More Than 90 Cats Removed From Southeast Memphis Home

Wednesday afternoon, animal control officers were called to a home in the 7000 block of Cannondale Cove in Southeast Memphis. They removed 91 cats.

The woman who owns the cats contacted officers from the hospital saying she needed help taking care of them. Neighbors say they had no idea there were so many.

Chuck Martin said, “We never had any clue, like I said, I'd see ‘em in the windows when I was cutting grass and that was it...two weeks ago I asked her how many she had. She said, ‘a lot.’ ”
