On Sunday (5), animal protection societies found one hundred dead cats in the home of a retiree in southeast Africa. France, plus twenty other animals in poor health, one of these groups reported.
The cats, most of which were in closed plastic or wooden crates, were found after the 81-year-old was hospitalized in Nice, according to local newspaper Nice Matin.
The retired niece asked associations for help after discovering the animals. In total, 100 cats were found dead inside and outside the home, as well as squirrels, rats, and the jaws of a dog.

“Most of the cats died when they were placed in these crates, but we believe at least two were buried alive,” said Philippe Dejac, president of La Tribu du Fourmilier.
The corpse of a cat that had been devoured by some other cats was found on the couch. Twenty others were rescued alive, but exhausted, and handed over to veterinarians or volunteers.
“Unfortunately, we see such stories every year,” Dijak said, adding that organizations are looking to convict the man for abuse or neglect.
According to the leader of the association, the pensioner suffers from Noah’s syndrome, a mental disorder consisting of taking in more animals than you can take care of, and Diogenes’ syndrome (compulsive accumulation of things).
Nice prosecutor Xavier Bonhomme said the French court had opened an investigation into acts of cruelty to animals.
