SEASIDE, Calif. (AP) - Officials with a Northern California animal humane society are reporting a gruesome discovery in the Monterey County community of Seaside.

A spokeswoman for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals for Monterey County says officials found 113 dead kittens in an apartment believed to belong to a cat hoarder.

Besides the dead kittens, investigators found 51 cats locked in rooms in the suspected hoarder's nearby house. Those cats were alive, but sick and neglected.

SPCA Sgt. Stacy Sanders says officials were alerted by a property manager who discovered dead kittens during an inspection. Sanders says some of the cats may have been local pets taken off the street.

SPCA staff members are taking care of the surviving cats. At least five of those cats are pregnant.
