INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) - For years, three colonies of friendly feral cats have been working at Hollywood Park racetrack, keeping mice out while jockeys brought the horses in.

But now they face eviction because the track's been sold, equipment is being auctioned off and sometime after Jan. 31, it will be demolished by developers.

Angela Carrigan says she and Sandy King have been working to trap and relocate the cats since the last race on Dec. 22. About 12 of the approximately 50 cats remain on the loose.

The cats are great mousers and most are spayed or neutered. To increase the odds of finding a home for the cats, Carrigan and King put out a plea for help with housing, fostering, trapping, moving and paying vet bills.
