50 cats found in abandoned North Tonawanda home


Niagara Gazette — Lewis said that because they animals were fed and given water they were in fair condition, though two of the SPCA employees responsible for caging the cats described 6- to 8-inches of feces around the interior of the home.

"The conditions in the house were pretty bad," Lewis said. "My driver said there wasn't a square inch that you could walk on where there wasn't feces." 

Yet, despite the deplorable living conditions, Lewis expects most of the cats will eventually be adopted. 

"It is hard to tell at this point," she said. "They went through a very traumatic capture process. As they are here and we clean out there cages and we medicate them we may become social again. But it could be a couple of weeks before we have true picture as to which one's are actually feral." 

In the meantime, Capozzi said the home has been boarded up and the city will "keep it sealed" until an future date.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
