Seventy-eight cats!!! That’s what Sedalia police found in a 941-square-foot home yesterday. Also on the property “many other cats and kittens were buried”.
The animals were discovered Wednesday after police received a tip about unhealthy animals.
Most of the cats in the small home were ill and some died despite receiving care.
And, dead kittens were found in bags inside the house and 27 cats were buried in the back yard. Police said 37-year-old Ferdinand M. Bucayan and 59-year-old Teodora Dalumpines were taken to the Pettis County Jail on suspicion of animal abuse and neglect.
