More than 50 cats found in Halifax apartment

The Disaster Animal Response Team of Nova Scotia says more than 50 cats have been removed from a one bedroom apartment in Halifax.

The team was contacted by the landlord on Friday and with the co-operation of the tenant, 51 cats — ranging from kittens to adults — were removed from the home.

Spokeswoman Catherine Stevens says there were several sets of kittens, some that were born just a few days ago, and another cat who may be pregnant.

Stevens says all the cats were in good health.

She says a temporary shelter has been set up, where the animals will be cared for over the next few days.

The cats will also be spayed and neutered before going to the SPCA for adoption.
