100 Cats Living Under One Roof

Check out this story from Sacramento -- 100 cats living under one roof. The owners say they love their feline friends, but may have gone a bit overboard and are now desperate for help in finding new homes for the cats:

Re: 100 Cats Living Under One Roof

They're not the owners, they're renters. And stories like this is what gives cat owners who rent a bad name.

Can you imagine how many landlords are going to see this on the news and have second thoughts about renting to cat owners? Or demand an unreasonable pet deposit and/or pet rent?

Sorry about the rant. Pet peeve of mine.

100? I only have 2 and they've taken over my entire house

The last time people tried to elimate free roaming cats it resulted in The Black Plague.

You are quite right. I've heard of houses having to be torn down because of too many cats, the owners of which let things get out of hand and the cats messed the house etc.

Is 'pet' peeve an unitentional funny?

Re: 100 Cats Living Under One Roof

Pun intended.

Some people here may have read about the house across from mine that they're "fixing" after the cat hoarders left. Now we have more than 20 feral cats (mostly very young ones), because they were all just dumped outside when the renters left, and the owners are pretty much tearing the entire place apart because of the damage and smell. I walked into the house to speak to our handyman and WHOA!

Re: 100 Cats Living Under One Roof

The amazing thing to me is that all the cats are HEALTHY. It's fairly odd to have that many cats under one roof and not have at least one or two of them be sick.

At least they seem healthy. I feel bad for the couple- they obviously really love their animals. I guess there is a point when things have just gone too far.
