Denton Animal Services rescued over 50 cats on Wednesday in a northern Denton home and the crews said the number could grow by the time they were done. Two of the cats had to be euthanized and many others were found with upper respiratory issues. They are continuing to assess the health issues at the cats come in.
Both the Denton Animal Services and the Humane Society of North Texas were involved in the rescue loading dozens of crates into the back of a truck. The Humane Society accepted 36 cats and 16 cats were taken to Linda McNatt Animal Care & Adoption Center. However, they were separated from the rest of the cats that were already there.
Authorities are still deciding what will happen with the rest of the cats and it is unclear as to whether the owner will be fined or face any action from the city.
