ALBANY, Ore. (AP) - A 51-year-old woman has been charged with animal neglect after authorities seized 45 cats from her home in Albany. Linn County Sheriff Tim Mueller says deputies and the SafeHaven Humane Society raided the home of Jean Primrose on Saturday and found unsanitary conditions and a large number of cats that needed immediate medical care. He says officials found cat urine and feces on furniture, walls, clothing and on Primrose and her two elderly parents who also live there. A number of cats were suffering from urine scalding, ear and eye infections, malnourishment and dehydration. Primrose has been charged with 45 counts of second-degree animal neglect and has been released from custody. She relinquished ownership of the animals and the cats have been taken by the society for medical care and adoption placement. Copyright 2009 Associated Press. All rights reserved.
