A Reno couple was arrested on child abuse charges after doctors at a hospital found their infant daughter and 2-year-old son were severely malnourished and called police.
Police says hospital staff had to shave the head of the 11-month old girl because he hair was matted with cat urine.
Her older brother had to be treated for starvation and a genital infection.
Iana and Michael Straw were booked into Washoe County Jail on child-abuse charges Monday afternoon.
