CLINTON, Iowa (AP) — Dozens of cats have been removed from a home in Clinton and turned over to a shelter where they are being fed, treated and will soon be put up for adoption.
The Quad-City Times reports (http://bit.ly/18cTNRC ) 73 cats were removed from a home earlier this week after Clinton police discovered the situation.
The cats were taken to the Clinton Humane Society. Shelter operations manager Sandi Bartels says Thursday the cats were hungry and infested with fleas but have friendly natures and should be easy to adopt.
Police say Margaret Rettkowski, of Clinton, was cited for failing to license her cats and having too many of the animals.
She says she kept so many cats because nobody wanted them.
