EL RENO, OK -- Police officers responding to a domestic disturbance call found more than 80 cats and three dogs in an El Reno house soiled with animal fur, feces and urine.

Officer Christina Penick said in a police report that there was an overwhelming smell of ammonia from cat urine, and cats were in the cabinets, on tables and running around the floor.

Code enforcement officers condemned the house. The family was allowed to keep four cats and they promised to give away the dogs.

They were not cited. The animals appeared to be well-fed.

Most of the cats will be put up for adoption.
