23 Cats Found In Self Storage Unit


We spotted an article on Florida Today about a woman that has been charged with multiple counts of cruelty to animals after 23 cats were found in a self storage unit. The message is clear be careful what you put in your self storage unit. The woman is being held on bail for $57,500, that is equivalent to approximately R770,000.

The article, titled M.I. woman charged after police find 23 cats in storage unit, describes how, "The Brevard County Sheriff's Office has taken a 43-year-old Merritt Island woman into custody after they found 23 cats being held in what they call "deplorable conditions" in a Merritt Island self-storage unit."
