Typically after an eviction, possessions (including animals) become the property of the landlord, which they can dispose of as they wish. However, if you had a verbal agreement to retrieve the cats, this could constitute a contract, which they are in breach of. As such, you may be able to retrieve the cats from the new owner as stolen property or pursue the property manager in small claims.
