A father living in Kent County, MI, had no clue that his daughter was hoarding 27 cats in her room! Get the story after the jump.

The father explained that because his daughter was an adult living in his home, he felt compelled to respect her privacy. He discovered the cats only after his daughter moved out. In addition to the 27 in her bedroom, there were 20 more cats in the garage and basement. It's reported that the cats are in good health and will be available for adoption from the Humane Society of West Michigan soon.
