300 cats found in a Toronto apartment

A horrific scene as more than 300 cats have been discovered in a Toronto apartment.

Toronto Cat Rescue says the cats  were found in a ``perilous hoarding situation'' and so far they have removed 70.

Some of the cats are in foster homes.

The city of Toronto advises no more than a maximum of six cats in one home.

Toronto Cat Rescue says the cats will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated and observed in their foster homes before being put up for adoption.

This is the second large cat hoarding situation the organization has been involved with in a month.

They say it's a terrible way for cats to live.
