Recaps3x6: Cat Catching recap
: An MHS team, including the investigators, heads to a house full of cats. The cats have never been socialized, so they are very aggressive. Another problem is the ammonia smell, created from cat urine; the team has to take regular breaks for fresh air. In total, 49 cats are captured! Unfortunately, only a kitten is found suitable for adoption, although she still has ear, nose and throat problems, as well as digestive issues.

: Investigators MacDonald and Ramos investigate a report of multiple animals being abandoned in a house. The owner is there, but she is being evicted. They go in and find birds being kept in tiny, crowded cages. Many have plucked their feathers out due to stress. They also find an emaciated rabbit with long nails. When MacDonald sees the animals' horrible living conditions, she decides to seize them immediately, and luckily the owner agrees to sign them over.

: Debby MacDonald and Mark Ramos respond to a call about an owner that has temporarily gone away, leaving pets in terrible conditions.

Altogether they find two rabbits, seven chickens, a turkey, two hen, two pheasants, a goose, two roosters, four quails, and a dog. Unfortunately they can't legally take them.
MacDonald and Jennifer Charion later return, and the owner returns as well. He claims that the dead dog ate rat poison. Unfortunately, the body is too decomposed to prove otherwise. He signs the birds over, but the dog is his brother's, so they leave it behind. The birds are adopted, and no action is taken against the previous owner because it turned out that he did set up care for the animals but was let down... read more. recap
