French couple banned from keeping pets after keeping 159 cats in their home

A French couple from Nice received a one-year suspended sentence from keeping pets after mistreating 159 cats and seven dogs in their small apartment.French couple banned from keeping pets after keeping 159 cats in their home

The animals were found in terrible conditions last year, suffering from dehydration, malnutrition, and parasites.

The judge determined that the couple failed to care for the animals properly. As a result, they were banned from owning pets permanently and ordered to pay over €150,000 to animal rights charities.

Police discovered the animals during a dispute at the couple’s apartment, where they found excrement everywhere. Sadly, some of the cats and dogs died due to their poor health, and investigators even found the bodies of two cats and two dogs in a bathroom.

The woman, 68, claimed the animals were her life’s passion but admitted she had made mistakes. She started with her parents’ pets in 2018 and later took in stray cats from an abandoned building, leading to overpopulation.

A psychiatric evaluation diagnosed her with “Noah’s syndrome,” where she felt compelled to rescue animals despite being unable to care for them adequately. The couple had a previous case in 2014 for living in a small studio with numerous pets.
