BOSTON (WHDH) - Bay Staters looking to add a furry friend to their homes are in luck.

The 42 cats MSPCA-Angell and Northeast Animal Shelter evacuated from Florida ahead of Hurricane Ian are about to be ready for adoption.

The bunch includes Lunar, a 4-year-old, one-eyed tabby, and Misty, a pregnant 1-year-old cat. Pictured above are 6-month-old Melvin (left) and 11-week-old kittens Lori and Lilly (right).

Some of the cats picked up from Florida will be available for adoption starting Oct. 1 in both Salem and Boston. The other cats will be adoptable next week, except pregnant Misty, who will be ready to adopt when her kittens are also adoption-ready.

Interested adopters can check and for updates. Those interested in donating to help offset the cost of caring for the cats can do so at

The organizations said they hope to have more information on the next transport soon.
