MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Minnesota humane society is trying to figure out who keeps leaving litters of kittens at their door.

This is the third time this year officials think the same person has dropped off a crate of kittens and some food at the Brown County Humane Society in New Ulm.

“The same situation, they’ve been dropped off in a small cat carrier along with a small bag of cat food,” said Gerald Woodley with the Brown County Humane Society.

Woodley hopes people will adopt the kittens, and he also hopes whoever is dropping the cats off will change their ways. So far, that person has dropped off 35 cats in the past three years.

“From an economical standpoint, it would be better if we would spay the mother and father for them versus having, you know, 10-15 cats a year being dropped off at our facility,” he said.

While the kittens are welcome at the humane society, the $5,000 in cat care fees have been hard to foot with the society’s $100,000 yearly budget.

Woodley said that if there’s anyone out there who wants a kitten, they are ready for adoption. And for the person who didn’t want the kittens, he wants to tell him/her that the humane society will pay for the spay and neuter of the parent cats.

If you’d like to adopt a cat, here’s the Brown County Humane Society website. You can also contact them through their Facebook page.

Woodley says the kittens are all light-colored, with markings.
