59 cats seized in Chase

59 neglected and injured cats were seized from a property in Chase

A total of 59 neglected and injured cats were seized from a property in Chase, B.C.

According to the BC SPCA, the 47 adult cats and 12 kittens were being kept in an outdoor camper and a travel trailer and were suffering from a wide range of medical issues.

“The cats were being kept in a filthy environment, with feces everywhere and high levels of ammonia from the urine,” says Kathy Woodward, senior animal protection officer for the BC SPCA.

“There was dense mould in the trailer and camper and the animals did not have access to food or water.”

Woodward says the cats were thin and dehydrated and were suffering from eye infections, trauma and other issues.

The adult cats are currently being assessed and treated at SPCA branches in the Okanagan and Kootenays and the emaciated kittens are currently under veterinary care.

The SPCA will be recommending charges of animal cruelty in the case.
