Sarah Duncan from the Broadmead Veterinary Clinic and another employee are headed to Edmonton on Thursday to pick up 40 cats.

The cats will be taken from Edmonton shelters to make room for the stray and surrendered pets of the Fort McMurray wildfire.

“There are more than 40, including nine ferals going to a barn,” said Jacqueline Albrecht with Cat’s Cradle Animal Rescue in Sidney. “The rest are seeking adoption with about six older cats, 20 kittens under eight weeks, and two or three pregnant cats.”

The group is currently seeking fosters for the animals. Cat’s Cradle does not have a facility for the cats.

“Everyone wants kittens but we have a 15 year old and a couple of diabetic and special needs cats that need a loving home,” she said.
