Rally to save cats trapped by Windermere fire

    In the month since the Windermere Court Apartments caught fire, most residents have found a new place to live. But some feline tenants are sticking around. City Kitties is hosting a rally Saturday to help draw attention to the distressed cats that owners can’t get access to.


    As West Philly News reports, plenty of cats are still alive, well and wearing their collars in the gutted building, but former residents have been told the building will be demolished without anyone having a chance to get back in.

    The City Kitties organization, which has already helped reunite several Windermere cats with their owners, says people have been in and out of the apartment complex as recently as yesterday and that there’s no reason the cats can’t be saved.
