Over 4 dozen cats! That's how many one woman had in her davenport mobile home.
In Davenport, a maximum of 3 cats are allowed per home.
So when the Humane Society was asked to help a woman give away some of her cats, they were shocked to find she had 50 living in her trailer.
"I think that's way too many for a little trailer, they should only have 1 or 2, I would think," said Gilbert Cole, a Lake Canyada Mobile Home resident.
Gilbert Cole lives in the lake Canyada mobile home community.
And he says the area was swarming with cats.
"Within a day's time, I'd probably see about 30 or 40."
The woman who owned all the cats must have thought so too.
She was actually the one to call animal control for help.
"We did go out there, we did pick up 12 cats, the owners were supposed to bring more to us. They are working with 2 or 3 agencies trying to find homes for these cats as well," says Pam Arndt, the executive director of HSSC.
Officials say the woman was cooperative, providing names and ages for each one of them.
She won't be facing any charges, and her cats are now being taken care of at multiple shelters around the QC, including the humane society of Scott County.
"They have to go through a health assessment, they have to go through a behavior assessment and as long as they pass both of those then we can go ahead and put them up for adoption, otherwise depending on the health or the assessment we may not be able to put them up for adoption," said Arndt.
