COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Animal control officers rescued 28 cats from a motel room in Columbia after receiving a complaint about the smell. Animal control supervisor Molly Aust said the cats were found Wednesday in a room at a Motel 6. She says the floor of the room was covered with a tarp, which was covered with cat waste and cat litter.

A 52-year-old woman who lived in the room was issued a summons for violating a city ordinance that limits Columbia residents to owning only four dogs or cats older than 6 months.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that the cats were mostly oriental shorthairs, about 7 months to 1 year or more in age.

The cats were taken to the Central Missouri Humane Society, which said most of them were in good condition.
