Rapid City Animal Control seized 19 cats and kittens from a house in North Rapid Thursday morning.

The animals were found after emergency services responded to a medical call for one of the house's adult residents, according to Animal Control officer Kent Brown. Two other adults and one child also live in the house.

The resident that needed medical attention was also the same resident who took in the animals, according to officials. She was taken to the hospital, according to officials.

"She was good hearted and could never say ‘no' when somebody walked up to the door," Brown said.

At least three cats ran away during the seizure. Brown has worked out an agreement with the residents that they will capture the cats, and he will return to collect them..." More
