MERIDEN — An animal shelter in Meriden is facing what they are calling an emergency situation, after they found out about 20 cats living in a car.

The Meriden Humane Society said that the cats are mostly okay, a few have respitory issues, but that’s treatable. Some of the cats also are pretty thin.

The cats are eating very well according to the shelter, and they are being fed high quality food with nutrients to increase their weight.
