CORPUS CHRISTI - More than 20 cats found dead inside an abandoned home on Poenisch Drive will be examined for possible causes of death today.
Neighbors complaining about a huge roach problem in the neighborhood lead Animal Control to check out the home with overgrown grass and trees.
Inside they found the remains of the cats, plus thousands of roaches running around the property. Neighbors say the homeowner moved into a nursing home after her husband's death last year.
It's not clear how long the cats were locked up inside the home or if anyone was given the responsibility to keep an eye on the property.
