Forty cats were removed from a home at East 60th Street.
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -
A landlord evicted his tenants after filth and animal waste cover nearly every surface of a home on East 60th Street.
Landlord Scott Scheib told WTOC that more than 40 cats were pulled from the home, and that animal control expects to find more – both dead and alive.
Scheib evicted his tenants Tuesday for non-payment of rent. He said he had no idea what was going on inside.
"They have destroyed this house," he said. "They told me that they only have three cats, and animal control pulled out over 40 cats now. My house is ruined, and the insurance company says they are not going to pay for it. They won't cover animal damage. I don't know if a lot of people know that."
Police haven't yet identified the couple, but say they're facing multiple city ordinance violations.
Scheib said the home has more than $12,000 in damages. He said the cats were mostly healthy. They've been taken to Chatham County Animal Control.
