BULLHEAD CITY–Nearly 80 cats were seized from a Bullhead City home on Tuesday afternoon following a tip to animal welfare.

Bullhead City Police spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said officers with the Animal Care & Welfare received the tip on April 27 regarding a home in the 2500 block of Country Club Place.

“So far, there have been 79 cats removed from the home,” said Fromelt. “There were some dead cats found and most were feral and sick.”

Fromelt said about 20 of the cats have since been taken to the Low Cost Spay & Neuter Clinic in Kingman to help them get adopted.

The owner was not cited, Fromelt added, due in part with her cooperating with the Animal Care & Welfare officers.

No further information was available.

      It wasn’t intentional. She reached out for help and I fixed 50 or 60, and she paid a lot on her own & a couple other cat lovers helped. She just was sick and unable to care for them. Her heart was in the right place.

    We have a neighbor on Citrus that feeds feral cats, but not that many. They get on our roof all of the time and tease our dogs. Several neighbors have called animal control in the past couple of years, but he denied feeding them. We tried talking to him but he just got very upset, so we gave up. Trying to figure out what to use to keep them away. Animal Control suggested moth balls, but can’t put those on the roof.

    “This is an old woman with a very huge house three or 4000 ft.² .
    She would take any cat anybody didn’t have a home for and then she fell victim to cancer.
    She couldn’t get them spayed and neutered fast enough and while she was very tired from her treatment they had many kittens.
    She is probably cooperating because her health is very poor and can’t take care of them.”
