Last Thursday, the animal control divisions of the Calhoun County sheriff’s department and the Battle Creek Police Department went to a home in Athens, Michigan as part of an investigation into suspected animal cruelty. There, they found a 64 year-old woman living with over 100 cats.
The sheriff’s department told US News that there were 113 cats found “in various conditions of health and sanitation” and they were removed from the home and taken to the Battle Creek Animal Shelter. The woman was said to have been cooperative.
After removing the cats, the home was evacuated for the night so it could be properly ventilated. Health officials say the home is habitable, but tests found high levels of ammonia and methane as well as decreased oxygen levels.
The case remains under investigation and officials say charges are being sought against the homeowner.
