Wake County, NC – Two people are facing charges after a feline house of horrors was found at their residence on Cass Holt Road. As reported by ABC 11 News, investigators determined that Samuel Peri, 47, and Angela Honan, 52, owned the house where 22 ailing cats were living; 17 of those cats had to be euthanized. Investigators also found the bodies of 16 cats on the property.
Dr. Jenn Federico, with Wake County Animal Control, said the surviving cats were “all hiding and terrified” when rescuers entered the residence. Federico described the squalid conditions inside the residence, stating:
“There were feces on the countertops and on top of the refrigerator. There was garbage on the floor.”
Peri and Honan were booked into the Wake County Detention Center; they are facing multiple charges, including cruelty to animals, abandonment of animals and failure to vaccinate against rabies.
The surviving kittens are receiving care from a rescue facility.
