NEWPORT-A welfare check on a woman resulted in the discovery by officers of 17 cats stuck in cages and living in their own feces and urine, Deputy Sheriff Hollis Emmons reported.

Emmons reported that on Tuesday, Oct. 30, he went to a Point Pleasant community residence to do a welfare check on a woman for Adult Protective Services, when he noticed the cats living in cages and in their waste.

The woman was transferred to the emergency room at Newport Medical Center.

Another adult signed over all of the animals to the Newport Animal Shelter, Emmons reported.
