Last week, Animal Control officers removed 129 cats, four horses, four dogs and three rabbits from a house in New Mexico. There may be more cats in the house because investigators found cats living in the walls and are trying to get them out.
One of the cats died on the way to the animal shelter, and the rest of the 128 cats had to be euthanized because they all were extremely sick and “their illnesses ranged from feline AIDS and leukemia to untreated wounds from fighting with other cats, undernourishment, respiratory problems and some were unable to stand”.
A women was arrested in this case and the investigation is continuing. The other animals found are expected to recover.
