Animal hoarding is so bad, you guys!
Not only is it really unsanitary and bad for your health, it's super cruel!
Unless you're a millionaire, with a huge staff and a zoo at your house, you shouldn't own 100 pets.
But a woman in Wright, New York did just that, keeping 99 cats in crates in her home.
She had another 67 dead cats in bags in her freezer.
That is just AWFUL!
The woman, Irene VanDyke, was brought to the authorities attention when neighbors called the cops complaining about the overpowering stench of urine and cat poo poo pouring out of the home.
The cats were removed from the home and are now slowly being nursed back to health.
People who knew the woman said that they believe the hoarding got worse after the unexpected death of her husband in December of 2010.
No one knows why she was keeping the dead cats.
It's all so sad but we're just glad the cats were rescued!
