DES MOINES, Iowa — Inside out and outside in — up high, down low.

“They’re all over you!” says volunteer, Hannah Banes.

And under you, among, around, even on our camera!

“Thirty-six of them,” says Martha Wittkowski, director of the Animal Lifeline shelter in Des Moines. “That’s a lot of cats!”

Too many for Animal Lifeline.  Fall is always a busy season, but this is the fullest it’s been.

“We’re turning special needs cats away right now because we don’t have any room to help them,” says Wittkowski.

And the room will only get tighter as the babies grow into kittens, the kittens into cats, and the cats into, well, hopefully a new family will come calling.

“We need adoptions,” says Banes.

“When people adopt from us,” Wittkowski adds, “they help two—the one that they’re taking home and the one that we can bring in then because we have space.”
