Over 60 cats removed from home, van after being found with squatters

WASHINGTON (AP) — Animal rescue officials recovered armloads of cats and kittens from a vacant house in the nation's capital after a real estate agent found two women living there illegally and called police.

Spokesman Matt Williams with the city's Humane Society and Animal Rescue League says the two women were squatting in the northwest Washington home with more than 60 cats. About 20 of the animals were inside the house, which was filled with feces, and the rest were being kept in a U-Haul van parked out back.

Williams says animal rescuers removed 44 cats and kittens on Tuesday, but the two unidentified women had already disappeared with about 20 others.
