The Florida tag tells me that the gator-hoarding neighbor next door helped take care of the problem in a classic Gary Larson "trouble brewing" scenario.

What's with the websites that think you want to read their article so much that you'd be compelled to finish a stupid ass survey to see the rest of it? That's one notch below autoplaying videos on the obnoxiosometer.

NoScript is great. I don't know how people can not use it and obsess over the proper antivirus. Condoms before abortions, people.

I hate to think how many cats had to be euthanized because this guy is either letting them breed or refuses to say no and keeps taking far more cats than one person can remotely care for.

That's... one of the best analogies for why I use AdBlock and NoScript that I have ever seen.

The one I got - IIRC they change from viewer to viewer - wanted to know if I was planning to buy a watch for Hanukkah.

We just had an 80+-cat house discovered here in my town. And these are little tiny houses. It smelled so that the next-door neighbor called the cops. There were also a bunch of dead cats in there. They haven't found the person who owns the place yet.

" I worked with the sewage department and that was nothing compared to smell that was coming out of this house. Then I notice in that bathroom window back there, there was like five or six cats in a 10 inch by 9 inch window, so it was alarming and I figured it was time to call."

I feel bad for the local shelter, they're already overrun with cats. A couple of years ago it was a guy who had almost 200 sled-dog type dogs in a school bus. Luckily it was huskies and herding dogs and stuff like that instead of pit bulls, and they managed to get them all adopted out, with some help from the shelters in neighboring towns.

He is over his limit of thirty cats because the cats that ran away during the raid on his property are drifting back home. Some didn't make it back and were found afterward starved to death. Not only that but people are still in the habit of dropping unwanted cats near there and they find their way to Craig and the rest of the cats.

I run a cat rescue so I see both sides of this story.
All rescues take on a large number of cats, more than the average person would consider having in their homes as pets. We always take in sick cats, unlike a municipal animal shelter, we treat them for illness or injury, the find them homes. Last December our rescue took in 20 cats from a hoarder trailer, they were emaciated, one was missing an eye, had upper respiratory infections, you name it, they looked horrid. If anyone dropped in and visited the foster homes and saw the conditions of the cats, they'd think they weren't cared for. We often get very sick cats that are beyond help, they die. This is common with all cat rescues.

On the other hand... we all need to know our limits. Rescues only have so much room or funding to care for all the cats properly. We have to say no and stop taking in cats when we reach that limit. I think Caboodle Ranch became overwhelmed with not enough funding or volunteers. I don't see why he can't have 45 cats in all that area he has for them.

Now that I've clicked the link and confirmed that this is not my mom I can go continue my day.

... Seriously though. House caught on fire as a teen. She remembered to save all six of her cats. Recalled having three kids after the fact.

We siblings laugh about it now (not mom, she refuses to knowledge it ever happened when it's brought up.)

The funniest thing is that she left her basement window open.. So she would save a cat and it would just circle the house and climb back inside.

FORTY FIVE CATS?!??!?

If you can't take care of three, it's time to stop. There is no way one person can manage more than that. Two people MIGHT be able to manage five (if they were nuts)...and perhaps a family can handle up to ten IF they are fully outdoor cats and can hunt in a rural area.

There is no conceivable way that one person can handle 45 cats and make sure they are fed, healthy and cared for. Either those 45 cats are going to be feral and just drop by for food once in a while--in which case they're not pets and not being taken care of--or they're being hoarded and they're not being taken care of.

As far as rescues, that's slightly different. But if a rescue operation has more sick animals than THEY can handle...perhaps you too are not really caring for the animals, perhaps you've got a minor hoarding issue. They are animals, not babies.

After working in a vet clinic for the last year, it's astonishing the number of people who believe they are "helping" these animals. Of course, these are also the farkers who will vaccinate their animals but not their kids. O_o

The 45 cats are in acres of land. He also has volunteers to help him out, he isn't doing this alone.

I've seen people who take perfect care of dozens of cats at a time. It can be done.

Not saying it can't be done.

There are a lot of people though that can't get it done and refuse to get it done. Or can't knowledge that they can't.
