ROYERTON, Ind. - Officials are investigating after they responded to a deceased man's Delaware County home and found more than 40 cats inside.
The man's wife called authorities to the home -- in the 1100 block of East Cooper Road in Royerton -- about 11 a.m. Thursday.
Officials have not yet released information about the man's death.
Animal control officials have removed 44 cats from the home, and the woman was taken to the hospital.

Investigators are looking into the conditions in the home, and it could be condemned, said Steve Sumner, an investigator with Indiana Adult Protective Services.
At this point, there's no word of any charges in this case.
