SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — San Diego Humane Society officers rescued 21 cats living in filthy conditions in a South Bay home on Tuesday.

SDHS said Wednesday officers were working to recover more from the home.

The cats were recovered from the home and are suffering from a range of health conditions, including malnutrition, fleas, upper respiratory infections, and some eye traumas that were left untreated.

Wednesday, one of those cats was scheduled to undergo emergency eye surgery.

Humane Society staff say the cats will be cared for at the shelter but did not say whether they would eventually be offered for adoption.

SDHS did not say whether charges were being filed against the homeowner.
