MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Myrtle Beach police
have charged a 56-year-old woman with mistreatment of animals after
they seized 36 cats from her apartment.
The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported Thursday that Debra Susan Vroman was cited after her landlord reported she had too many cats and was being evicted.
A police report says none
of the cats had current rabies shots or had been seen by a veterinarian.
Police say Vroman asked to keep some of the cats, but gave them all to
animal control officers to be taken to the Humane Society for care.
Officers told Vroman she
would have to ask a judge if she wants any cats back, and agree to spay
or neuter them and provide proper medical care.
