This is bad news for cat lovers, Police found 76 unhealthy cats and four dead ones in the womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s apartment when they arrived to mediate a dispute with a downstairs neighbor, Officer Jackie Bezart said Tuesday. She said the two women were being held for psychiatric evaluation.Neighbor Mary Cuevas told KCAL-TV that cockroaches had swarmed from the womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s apartment into her own unit.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I was at my wits end about this, so I yelled out my window that they were filthy pigs,Ã¢â‚¬Â? she said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“And so they called the police and said I was harassing them.Ã¢â‚¬Â?
Lt. Michelle Quigley of the cityÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s animal control department, which was called to remove the cats, said responding officers found Ã¢â‚¬Å“bags and bags of just trash and defecation, urine, insects, floor-to-ceiling.Ã¢â‚¬Â?
