The cats had to be removed from the residence due to the hoarding situation inside.

It took volunteers from the Paws Cat Shelter CT about 14 hours to gather up all of the cats that were in the elderly couple's care.

The cats were being fed very well, but were still in need of medical attention.

Volunteers with Paws Cat Shelter CT will now work on giving these cats the medical care they need, such as spaying, neutering, surgeries, vaccinations, and dental work.

Three of the cats have Cerebellar Hypoplasia, or CH, with one of the cases being severe.

Once those are completed, the shelter will work on finding forever homes for these furry friends.

A volunteer work party is also being organised to help with the clean up efforts.
