|Please don't be sick over this, the majority of shelters out there I'd say 99% of them aren't too desirable. They look awful for a cat to be in that situation. However, you are taking these kitties out of a much worse situation. There's no way your mother, by the sound of her own situation, could take care of that many cats. When that happens they begin to suffer greatly. What I mean is they come down with serious infections like heart worms, UTIs, eye infections, mites, respiratory problems that would go unnoticed in an environment with many cats. These diseases result in slow, painful death (or some just cause other crippling problems.)
So even if it seems that you did a horrible thing, if there is a staff veterinarian or even one that makes routine visits that is a great improvement. What did you see there that made you have second thoughts? Maybe one of us can put your mind at ease.
