Iowa City animal center crowded with cats

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The Iowa City Animal Care and Adoption Center is full of felines- 143 to be exact.

The large number of cats are the result in part of 27 cats being seized from an Oxford farm after an owner failed to care for them.

Those animals will take some time to be nursed back to health.

Meanwhile, the center hopes to find foster homes for the other cats- which are now living in crowded conditions.

"We have a lot of animals and we need a lot of help, not only to care for them, but we need a lot of help finding them new homes," said Misha Goodman, director of the Iowa City Animal Care and Adoption Center.

The city's animal care center is offering the cats for half price.

Any cat six years of age or older is free.
