OK, so maybe the 97th cat wasn't such a good idea
I am so blown away by this. People actually lived in this house with 97 cats. Warning pretty gross. http://snap.tbo.com/pages/gallery.php?gallery=320952

ew- you gotta wonder about the thinking processes there..... I've heard the phrase that "cats are like potato chips, you can't have just one" but this is a little excessive

Poor kitties! Raised in that environment, I bet they are pretty feral. Which means that most, if not all, will be put down.

That's just awful!

I feel so bad for the cats. They had it on the news last night and I couldn't watch. They said the people living in the house had mental problems. Well duh! Poor little things, my heart just breaks for them.

Don't need a degree to figure that out.

I love my cats, but That house will have to be burned down.

We had a similar case a couple of years ago--a hundred or so cats in a house. Only one of the kittens didn't need to be put down due to severe illness. Such a shame.

I love cats too, and have 7. Um, maybe I'd better stop NOW. Every so often a needy thing arrives on our doorstep needing a home, and I have problems turning them down. However, I do get them fixed immediately.

I watch quite a bit of Animal Planet, and cases of 'animal hoarding' are always terribly sad. The peole really are mentally ill, thinking that they are doing the very best thing for the animal--I have to wonder if it's a form of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

It's not at all unusual for every cat taken from a hoarder to have to be put down due to Feline Leukemia, parasites, you name it.

Poor things.
