More than two dozen
cats were rounded up on Tuesday from a house in the 1600 block of Main
Street in the Town of Porter, Porter County Animal Control said.
Officer Greg Nemeth told the Chesterton Tribune that the cats
belonged to the person who had been renting the house and had been left
there after that person’s eviction.
So far 25 cats have
been taken from the house but it’s likely “there are still a few more,”
Nemeth said. Live traps have been set.
the house were foul, Nemeth noted. “Very” foul. But on the whole the
cats--at least most of them--seemed to be healthy, although a few did look
“sickly,” he said.
The cats have been
taken to the Animal Shelter, where their “health and disposition” will be
evaluated. They will then be placed with a rescue group, Nemeth said.
