Kansas City animal control workers on Wednesday removed a seven-foot alligator, two ball pythons and a rabbit from a house in the eastern portion of the city.

The owner of the house was in the process of evicting a tenant when he found the alligator in a hot tub.

Sean Casey, the tenant, said the alligator’s name was Catfish and that it was “gentle as a puppy.”

The property owner immediately called city officials, said John Baccala, a spokesman for the city’s Neighborhood and Housing Services department.
