Police found 111 Cats and neglect child in Indiana Couple Home!
Well this is certainly the most spooky news you have heard today, When authorities were called to an Indiana house after an elderly woman died there this month, they found a home covered in feces, urine — and dozens upon dozens of cats. Remember the story of 101 Dalmatians; now just recast those dogs with cats. At some point, authorities also discovered a child who had been living in the home with the elderly woman and two other adults — a husband and wife. What is unclear was how the child is related to the other residents, when the child was found and in what condition.
Animal cages, plastic bins and dirty cat litter were scattered around the one-story home in the small Indiana town of Daleville. Over the next few days, crews wearing hazmat suits were at the home rescuing the animals.
The final tally: 111 cats. Many of which are female and pregnant, according to a Fox affiliate. Some were kittens no older than a day.
