City officials seized more than 50 cats from an unidentified Independence man’s home Tuesday.


Independence Health Department Director Larry Jones said despite the high volume of cats living under one roof, the animals are in good health and friendly but had made the home unsafe.


Animal Services officials and a veterinarian examined the cats.


More information will be available in Friday’s Examiner.
