A Leeds Housing Tenant, one Ms Jackie Silcox (reportedly single) has been warned by her council that living with 21 cats in her one-bedroom flat violates her tenancy agreement. Faced with eviction unless she re-houses 19 of her pack, she stands defiant:
“I don’t know how it started to be honest, but I’ve been taking in cats for over 20 years.
“I had my own cats and people started bringing them because they knew I was a cat lover and wouldn’t turn any cat away.
“Once they are all fed and given a bit of love they all settle down.
“If I lose the cats I will live on the streets with them.”
A sad situation indeed, but at least Ms Silcox will likely land on her feet.
