Authorities seize 88 sick, malnourished cats

YPSILANTI TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say they seized 88 sick and malnourished cats from an Ann Arbor-area home in a suspected hoarding case.

The Humane Society of Huron Valley says the animals were rescued this week from a home in Washtenaw County’s Ypsilanti Township. The group got several tips about the home and found the cats on Tuesday night.

The group says the home had feces, flies and garbage inside. Cats were found throughout the house.

The Humane Society says officials are assessing each cat and some have health problems related to the home’s condition. A Friday, Saturday and Sunday adoption event is planned to help make room for the cats.

No charges have been brought, but court action is expected.
