Twin 60-year old sisters in Houston recently got caught hoarding over 100 cats in their home. The cats were in varying states of ill health, SPCA spokeswoman Meera Nandlal said. Some were emaciated and balding, while many had upper respiratory conditions that caused blood to gush out of their noses.
“When I opened the front door, there was trash and feces everywhere and everything in the home was covered in stuff,” Nandlal said. “You can smell the ammonia of the feces and urine not only when you open the front door, but even from the street.”
If you’re going to take care of cats, make sure you have the means to really take care of them and not just keep them. That means having enough money to pay for their food and health checkups as well. That will go a long way towards saving cats more than keeping a bunch of sick animals in a confined area.
