Severely Ill and Dead Cats Allegedly Found at Home Deserve Justice

Target: Mr. Michael Walton, Scott County Attorney, Iowa

Goal: Investigate and ensure strict penalties for the individual allegedly responsible for the neglect and mistreatment of the cats, and enforce stronger animal welfare regulations.

In Davenport, Iowa, a 45-year-old woman named Emily Neece was arrested after Scott County Sheriff’s Deputies reportedly found severely ill and dead cats in her residence. Reportedly, deputies executed an eviction under a court order at her home on Rockingham Road and discovered the residence filled with garbage and rotting material, covered in fecal matter.

Court documents indicate that 12 cats in poor health were found in the residence. During the removal process by animal control, two deceased kittens were reportedly discovered along with three others suffering from serious medical conditions such as an injured eye and respiratory distress. Eight other cats were reportedly malnourished and showed signs of flea and parasitic infestations. Reportedly, there was no fresh water or food available for the animals.

Neece faces multiple charges, including five aggravated misdemeanors for animal neglect with serious injury or death, and eight serious misdemeanors for animal neglect with injury. This case underscores the urgent need for strict enforcement of animal welfare laws to prevent such neglect and ensure the well-being of animals. Take stringent measures to hold individuals accountable for alleged animal neglect and protect the welfare of the cats.
