100-plus Cats Found in "Deplorable Conditions"
Animal Control officials in Walker County, Ga. are investigating a possible case of animal abuse.
Neighbors reported that they noticed an "overwhelming odor" coming from the home on Carolyn Drive.
Curtis Patterson, spokesperson for Walker County Animal Control said they have found "more than 100 cats in a home in deplorable conditions."
Patterson said the woman who lives there "is fully cooperating with officials." He says the woman rescued 12 cats after she moved here following Hurricane Katrina, and allowed them to multiply.
The cats are being taken to the Walker County Animal Shelter. He said some of the cats will be adoptable, however some "are NOT adoptable."
Rescue groups will join Animal Control tomorrow to take the remaining, adoptable pets.
The woman has been cited. We will continue to update you as this story develops.
