Charges Laid In Cat Hoarding Case

The London Humane Society says charges have now been laid in a cat hoarding case.

The charges follow the recent seizure of 28 cats from a London home.

Edward Mantz, 54, of London is charged with causing distress, failing to provide suitable and adequate sanitary conditions, and failing to provide necessary care.

The Humane Society says some of the cats that were seized were pregnant females that have since given birth to kittens.

Executive Director Judy Foster says most of the cars are in good shape now.

“We expect that some of them will be available for adoption very soon,” says Foster. “The kittens are still nursing so they won’t be availabe for another seven to eight weeks.But we’re hoping most of the cats will be available for adoption in a very short time.”

Foster says they are still looking for financial donations to help care for the cats. She says a recent appeal in the wake of the seizure resulted in very generous donations of food and litter.
