  1. There is such a thing as quatliy of life, and there’s no way all those cats can have a good quatliy of life living at that density. It may not be immediately obvious to a casual observer, or indeed to the lady herself, but I’m sure some of those cats will be exhibiting signs of stress. There’s no sign of scratching posts or toys either. We put animals to sleep when they’re sick and can’t be healed to prevent them from suffering. Keeping an animal alive at all costs, regardless of their quatliy of life, isn’t necessarily a good thing. From the pictures and the video, it looks to me like this lady has lost sight of that. Those photos are definitely staged if they don’t go outside 130 cats produce and awful lot of wee and poo. I only have 2 and the thought of multiplying that 65 times ..! There doesn’t look to be more than 60-70 cats in the first pic anyway where are the rest? If the females aren’t spayed they are at much greater risk of mammary tumours and pyometra. The woman looking after them may be well intentioned but I don’t think she’s necessarily doing the right thing by these cats.
