It was "the cat lady" who took care of more than 100 cats in her Texas home. But when she died in July at 72, what would happen to all of those kitties?
Particularly in a town without an animal shelter?
The Austin-American Statesman reports on a remarkable effort by the woman's neighbors to take in each of the 110 cats, and to get them fixed and adopted into new homes.
Nearly two months after the woman's death, they've largely succeeded in finding the felines homes, the paper writes. Just 16 cats remain, all at one neighbor's house.
Corinne Delisle, along with other volunteers, take care of 24 adoptable cats, a portion of the cats left behind when Glinne Berry, known as the "cat lady", died in July. Blanco County, Texas, has no animal control agency or animal shelter, so the 72-year-old woman's neighbors knew they had to step in and help. (AP Photo/American Statesman, ricardo B. Brazziell)
