A Washington woman who was convicted last year of animal cruelty for collecting more than 100 cats in a recreational trailer has been arrested in Oregon for investigation of animal neglect.

The (Everett) Herald reports 58-year-old Kathryn St. Clare was arrested in Warrenton, Ore., Monday night.

A police officer reportedly found 41 live cats and a dead one in St. Clare’s car.

She also was arrested on warrants from Snohomish County. St. Clare failed to appear for a hearing there last April.
