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.
Cats are still being captured Tuesday and there have already been nearly 100 living cats rescued and nearly 200 more dead cats recovered.
