The cats deserve a good home but unfortunately if you can't afford your animals, they end up getting hurt in all of this. Hope things work out.

This is definitely a hoarding case. Part of the criteria of determining a hoarding situation is the inability to realize that you cannot care for the animals. Also believing that only YOU can care for them properly. At least they removed them and they will be placed in good homes. Hopefully no one will test positive for aids or leukemia because then the whole batch is in trouble. It's nice that the guys helped out. Come on vets, donate some spays and neuters!

Honestly, to allow 2 cats to turn into 200 (and the inbreeding...) while having good intentions, must have involved some kind of mental deficiency.

Rescue Ink seems to be a very good organisation, that does a lot of good, but how anybody can let the cat population getting so far out of control by not spay and neuter is very irresponsible. To have 200 cats makes no sense.

These people needed to get those animals spayed and neutered. Bless Rescue Ink, but shame on those owners for allowing it to get that out of hand,

Wow, now that's alot of cats! Maybe someone should've stepped in sooner and gave those people a hand(maybe helped them make a sanctuary). I can't believe it went on for this long w/out anyone noticing. Thank goodness for those bikers!

Bad enough not to spay/neuter the cats but why not at least separate them so they couldn't continue to breed.

Yeow that's a lot of cats!When will it be understood that spaying and neutering is so important. Unfortunately with the way the economy is, there is going to be less and less of the household money spent on pets.Sadly, once again, the animals suffer.

If only people could see that spaying and neutering is much less expensive than letting the population grow from two cats to two hundred. How can you not see this? Who is going to adopt these cats? There are more animals needing to be adopted than there are people that will adopt. Stop the multiplying!!!!!!!!!

The family had good intentions, as most people do, but spaying and neutering pets is an absolute necessity. I'm glad they're all getting the help they need.

Wow, I find it amazing that they had that many cats and they were all in good health. In a colony like that, it seems like if one catches a minor upper respiratory infection, a week later 90% of them have it. Glad they are healthy adoptable kitties who are now receiving help.

Agree--working in a shelter it surely does seem impossible that all of these animals were healthy. Mayhaps they are just meaning "generally" healthy--in that they have minor things than can be treated easily? Good work rescuers!

Thank God for these guys, and maybe someone should teach these people about spay and neuter. Now there are more cats to be adopted in a overpopulated world of cats. I love them all and wish I had a "Hotel for cats and dogs" and then we could live happily ever after

It goes to show they should have fixed their first two cats, and they would not have this problem to start with. Hoarding is not the # of animals, but the conditions that they live in. There are people I know people that have 40+ cats and all of the cats are fixed, vaccinated and look better than good, but then again I know of people that have 2 or 3 and they look horrible, not fixed and roaming the neighborhood, always hungry so who would be the "hoarder"? I have 18 cats and a dog - and I assure you Im not a hoarder.
WAY TO GO RESCUE INK - you guys are my heroes !!!!

What a great bunch of people. I work with feral cats and I agree that the family was well meaning but just didn't realize how out of control a couple of cats can be. This is a case where education about spaying & neutering would have come in handy along with availability of low-cost vet services....

I think that this group is doing very good things here. this is unfortunately happening more and more. This family, did get help before total neglect came to all these animals. They got in over their heads and in this tough economic time they asked for help. Good they got the help. Spay and neuter ones pets!

Ive heard good things about this group...:) I am surprised by some of what Ive read here. These were good people with a good heart. It was not hoarding as is clearly stated and the cats were all in good health. It was a situation that got out of control due to finances. Yes, simple. Spay and neuter. Not so simple if you can barely afford your food, utility bills, rent/mortgage, medications, gas and food /litter, flea treatment etc for the animals.Unless you have a vet that will accept payments or go probono its something that often can be out of the question. I dont hold these people as negligent but victims of the economy...

There are low cost spay clinics. In MA it costs $60 for female and $45 for male to get fixed. This way it costs a lot less to get pet fixed than to care for all of their kids.
