Cats removed from St. Anthony mobile home euthanized
The 120 cats rescued from a St. Anthony mobile home were euthanized, The Animal Humane Society said.
The cats had diseases ranging from feline AIDS to herpes to ringworm, spokeswoman Deb Balzer said.
The cats were living in the 500-square-foot mobile home; the boards and the doors were rotting from feces and urine.
The couple, Stanley and Cheryl Saradis, slept on a mattress in the kitchen surrounded by the animals.
"Animal control officers say they removed 72 cats from the couple's previous home in Coon Rapids in 2002," reported the Associated Press.
St. Anthony police and the Animal Humane Society were tipped off anonymously.
