veterinarian said. He said the cats are “holed up” in the back of one of his cages and haven’t eaten much. He said that since they first came in yesterday, they have improved.
“I’m sure it would take a lot of care and attention to make them good pets,” he said.
Elliott said county workers found two cats Thursday afternoon, bringin to IO the number of cats left in the home. The cats were trapped in crude cages that were buried under piles of rubble in the home.
“We didn’t find any more in the house and we looked through all the rubble pretty good," he said. Elliott said he did not find any dead animals in the building. “But if there was something dead in there, you would probably never find it in all the rubble.”
County Sanitarian David Litke said he is considering declaring the house a health hazard and ordering it be destroyed. “There’s definite violation of the county health codes. There is rodent harborage and possible mosquite breeding sites,” he said.
