Elizabeth Blore admitted breaching an ASBO imposed at Willesden Magistrates’ Court on 24 May 2012 prohibiting her from keeping and feeding cats.

Blore and her brother Christopher were evicted in 2012 after neighbours reported a ‘putrid smell’ caused by the piles of cat faeces in the garden and in the house.

They were told not to return to the house as council workers embarked on a three-month fumigation, during which mountains of rubbish was removed.

Skeletons of at least 15 dead cats were found rotting under binbags during the clean-up effort.

Martha Godwin, prosecuting, said: ‘Ms Blore is subject to an anti-social behaviour order which prohibits her from feeding or keeping cats.

‘Police offers and animal welfare officers attended her address on 4 May [2017] to see if she was contravening the order.

‘They went into the property and there was excrement from the cats in the living room.

‘An adult cat was found upstairs with one-month-old kittens.

Defending herself, Blore said: ‘The cat was a stray and the kittens were four weeks old.

‘They weren’t weaned and were too small to go in the garden.

‘They have taken the cats away now so I don’t have any cats.’

Sentencing:
Total fines and costs of £255.
