The Wisconsin Humane Society discovered over 100 cats living in a single home in Racine County on Thursday.

The initial number of cats found was 85, however the humane society said that they found an additional 17 cats on Thursday. The total number of cats removed as of now, is 112. However, the humane society says they expect about 10 more.

The humane society described the scene inside the home as "shocking and heartbreaking" as they found cats inside the walls and ceiling. They even found some deceased cats and kittens.

Feces and urine permeated nearly every surface of the home, making it uninhabitable.

The humane society had to set traps in order to contain all of the cats.

Seventeen cats are now at the Milwaukee Humane Society campus, while the rest are at the Racine campus.

If you are interested in adopting, you can visit the humane society's "Available Cats" webpage for updates on when the cats will be ready for a new home.

Further, you can also donate to help these cats on their road to recovery as they are going to need a lot of support both medically and behaviorally.
