Child Advocates Upset About 5-year-old Living With 43 Animals

More controversy surrounding the apartment where 42 cats and a dog were found.

Mobile police and animal control officers responded to Country Club Woods Apartment complex yesterday after several complaints.

Two women and a 5-year old girl were living there among all the animals in that apartment.

Now, the Executive Director of the Child Advocacy Center is speaking out about the case.

He says he can't remember a situation where this many animals were living in such a tight space, with a small child.

Pat Guyton is the Executive Director of the Child Advocacy Center in Mobile.

When he heard 42 cats and a dog were living in a one bedroom apartment with a 5-year-old child, he was disgusted.

"It's upsetting. It's a very unhealthy environment. Cats carry certain diseases that a child can pick up such as Cat-scratch disease, Salmonella, Roundworm," said Guyton.
