I have been lurking here and until then never heard the term "hoarding." I know that applies to people who keep large numbers of animals in bad conditions. What do you call it when people have 30 or more outside cats? I have always thought this was a good thing and never had any problem with it, but reading here makes me think maybe some of you would call this a hoarding? The animals I am talking about live in the country and in barns. They do eat mice, but the people who own the land put out kitty feed too. It's true most of them are never operated on or vaccinated, but they seem to live relatively long and healthy lives. I don't think they would make great pets. I have nothing but praise for people who would allow such colonies to live on their land. Some people would just shoot them or have them taken away. If this should be moved to the feral forum that's okay. Thank you.
