In a heartwarming rescue operation in Michigan, nearly 100 cats and kittens have been freed from a hoarder’s clutches, eagerly awaiting their new loving homes.
The Brownstown Township Police Department sprung into action after receiving a call from concerned neighbors about a pungent urine smell emanating from an elderly man’s Downriver home. What they stumbled upon left them flabbergasted – a plethora of feline companions dwelling within.
Body camera footage captured the officers’ incredulous reactions as they continued to unearth more cats from the premises. Initially, Animal Control estimated around 50 animals, but the final count revealed close to 100 cats and kittens. Surprisingly, these furry friends were found to be in reasonably good health, with ample food and water to sustain them.

However, the elderly man had surpassed the local ordinance’s limit, which permits only three animals per household. As a result, he may face fines, but commendably, he is fully cooperating with the authorities.
The rescued and utterly adorable cats and kittens were promptly transferred to the local Brownstown Township animal shelter. The dedicated shelter staff has been working tirelessly to provide care for these precious pets, but the surge in numbers has stretched their capacity to its limits.
