Dozens of Cats/Kittens Were Removed from a Northwest, Washington, D.C. Home, Officials Called it an Extreme Case of Animal Hoarding

Dozens of cats/kittens were removed from a northwest, Washington, D.C. home, officials called it an extreme case of animal hoarding.

Two women who lived in a home in the 800 block of Decatur Avenue NW took in strays without getting them spayed or neutered, the Washington Humane Society said.

Sixty-three cats, including 27 kittens 1 month old or younger, were found in deplorable conditions inside the home and outside in a U-Haul van, officials said. The cats were underweight, overheated and suffering from various infections.

Officers removed 38 cats Tuesday evening and returned for the rest Wednesday. They are being evaluated.

They will be cared for by the Washington Humane Society/Washington Animal Rescue League until they're ready to be adopted.

The Pet Tree House will keep you updated on their availability for adoption.
