SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Many of the 134 cats rescued from a Lakeside apartment are up for adoption in County animal shelters. 

Sheriff’s deputies who were conducting a welfare check at the apartment Thursday discovered the cats and called animal services.

Most of the animals appear to be healthy and well-fed, though stand-offish at the moment.

The adoptable animals are at the shelters in Bonita and Carlsbad.  All have been checked out by the veterinary staff and given flea and worm medicines.  Each will be spayed or neutered and chipped before adoption.  The adoption fee is $54 per cat or kitten.
