Adelaide - An Australian woman has been convicted of animal cruelty, placed on 12-month good behaviour bond and banned from owning animals after 14 dead cats were found in her home in September 2015.
Animal litter was strewn across the house as inspectors discovered that cats had taken to eating each other.
The lone surviving cat, now named Trooper, is heard in a video responding to the calls of an inspector as the RSPCA surveyed an abandoned home.
Chief inspector Andrea Lewis, speaking to the BBC, said what she had seen in the house was something that will stay with them for a long time.
Trooper has since been adopted by a family in Adelaide and is said to be recovering well.
