    That is so cruel to be mean to animals. 200 cats. That is totally crazy. I feel so bad for the cats. One cat is ok but 200. That man needs serious help. It must have smelled bad in his house.

    How can this situation go on for so long? Don't people care about the animals and the person? Unfortunately the cats were undoubtably undersocialised and cared for with that many. Shes a horder!

    I have owned pets all my life (not more than 2 or 3 at a time) and they are treated like they own the house. I think people should be checked out before allowing them to have pets. Some people are just not suitable candidates to care for animals and it is unfair that so many innocent creatures have to suffer.

    It's about time they did something about that situation...I informed Boone County Animal Control and the Belvidere Police Department about this about 1 year ago...not only did she have these cats..but boxes upon boxes of dead cats in the barn!

    Were the cats treatable? It'd sad that innocent animals are victims of crazy humans.
