    Hi,
    I am in urgent need of rescuing a male adult neutered blind cat (double enucleated) and spayed adult female. I was in an abusive relationship and had to escape, I had nowhere to go so I had to go back to Sweden. I had to leave my two cats behind because the situation got acute. The environment they are left in has now become really bad. There is nonstop loud music at night, weed smoking and other drug use, strangers coming in and out at all hours, no regular feeding, or changing water, litterbox rarely changed so they have started to pee and poop everywhere. They are truly stressed and unhappy. I am reaching out to you because I do not want to call animal control and have him end up in a shelter, as a blind cat it is even more terrifying. My ex boyfriend has agreed to let them go if I find a home and my neighbor will walk over and get them so the person picking up does not have to deal with him. I hope you have any ideas where I can turn to. I have already emailed all the shelters but I am hoping there are people that have connections to people looking to adopt or foster.

    Thank you,

    Madeleine Carlson

    Hi, are you considering having them flown to you and they live with you in Sweden, or is that out of the question?

    Where are they located at, city and state, it might narrow it down to as who could help. I'll pray for these sweet little ones to find a good home, only the best for them! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for trying!

    I suspect the cats are in Colorado. But can you narrow it down?

    Wow, I'm an idiot. I got so caught up in the poor cats that I didn't pay attention to the title of the thread . . . which clearly states Colorado. :(

    A town in the state would be very helpful.

    This very same text was posted at Craigslist yesterday, which seems to narrow it to Colorado Springs.

    I also found this, re: California

    I wonder if she ever gets back, and there’s no other options maybe someone could drive them from Colorado to Florida to be with you? I personally would be up to the task, but I am in Ontario so there’s extra hurdles. Would need to rush order my passport, etc.

    I sent her an email (to gmail) that I found on her Craigslist ad, asking her to check back in with us.

    Thank you for that sleuthing, @PushPurrCatPaws
    ...not to raise any false hope, but I'm checking with a group that has a list of people who foster cats here in Denver, --not too many miles north of colorado springs.

    Well, let's make it clear that my sleuthing was minimal and incomplete. I certainly still have more questions than answers, and I think a healthy dose of skepticism is good until more is known. It could be a tough or volatile or uncertain situation to wade into until you know more facts. Maybe we'll hear from the OP again, and soon!

    I hope the OP is okay, wherever she is, and the animals too. :alright:

    I have someone who would be able to foster these cats and get them adopted out.

    Oh nice, that’s great to hear!

    Let’s hope she either replies here quickly or to my email.

    You're not an idiot!
    You are someone who felt your blood rush to the head as soon as you have read the content of the post, as many of us would do in similar situations.
    If you're an idiot, I think that many of us are.

    No. You're not. You were focused on trying to help these cats.

    To the OP,
    I need to know if the location is definitely in or around Colorado Springs, south of Denver.
    If it is, the people who can take the cats here in Denver said they won't be ready for a few days, so there is a little time for us to work out details, if you still need us.
