Woman Found Living With 20 Cats Inside Virginia Beach, VA, Self-Storage Unit

A woman who recently lost her home was found living in a Virginia Beach, Va., self-storage unit with 20 cats. It’s unclear how long ago the woman had taken residence in the space. The cats were taken into custody by the city’s Animal Care and Adoption Center where they were “understandably scared” but in otherwise good health, according to a source.

The cats are being housed together at the center while they await adoption. The city doesn’t have a limit on how many cats a resident can own, according to Megan Conti, animal control supervisor, though it limits the ownership of dogs to four, unless the resident has a kennel license.

The self-storage facility wasn’t identified. It’s unclear if any charges will be brought against the woman who brought the cats to her unit.
