News Police: Cat hoarder put 20 kittens inside freezer


Twenty frozen kittens were found Wednesday in an upright freezer in the basement of a row home in Drexel Hill, officials said.

Investigators believe an alleged cat hoarder, in custody for allegedly threatening an animal control investigator at gunpoint earlier this month, is responsible for stashing the felines in the freezer.

Denise Ann Merget, 58, of the first block of Leighton Terrace, Upper Darby, was taken into custody Sept. 10 at her house when state, county and local animal control officers and health department officers removed 59 cats from her residence and declared the property unfit for human and animal habitation.

This week, the township health department was tipped off by Merget’s neighbor, who reported suspicions of dead cats stored in Merget’s mother’s house on the 2200 block of Ardmore Avenue, Drexel Hill..." More
