In 2007, The SPCA for Monterey County rescued 46 cats and kittens from a horrific hoarding situation, the worst Beth had personally seen.

The cats and kittens were confined to dog crates filled with newspaper and pet waste. Each crate held one to three cats. The vast majority of the crates contained so much fecal material and filthy, stacked, urine-soaked newspapers that the cats inside had only 4 to 6 inches of living space and were unable to stand or groom themselves.
