A local pet adoption agency is trying to find homes for 15 cats and kittens found Wednesday morning inside a car parked at Ameristar Casino.
Officials at KC Pet Project said someone reported the stray animals to animal control officers in Kansas City.
Outside temperatures were in the high 70s to low 80s Wednesday morning.

According to a post on the organization’s Facebook page, the cats and kittens were taken to the agency for evaluation.
“Our team is evaluating them at this time, and we’ll be working to move the kittens into foster homes,” the post read.
KC Pet Project officials said in the post they’ve had their hands full caring for other animals and space is limited.
“We’ve already taken in over 20 new cats and kittens (Wednesday), and we’re at critical capacity,” the post read.
The organization is currently seeking foster homes for the new arrivals.
Anyone interested in fostering the cats or kittens should email firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the foster application.
