Everyone has a little bit of hoarder in them. Maybe a cluttered closet or an underwear drawer that’s full of G.I. Joes and old Groo comics or something. I dunno.
However, as much as hoarding is some sort of mental illness, it really comes down to being lazy and stubborn. Lazy, crazy, stubborn peoples.
But, in the end hoarding only usually hurts the hoarder, unless they are hoarding stuff in the backyard and it’s an eyesore. It’s kinda… well.. weird when someone hoards another person.
Residents of one Reading neighborhood called it a “House of Horrors.” Police said an animal hoarder locked a 72-year-old man inside her home and held him captive for weeks. His family is relieved that she is behind bars.
Officials said under one roof you had dozens of animals running amok, code violations that could bring thousands of dollars in fines and for weeks, and a senior citizen was locked up in that house imprisoned.
The home is in the 1500 block of Mineral Springs Road in Reading. That’s where the owner of the home, 55-year-old Mary Lou Petrucci, was arrested Friday. And police have charged her with false imprisonment of another person as well as reckless endangerment. SOURCE: WFMZ.com
In her defense, she could have just forgotten he was there given the fact that her house was overrun with cats and crap.
Cats get such a bad rep based on the nut jobs who like to have 17 of them at a time. Seriously. Just get one freaking cat and be happy. You cannot and should not attempt to save every animal in the world. It’s not feasible and you look delusional and desperate.
