Two elderly Brigham City brothers took in a single cat a few months ago. Not long afterward, they brought in four more. Then the kitties began breeding and, in a few months, the number of cats had increased to 40 and the situation in and outside of the apartment had gotten out of hand.
After looking over things, Brigham City Animal Control invited the Salt Lake-based Utah Animal Adoption Center to Box Elder County on Friday morning to help solve the problem.
"There were cats everywhere," said Lindsay Ortega of the Utah Animal Adoption Center. "They were inside and outside. They were anywhere from five weeks old to young adults."
