Whereas most people hear of animal hoarding, they think of the “cat lady” from the news. They quickly side with the animals, rarely considering the lives of those who have been affected by this conduct. The phrase “animal hoarding” alludes to a person’s obsessive desire to gather and own animals for the purpose of providing for animals, which leads to negligence or cruelty. Many animal hoarders are emotionally burdened, isolated from society, and estranged from friends and family as a result of their good intentions. Both animals and people suffer greatly as a result of the situation.
Animal hoarders’ conduct typically starts after a significant other’s illness, handicap, or death, or another traumatic life event, according to researchers. They regard their pets as a vital source of love, emphasizing the amount of love they take and give from animals. Keeping their pets tends to ensure conflict-free relationships for many people. They frequently refer to their animals as their children, and they conflate their love for them with their incapacity to just provide them with a secure, hygienic, and good environment. Hoarding can often be linked to an eating problem named pica (eating non-food items), Prader-Willi syndrome (a genetic disorder), psychosis, or dementia, however this is less common.
