Thursday, January 26, 2012
AUBURN, Wash. (AP) -- King County Animal Control workers have seized more than 70 cats that had been living in a small camper in Auburn, Wash.
KING TV reports (http://is.gd/ttx5s2 ) that the cats and one dog were inside Jerry Reynolds' camper on the back of his small pick-up truck. A neighbor reported the camper parked near a medical center.
Reynolds says he has been living in the camper for the last five weeks to be closer to his girlfriend, who is hospitalized.
He tells KING he is a breeder from Moses Lake and had no choice but to take his cats with him.
The cats were removed Thursday to be examined by veterinarians.
