The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Police discovered the grizzly fate that had befallen over a hundred felines as well as also finding 57 other cats at a second nearby location after a second tip off suggesting some of the animals had been moved prior to the inspection.
SPCA Sgt Stacy Sanders said of the scene found at the location:
“”The cats were living in extremely horrible conditions. They were separated into two groups and locked into rooms with little to no ventilation. The floors were saturated in urine and faeces.
“Officers stayed about six hours to recover all the cats because an occupant in the house had lost count of how many were there.
“We had to go through every nook and cranny, pull apart every bed and chair.”
It is thought that the cats had been taken from the street.
Remarkably, charges have yet to be pressed.
