A South Florida man is facing animal cruelty charges after authorities say he dropped off 40 cats suffering from a variety of medical issues at an animal shelter which had to euthanize several of the pets. Patrick Francis Franey, 60, was taken into custody Tuesday on 40 criminal charges after he dropped the cats off at the Marathon Animal Shelter in February, Monroe County State Attorney's Office officials said. Authorities said Franey, of Homestead, called the shelter and said he was being evicted and could no longer care for the cats. The shelter thought he was talking about two cats but when he arrived at the shelter he had 40 cats. Shelter staffers and veterinarian found the cats were soaked with urine or had matted hair due to feces, were emaciated and dehydrated, and most were scratching and shaking. Many had significant medical issues including growing tumors in the mouths, fecal and urine scalding, severe untreated fight wounds and pneumonia, investigators said.

By Joan Morris | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: May 18, 2018 at 7:00 am | UPDATED: May 18, 2018 at 7:02 am DEAR JOAN: My neighbors allow their cat to roam free. We have tried to keep him out because they won’t fix him and he sprays everywhere, and now he has a disease, feline herpesvirus. What can I do? I know what to do for my cat, but is there anything I can do to make my neighbors pay for treatment or something?

We’re moving in less than two months, and this has to happen. I will save her, but is there any way to make the neighbors pay retribution?
