Dixfield, ME, United States -- Brenda Jarvis (cq) is swarmed by the cats of the house as she puts food out at a home that takes in stray cats in Dixfield, ME on Monday, April 25, 2016. When Barbara Thorpe died in 2002, she left most of her $200,000 estate to care for the town's stray cats. But since then, only a few thousand dollars have gone for food, shelter, and veterinary care. But $22,000 has gone to the estate's trustees, and $16,000 has gone to lawyers. (Yoon S. Byun for The Boston Globe) Slug: 27dixfield Reporter: Brian MacQuarrie LOID: 8.2.2717803609
