deadline to find a home or homes for them, otherwise they will be destroyed.


My mom forwarded the e-mail and pictures to Ms. Mondy at the SPCA of Wake County to see if they could help.

Ms. Mondy contacted Mr. David right away for some additional information.

She then contacted the rescue group Marley's Cat Tales and they agreed to take the kitties and find them homes! I am so happy there are good people who love animals so much they will go to great lengths to help them. Mr. David's actions, along with Ms. Mondy and the good people at Marley's Cat Tales, literally saved the lives of two very special cats who had just lost the one person in the world who loved them the most.

I hope they go to homes where they can find that kind of love again!
