"Eight cats pulled from police seizure"

From The Journal

"RACINE — Eight cats were removed from a home in the 1600 block of Deane Boulevard during a police seizure Wednesday afternoon, according to Angela Speed, vice president of communication for the Wisconsin Humane Society.

"The house, located at 1608 Deane, had a sign posted from the City of Racine Health Department that read: 'This unit can not be used for human habitation, occupancy or use.'

"Of the eight cats, three were kittens and five were adults, Speed said. The cats are currently in the custody of the Wisconsin Humane Society.

"'We have the cats in our (Racine County) facility and are taking care of them,' Speed said.

"The owner of the house appeared to have taped a note on the door before the police seizure. The note read, 'Health Department will be here 7-6-16 approx. noon for inspection plus animal removal. No one is in the house until then. Thanks, Owner.'

"Attempts to reach police and Health Department officials Wednesday for elaboration were unsuccessful."

Hooray.  Better they raid cat houses rather than pot houses.
