HOUSTON (March 28, 2014) Authorities found more than 100 cats in what officials described as a "hoarding situation" at the Houston home of 60-year-old twin sisters.
Authorities made the discovery Thursday morning after neighbors called to complain.
Harris County Precinct 1 Constable's Office spokesman J.C. Mosier said feces were piled "literally 3 feet high,” and authorities think the situation had been going on for years.
"We're hoping we can get them some official help from the proper government entity and we've been trying to do that,” Mosier said.
Constables said no charges will be filed.
A Houston Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals spokeswoman says the cats, which were taken to the shelter, were emaciated.
One dead and decomposing cat was found in the house.
