Real-life 'crazy cat lady' caught by SPCA in Philadelphia

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Mar 26, 2014

A self-described "crazy cat lady" and the hoarding taking place at her "crazy cat house" have made headlines in Philadelphia.

Pennsylvania SPAC Humane Law Enforcement removed an estimated 260 cats from a single row home on March 16. The residence on the 1600 block of Filmore Street has allegedly housed over 300 cats in total.

The row home, adorned with a sign that reads, "I'm the Crazy Cat Lady. And this is the crazy cat house," has been deemed "unsanitary" by the SPCA, reports NBC News.

"Workers from the PSPCA are expected to spend all day at the house removing the cats. The felines that have already been removed were transported to PSPCA headquarters on Erie Avenue for vet exams, treatment and shelter," further reports NBC News.

The cats removed from the home will be placed for adoption once the PSPCA is granted legal custody.
