A peek through some glass, spurs a Wichita woman to action. "I looked in this window and saw a dozen cats just crying out. I thought poor babies," said Joyce Eddington. She came across them almost three weeks ago on her way to an event at the Intrust Bank Arena. "We were walking by and I heard crying."
After that, she couldn't stop thinking about their little faces inside the abandoned building. "I told my husband we need to go back," she said. And that's what she's done every day since. She takes a bucket of food and jug of water and feeds the cats through a mail slot in the door.
The building where the cats are is old and falling apart. The city put a sticker saying it was condemned, so Eddington was scared something would happen to the cats. That's when she called Friends for Felines. "They said they would help me trap them and spay and neuter them and relocate them," she said.
