Over 40 cats removed from Alpharetta home after woman's death

ALPHARETTA, GA (CBS46) -

Fulton County Animals Services were called to a home in Alpharetta Monday to remove over 40 cats.

A woman called FCAS after her mother passed away and she couldn't take care of all the cats in the home on Rucker Road.

Animal services officers captured two "truckloads" of approximately 30 cats and are returned Tuesday to capture around 20 more.

According to FCAS officials, the cats were throughout the house and in the walls.

FCAS was initially given the impression that the owner of the home passed away a month ago, but discovered that she passed away in June 2012. The cats have been there since her death.

Animal services officers were required to wear Hazmat suits because cat feces was found six inches deep inside the house.

A veterinarian is providing care to the captured cats.
