WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The White Plains Police Department and SPCA of Westchester helped a White Plains woman who was housing nearly 20 cats recently, according to a report from The Examiner .

The groups were responding to complaints of "odors coming from the woman's house," according to the report. The groups also received help from Westchester County Adult Services and the White Plains Building Department "since it appeared the woman might be having problems with removing trash from the residence as well as cleaning up after the cats,” according to the report.

SPCA Veterinarian Megan Caulfield told The Examiner that staff members "examined the 19 cats and provided them with antibiotics and appropriate vaccinations" and also neutered 11 of the male cats, according to the report.

“Nearly all of the cats were 10 years old or older,” said Caulfield in The Examiner report. “They had upper respiratory infections. Moving senior cats from the house would cause additional stress and probably more illness. We wanted to find a way to leave them with their caretaker, but make certain they received veterinary attention.”
