PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Animal control officers have removed 69 cats from a Rhode Island apartment.

Police say they were called to the house in Providence on Thursday morning. The animal control department had received a complaint about a tenant on the second floor hoarding cats.

Animal control officers helped by the Rhode Island Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Providence Animal Rescue League took the cats from the apartment.

The tenant has not been charged with any crime.

A police report describes the apartment as “dirty.”

WJAR-TV first reported the discovery of the cats in the apartment. It says a building inspector has condemned the house.
