ATHENS, Ala. (AP) — Two kittens will soon be offered for adoption after they were rescued from the home of an Alabama man charged with 22 counts of animal cruelty.
Police say 48-year-old Ronald Golden told officers he stomped and strangled kittens he bought using the website Craigslist. Police arrested Golden after finding five kitten carcasses at his home and blood spattering the walls of one room.
WAFF-TV reports authorities also found two kittens that were alive. Now named Melvin and Mia, the kittens are being kept safely at the Athens Limestone Animal Shelter.
Shelter officials are having the kittens spayed and neutered by a local veterinarian. They should be up for adoption sometime in the next two weeks.
