Logan Gomez, a neighbor, describes it as "A strong smell of urine, very strong smell."
And so are the cats.
More of them. Spotted Tuesday afternoon, just a day after Sioux City Animal Adoption and Rescue workers recovered 50 of them, from an abandoned home on the 1800 block of Grandview. Not all of them were alive.
While many neighbors suspected there might be animals inside, this news reminded one woman of something straight off of a popular TV show.
Next door neighbor, Suzanne Villalobos, says, "Hoarding. Where people hoard things all the time and they get so crowded they have to move out themselves, well, same thing with the cats."
Animal experts on scene Monday evening, say that's not far from the truth.
Cindy Rarrat with Sioux City's Animal Adoption and Rescue Center, says, "This is a hoarding situation and anytime you find a hoarding situation, my heart goes out to the cats, of course, you know, the animals, but my heart also goes out to the personal that's involved in this, because this is something that is a disease."
A disease that can oftentimes lead to a life-threatening one in animals that live in crowded, unsanitary conditions.
The cats that were rescued from this home are currently being blood-tested for Feline Leukemia.
Rarrat adds, "Because if one has it, typically the whole congregation will have it."
And if that's the case, they will all most likely… have to be put down.
If you or someone you know has a problem with hoarding, you're asked to call the Adoption & Rescue Center at 712-279-6968
