Punish Man Who Allegedly Kept Over 60 Cats in Deplorable Conditions

Target: Jessica R. Cooper, County Prosecutor for Oakland County, Michigan

Goal: Demand that the man who allegedly hoarded and neglected to care for over 60 cats, leading to the death of some, receive the maximum penalty by law.

Over 60 cats suffered and some died when they were allegedly forced to live in their own filth. The cats were reportedly in poor condition and infested with fleas. Demand justice for these innocent cats.

The Madison Heights Police Department searched Steven Kwasiborski’s property after they received reports of a strong odor coming from the house. Inside, they reportedly found more than 60 cats living in deplorable conditions. Per officials, some of the cats were already dead, and the others suffered from sickness and severe flea infestation. The cats reportedly used the entire house as their litter box, and rescuers had to wear protective gear and masks to even enter the house.

The Madison Heights Animal Shelter took custody of the surviving cats, and they have been treated by a veterinarian. Kwasiborski was charged with felony animal abandoning/cruelty to 10 or more animals and could face up to four years in prison, a $5,000 fine and 500 hours of community service. Sign below and demand that Kwasiborski receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear County Prosecutor Cooper,

Over 60 cats were allegedly forced to live in their own feces in a shocking case of animal cruelty. The cats reportedly suffered from flea infestations, and many died. We demand justice for these innocent cats.

The Madison Heights Police Department charged Steven Kwasiborski with felony animal abandoning/cruelty after he allegedly hoarded and neglected to care for over 60 cats. Per officials, the cats suffered with sickness and severe flea infestation and used the whole house as their litter box. The home was reportedly so dangerous to life that rescuers had to wear protective gear and masks just to go inside. Kwasiborski could face up to four years in prison, a $5,000 fine and 500 hours of community service, if convicted.

This horrific neglect must be punished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

  1. I hope this sick bastard gets charged big time those poor babies


  3. Put This POS and Sub-Human Monster In Prison NOW!

  4. Find him the most deplorable prison and lock him up for the maximum!

  5. Tyler Randler says:

    This guy better get in trouble for this shit!!! And not no bullshit slap on the wrist either..

  6. Robert Ortiz says:

    That’s absoltuely horrible and unthinkable? What is wrong with this man?

  7. So it’s easy lock this that up in a cage and let him live in his own muck. What a cruel nasty asshole. Hope he gets what’s coming to him.

  8. I personally know this man. Saw him last in 2008 he only had 4 cats at that time. He needs professional psychiatric help otherwise he ll just start doing it all over again. I truly believe he has split personality. Also. Hes manipulated by his wife kathy kwasiborski and there son stevie jr.
    Who to me is just as troubled in the head as his dad.

  9. It’s truly amazing just how judgmental people can be. Especially people who once said they cared about Steve. He spent $1500 a month on food and litter, burnt up 4 steam cleaners trying to keep up, retired early to care for these animals. Fleas-yes, spent a ton of money on capstar and flea meds. We contacted the aspca-no help. We contacted The humane Society, they would take 2 kittens. Where do you turn? He is in intensive therapy. He is not cruel, and he did live with these cats. Bottle fed babies, gave cpr to babies. This is not a cruel man. One of those cats is 21 years old. His name is Baby. They all had names. And they were all loved. To C Mckee, last I heard, your husband was trying to have you committed, so I’m sure you know a lot about psychiatric issues. If Jr. and I were as controlling as you say, do you think this would have happened? Now we can help him. He’s a good man, and doesn’t deserve what is being said. His neighbors speak highly of him. He plowed and snowblowed drives in the winter, worked on their cars if they needed help. During the flood my son and him got their trucks and were pulling people out. Poor choices don’t make a bad person. Not being able to forgive or understand does. Judging others isn’t for us, it’s for God and the courts.

    • And yes, we separated 20 years ago. He was a great father and was always willing to compromise about his son. We didn’t divorce because we didn’t want Friend of the Court to dictate when we saw our child. I have chronic Lyme and he was always there with my son during the darkest moments. We just weren’t able to make it work. As his ex-I have nothing negative or derogatory to say, and I will stand by him now.

      • if you are right, then I am sorry. I do know that shelters don’t care as much about cats as they do dogs. but, all these people he helped.. were they not willing to help him with what mattered to him?

        • Sam, we all tried. Sometimes embarrassment causes people to shut the ones who care most out of our lives. Unfortunately this is one of those cases where the cats became his life. When the finances ran out, he didn’t know what to do. Everywhere he turned they wanted to put his babies down. He struggled with making the decisions he did. As the above person stated, in 2008 he had 4 cats. There was a population explosion. I’m not saying he shouldn’t have gotten them fixed, obviously he should have. They were white with blue eyes. The first time they had litters everyone wanted them, then he couldn’t find homes. and things went down fast. I’ve had 3 surgeries in 5 years, I should have paid closer attention. My son tried, but he’s only 27 now. Where do you turn? Thank you for your comment, Sam. It is greatly appreciated during all of this.
