**NAT SOUND - DOG WHINING**

This dog is now looking for a new home -

after Lee County Domestic Animal Services took it in along with 20

other animals.

All of them found in the same filthy Southwest Cape Coral home.

34:15 34:18

It was just too many of them and we were trying to do our best to get

rid of them

The owner of those pets opened up to NBC2 - on the condition we not

use her name or face.

She admitted things had become out of hand.

In all, animal services took in 15 cats, including 3 newborn kittens -

three dogs, two rabbits and a snake-

found in disgusting living conditions they classify as hoarding.

Ria Brown

Lee County Domestic Animal Services

12:52 12:58

More often than not they aren't cooperative so in this case it was a

good thing that as did realize that she needed help

STAND UP

29:56 30:08

Animal services knew to come to this home because they received an

anon tip that there was a foul odor coming from the house and when

they actually got on scene that smell Made the animal control officer

sick

38:27 38:31

when you have that many cats things are going to get out of control

The pet owner is accepting help and did voluntarily give those animals up.

She says she's not a hoarder, but just couldn't afford to spay her cat.

37:48 37:56

Its not like we were bringing in one animal after another after

another it was one single cat that got out 3 different times and had 3

litters of cats

Animal services says there is help out there for pet owners in her position -

and they just need to ask.

As for these 21 pets,

34:35

They're like my babies you know.:37

both animal services and their former owner hope they find better homes soon.

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

BEAUTIFUL WEEKEND AHEAD

It was a great end to the work week across Southwest Florida Friday, with plenty of sun & highs in the 70s. With mostly clear skies this evening, temps will fall quickly into the 50s. Overnight lows tonight will again be cool, with numbers in the low 50s in the urban corridor and mid to upper 40s inland.

The great weather continues into the weekend. We'll see a heavy dose of sun all day Saturday, low humidity values and warmer highs in the upper 70s. An afternoon sea breeze will again develop, with cooler highs along the coast.

Sunday will also feature beautiful weather. Expect another day of total sunshine with even warmer highs in the low 80s.

The quiet and dry weather continues into next week. We'll see just a few more clouds on Monday, with highs in the mid 80s. Tuesday will feature partly cloudy skies, with highs in the mid 80s.

Things begin to change mid to late week. Wednesday will be dry, but more of a blend of sun & clouds is expected. Highs on Wednesday will again be in the mid 80s.

A powerful storm system will begin to move in Thursday & Friday. This system will bring a good chance of showers and storms across the area, with cooler weather to close next week. Return to index of stories...
