Police seize 73 cats from home in Clinton, Iowa

CLINTON, Iowa — Dozens of cats have been removed from a home in Clinton and turned over to a shelter where they are being fed, treated and will soon be put up for adoption.

Seventy-three cats were removed from a home earlier this week after Clinton police discovered the situation.

The cats were taken to the Clinton Humane Society. Shelter operations manager Sandi Bartels said on Thursday that the cats were hungry and infested with fleas but have friendly natures and should be easy to adopt.

Police say Margaret Rettkowski of Clinton was cited for failing to license her cats and having too many of the animals.

She says she kept so many cats because nobody wanted them.
