Authorities say they temporarily evacuated a home in southern Michigan after a woman was found living with more than 100 cats.
The animal control divisions of the Calhoun County sheriff's department and the Battle Creek Police Department went to the home in Athens on Thursday as part of an investigation into suspected animal cruelty.
The sheriff's department says the 113 cats were found "in various conditions of health and sanitation" and they were removed from the home.
Investigators say the 64-year-old woman living with them was cooperative.
The Humane Society of Huron Valley in Plymouth says it's in desperate need of people to adopt nearly 50 cats that were rescued from a hoarder. Investigators found the cats in an elderly man's rundown trailer home, where remains of dead animals had been stored in plastic containers. The man has been relocated.
Dozens of cats have been found at a rural Genesee County house, but the 60-year-old homeowner has yet to be located. Gaines Township police Chief Mark Schmitzer tells The Flint Journal that more than 30 cats were at the house Monday and as many as 70 were on the property.
