The Oakland County Animal Shelter & Pet Adoption Center says the animals were found after an Oakland County animal control officer went to the home in West Bloomfield Township last month to perform a welfare check on cats at the home. The agency says 60 of the cats have been euthanized because of severe illness or aggression.
The home was reportedly owned by two people who lived elsewhere. Prosecutors are expected to review the case for possible charges.
Many of the cats that were removed from the house had health issues including upper respiratory infections, fleas, skin infections, ear mites, and malnutrition.
