The Calgary Humane Society has been forced to destroy 40 cats found in a southwest Calgary home.
On Monday, a total of 53 animals were pulled out of a home on the 1600 block of 15 Ave. S.W.
Animal workers spent several days removing the cats from the home.
Most had serious health problems.
The remaining 13 are in quarantine, while vets and the society work provide medical attention.
A neighbor called police after not seeing the elderly woman who lived in the home for several days.
She was found on the kitchen floor, unable to get up.
The humane society continues to look for more of the woman's cats both in and around the home.
The elderly woman is recovering in hospital.
