Manchaca TX (near Austin): Approximately 20 Cats Need Placement

Jennifer Frank Hayes spearheads A Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/ColonyOfCatsNeedHomes devoted to getting these cats placed. "We have photo albums for each of the individually identified cats and will post any status updates. I will be on top of things, as I'll be feeding them on Tuesdays. Thank you for caring. Please like "Orphan Cat Colony - owner died" at this link and share it with others who may adopt/help"

Jennifer's summary posted on Facebook on 10/7/14:
An elderly gentleman in Manchaca, Texas passed away leaving behind roughly 55 cats. Linda Alvarez, a kind neighbor, has taken over feeding them. However,
the next-of-kin wants to sell the property, so homes for the cats are needed ASAP. Some are friendly, some are wary, and some are feral. Even though they don't have ear tips, all but one are fixed. Sorry I only met them this morning before work, after a huge rain storm, so images aren't the best and many of the cats didn't show up. If interested in any of the cats, please call Linda at 512-947-0966. Please share this album with others in the Austin area who may be interested in inside or outside cats. Seriously, they all need new homes.

They're not named, so here's the list of those different cats I've seen so far:

- Cream domestic medium hair with bad eye - wary, but I believe can warm up
- Brown tabby domestic short hair - wary, but I believe can warm up
- Black & white #1 domestic short hair (mostly black face) - wary, but I believe can warm up
- Black & white #2 domestic short hair (has more white on right side of face) - very wary

- Brown tabby domestic short hair polydactyl toes - very wary
- Gray and white domestic short hair - very friendly
- Dilute calico domestic short hair - wary, but warms up
- Brown tabby with white domestic short hair (not neutered) - wary, but warms up
- Silver tabby domestic medium hair - very wary
- Brown tabby with white domestic short hair (wobbly) - very wary
