The cats were all of varying ages, but the oldest one, who was 15 years old, was in the worst condition of all. The poor cat would have needed multiple surgeries in order to survive, and it was eventually determined that she just wasn't strong enough for it - and so, much to everyone's dismay, she was put down.
"She was severely emaciated, had abscessed wounds, worms, fleas and needed surgery. She was not able to go through any treatment in her condition. We are devastated by her loss," Joseph's Legacy wrote on its Facebook page.
