Animal feces and hundreds of live and dead house cats littered the inside of one central Iowa home, animal advocates revealed Tuesday night.

The Animal Rescue League of Iowa reported on its Facebook page that 100 living cats and about 200 dead cats were taken from multiple buildings at an undisclosed personal address Tuesday.

"Dozens of cats were pressed up against open windows, trying to get fresh air," the posts reads. "Air quality levels inside the house are so toxic that ARL rescuers are required to wear respirators and protective suits and are only allowed in the house for 30 minutes at a time."

The ARL said cat poop and garbage nearly covered the interior of the home, including the kitchen counters. Dead cats filled refrigerators and freezers.

A Polk County man who is facing several charges related to hundreds of cats, living and dead, found in “deplorable conditions” is making his first appearance before a judge in jail court Wednesday morning.

Sixty-five-year-old Dennis Carlson was booked into the Polk County Jail Tuesday afternoon on five charges of animal neglect and three charges of failure to dispose of a dead animal.

A criminal complaint says Carlson was living with more than 75 cats indoors with him in rural Madrid and the conditions were “deplorable with cat feces ranging from six inches deep to over a foot deep in places of the residence. Feces covered all surfaces in the residence to include, furniture, carpet, sinks and counters.”

According to the complaints, “A large number of the cats were in poor health, including but not limited to emaciation, heavy parasites, neurological diseases and abscesses.”

The complaints claim approximately 193 deceased cats were found around the barn, two-story garage, and inside the residence in freezers and refrigerators.

The petition says the Polk County Sheriff’s Office was called to Carlson’s home because his car was being repossessed and his home was being foreclosed on. That document claimed he was living with 150 cats in his home, which is “full of feces, urine and there are deceased cats in the refrigerator.”

According to the petition, “Dennis is refusing to cooperate and believes that it is okay to live in his home in these conditions.”

He's so far gone it's obvious he's better off in jail or a nursing home. He couldn't take care of any of his responsibilities.
