Back in March, 115 cats (as well as a chinchilla and rabbit) were rescued from a rural Minnesota property. They'd been living in crowded, unsanitary conditions with insufficient food and health care.

The Animal Humane Society took them in, giving each a medical exam, food, a behavioral evaluation, and vaccines. The nonprofit said they'd work to make the felines available for adoption.

A month later, nearly three quarters of the cats have been adopted by families and are living in a new home.

The Animal Humane Society said last week 84 of the rescued cats from that rural property have been adopted.

The organization also shared some of the stories in a blog post, including the "professional cuddler" Bruce.

"He curled up on his new mom’s lap and never left. He’s been living the good life since April 12," the Humane Society wrote.

Of course, the nonprofit says more cats from that rescue will become available.

As the cats come up for adoption, the humane society posts them on its special projects page, featuring animals that were brought to the organization due to "extraordinary circumstances." That includes  unsanitary conditions and lack of proper food.

Animal Humane Society says it takes in all animals surrendered to it, regardless of age, health, or behavior, and in 2018 placed 95 percent of all animals into homes.

"Due to severe or untreatable illnesses or untreatable behavior issues, we sometimes face the difficult decision to euthanize an animal — but only when we’ve exhausted all other options," Animal Humane Society says.
