60 cats taken from Connecticut home in ‘deplorable condition’

60 cats taken from Connecticut home where owner was trying to run rescue.

WTNH reports that police found the animals in Wolcott Friday.

Sgt. Patrick Malloy says authorities received complaints from neighbors about an odor coming from the residence and bags of garbage containing cat feces that littered the property. He says the inside is “unlivable.”

Police say the owner was trying to run a cat rescue and may face animal cruelty charges. Several cats were underweight and dehydrated. All of the animals are being checked out.

One cat was found dead in a freezer, but officers believe it was euthanized and didn’t die from the conditions in the house.
