50 Cats that have been rescued from what's being described at a "horrible hoarding situation" in a Fresno home. The CCSPCA, which carried out the operation on Tuesday, says the flooring of the home was covered with as much as six inches of feces. The only source of water in the home was reportedly a leaking bathtub and most of the cats had reportedly never been outside the home.
According to the CCSPCA all the cats and kittens on scene were severely malnourished and underweight, but the animals were reportedly docile, and were taken to to the CCSPCA to determine whether or not they had other health issues.
Several of of the kittens reportedly suffered from an upper respiratory condition, but are expected to survive and are being cared for. Donations of cat food and litter will be needed, as well as monetary donations made to our Wellness Fund to help cover the costs of caring for all the sick kittens.

The owner of the home has not been identified.
