SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - Eight of 69 cats taken in October from a Sioux City house are ready for adoption.
The Sioux City Journal reports that the cats, all males, are being made available after they tested negative for feline leukemia.
Cindy Rarrat with Sioux City Animal Control says another of the cats was adopted last week.
Rarrat says the nine cats were the lone survivors of 69 caught and trapped at a Sioux City house in October. Most were euthanized because they were too ill or unsocial for adoption.
Officials say the house was covered with feces and extremely unsanitary. About 20 dead cats were removed from the property.
Homeowner Mark Lanning has been charged with 14 counts of animal neglect, all misdemeanors. His case is still pending.
