Clay Township The owner of a condemned home, where 39 cats were found in filthy conditions, will go to court Monday on animal neglect charges.
James Robinson was charged back in April, when the Ida Street house was discovered. The county ordered it to be demolished, and a contract was awarded for that work last week.
Robinson told NewsCenter 16 he slept elsewhere because of health issues, but stopped by the home every day. Only the animals were living inside.
Officers who entered had to use respirators. The floor was said to be covered in a slippery slime.
The humane society has spent thousands of dollars caring for the animals.
