Sixty cats have been removed from a home in Port Orange, Florida, after police officials were contacted with an animal complaint and a mention of a mentally ill person.
The house, located on Riverside Drive, had an uninhabitable sign posted on it. However, a woman and her cats were residing inside. The woman was taken for a mental evaluation.
Police released little information about the incident, as an investigation is ongoing. The condition of the cats has not been identified. The owner, a 49-year-old woman, was taken into custody for a mental evaluation under the Baker’s Act, which allows police to take people into custody if they may be a danger to themselves or to others.
