Over 90 Cats Found Living In Dumpy New Jersey House

Posted in animals by weirdoftheday on March 29, 2009

The Daily Record reports that over 90 cats have been discovered living in terribly unsanitary conditions in a New Jersey home. The cats’ owners face 186 civil complaints for not providing them any proper care.


Upon entering the house, authorities found the floors and furniture laden with feces. A few of the cats appeared to becovered in filth as well. Talk about stinky…

Not only were the cats living in this squaller, but a woman and her two grown children were also sharing the same garbage heap in their home. 

This is the most recent of many reports of cats living in very poor conditions. On March 5, 2009, 70 cats were pulled from a home in Raleigh, North Carolina (The News & Observer). In November of 2008, a Springfield, Ohio couple was found guilty of animal cruelty after 124 cats (71 among them dead), were found in their home months earlier (Springfield News-Sun). It’s not just cats that are living the nightmare. Dogs, rabbits, birds, and many other animals are kept in unhealthy captivity.

It’s understandable that people can end up with an accidental collection of stray cats living in their homes, but sometimes it gets out of hand to the point where they just might trash the place. However, it is also up to the owners of the house (and animals) to keep things manageable. In a few cases, poverty might contribute to this problem, but it is also just plain laziness that leads to these kinds of messes.
