"The Cat Lady" Finally Gets Charged


Over 100 cats and potentially millions of innocent ear mites were euthanized last week after police hauled them out of a Twin Falls house that reportedly didn't smell very nice at all. Janet Rasmussen, owner of Rocky Mountain Cat Resort, was charged with 57 counts of animal cruelty after the Twin Falls Sheriff's Department raided the facility and found 323 felines living in filthy conditions. We'll spare you the accounts of the "Dead Room" from the Twin Falls Times-News--suffice it to say, it sounded really, really grody. But if cats who have survived grody misfortune are your thing, you're in luck. The Idaho Humane Society has announced that "many" of the cats will be put up for adoption as soon as their condition improves. Just don't buy them all at once.
