Holy COW! Or Kittens as it were...

I never expected to find this.... how long did this go on without someone hearing the cats meow when they knocked and said "HOUSEKEEPER!"

This is just crazy....

Evidently the lady had been living here, hording the cats since March!

Anyone ever seen anything like this before? m

I've seen something like that.

When I was a kid, I had a tendency to do illegal things and often lived on the other side of the law.

A few houses down from me, the lady that lived there would come by once a week for an hour or so, then would be gone till next week. Me being the curious troublemaker I am decided I'd have a look, maybe she'd have something valuable.

As soon as I shattered her window the ammonia smell was sickening. The putrid smell of feces and urine clogged the air like smoke. I honestly thought there was a dead body in the house. Crawling in the window I immediatel step into an old/new pile of #. Every surface in the room, and the rest of the house was covered in cat #. The floor, chairs, desks, counters, any and every surface.

I was there no more than 2 minutes, but counted atleast 20 cats in the house. Apparently, this house was just left to the cats, and she lived somewhere else. She would come by once a week and I guess provide food and water for them.

That was one of the most disgusting things I've seen. But here's another...

Last year me and my wife split up, and outside of sleeping in a tent only had one place to stay. A guy I've known about 15 years now. He had recently broke up with his g/f too, and he was in a bad place. Figured it would do us both some good to have someone to talk to.

Well, when I get to his house I find out that he now only lives in one room of the house. His grandmother died years ago and left him the house in her will. Since then it has became horribly ran down, him being a very serious alcoholic no doubt contributed to the ugly situation.

But like I said, he's only living in one room of the house. He has had the water to the inside disconnected due to burst pipes, all electricity in the house is non existant except the one room he lives in.

It was night time, and dark when I got there. And I asked if the bathroom was operational, he informed me it was I just needed to bring a bucket of water to flush it.

Leaving his one habitable room, and venturing into the dark unknown that was the rest of his house, the first step I take out of the room I feel as though I'm walking through a marsh. You can hear the squish of urine and feces as I walked no more than 4 steps, vomited in my mouth, and headed for the door.

He apparently had just allowed his animals free reign in the house, and they # and pissed everywhere. Since he only lived in the one room, and was drunk off his ass from the second he woke till the second he passed out, I guess he didn't really care.

I left the next day, and convinced some other friends to get together and get him some help.

Just thought I'd share my experiences. Both quite sickening.

All I could think of was this:

This happens more often then you think. I used to have a job that would land government inspectors at people's homes, where they were animal hoarding.

One house was a family. There was garbage and filth stacked up everywhere. Services was called in when the neighbors in the condo next door reported maggots coming through their wall. Ends up it was the family dog that died and the family didn't know where.

We would have to do animal bite incidents, and people would actually report their cat biting them, and found out they had like 15 cats. All would have to be put down and tested for rabies, as the "owner" wouldn't know which one.

Only occassionaly do these stories make the news. There are plenty more that don't.
