Awe those poor cats. I wonder why there were so many and why they were in the deep freeze?!? Perhaps she didn't have a place to bury them?

I agree - she probably wanted to just deal with the dead kitties in the simplest manner. This form of mental illness is so, so sad - the animals suffer & more than likely, the outcome for those rescued & taken to shelters prob. won't be all that bright either.

I don't think I'll ever understand why some people keep SO many animals and don't care for them

Yet another reason why we need to advocate spaying/neutering. Most hoarders start off with a very few cats...but over time and due to imbreeding a few cats turns into hundreds. It's unfair to the cats and the person to allow this to continue...so make sure that you advocate spaying/neutering.

I was thinking of ordering a spay/neuter license plate on a humane society's website or a related site but I can't find it anymore. Has anyone else seen this?

Here in Virginia we can get "I'm animal friendly" license plates..the funds are supposed to go towards spaying/neutering. I also have several bumper stickers about spaying/neutering and adoption.

This one is for Maryland but I'm sure other states have similar ones.

that is just awful! all the other cats are probably to ill or wild to ever be placed, I bet many of them will end up being pts I don't understand- she obviouslt had enough money to go on a foreign vaction, but could not care for her cats properly I swear everyday the magnitude of this problem (cat overpopulation) seems bigger and biggger.... PLEASE SPAY & NEUTER!!!!

that was a REALLY sad story...I remember that I read this story about a ferret owner who had actually put them into bags or something, and cats and stuff like that, and that the animals were practically fully liquid! I know that I don't remember all of the details, but it was totally disgusting!

I wonder why the animals don't run away when the door opens...I guess they are used to it

It's all very sad. I hate hearing this stuff. The worst part is it happens way more than we even hear about...awful

Cat hoarding is actually a compulsion, and a mental illness. People who have this behavior do not do it out of cruelty, or because they have a desire to harm cats. The compulsion gets so out of control, and the individual is literally unable to stop him/herself from "collecting" cats, that the financial and personal responsibility becomes overwhelming, and then the person literally cannot provide the best for any single cat in his or her home.

It's sad. I hope the woman can get professional help, and if she feels some remorseful of her actions, can learn to forgive herself...and also stop acquiring cats. She probably will never be fit to own another animal again.

It's also very common for the cat collector to dispose of diseased or dead animals in a bizarre way (i.e. the freezer), because he or she is afraid of being caught...and burying that number of animals is out of the question.

Very tragic.
