Animal advocates are looking for volunteers to adopt more than 120 cats found in a crowded and filthy home area in Pompano Beach.
David Bernstein, the homeowner, said the population of cats got out of control because he didn’t neuter his cats.
“It was getting to be so bad to sleep in the house every night with all of the cats,” Bernstein said, adding, “I simply made a mistake.”
Elizabeth Jones, of Operation Liberation, said the cats were living in such extreme filth that there was a bathtub full of feces and urine. Some of the cats were suffering from upper respiratory infections.
“What the residents are living in was pretty horrific … They were sad when we took the cats, but they knew that this was the best thing,” Vlasek said.
As of Thursday afternoon, there were still 50 cats that needed to be removed from the home.
