Cat Hoarding

Cat hoarding is keeping an unusually high number of cats without the ability to house or care for them properly. Cats live in overcrowded and unhygienic conditions, often malnourished and neglected.

Hoarding may have been a result of backyard breeding gone wrong. Some are former breeders who have stopped selling and caring for their cats.

Or, a result of mental illness – a compulsive disorder to keep many cats. The hoarder is deeply attached to their cats and find it extremely difficult to let them go.
