Pinellas County Animal Control removed 97 cats from a house in Tarpon Springs Thursday after neighbors complained about an odor.
The city's building department condemned the house at 759 Seminole Blvd. Tarpon Springs police spokeswoman Sgt. Barbara Templeton said three adults lived at the residence, but officials withheld their names due to histories of mental illness. She said criminal charges were unlikely.
At least one cat inside the home had died.
Welch Agnew, assistant director of veterinary services for Pinellas Animal Services, said the cats would be examined by a veterinarian before being sent to local shelters, including the SPCA Tampa bay and the Tampa Bay Humane Society.
