WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Thirty-one dead cats and knee-deep trash have been found inside a Wichita home.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/My8B6h ) reported that authorities made the discovery Saturday after receiving a call from a concerned neighbor.

Sgt. Bruce Watts says police smelled decay upon arriving and initially worried that the woman had died inside the home. Fire officials with respirators responded. Inside, they found that two flea-infested dogs had been feeding on the cats.

Authorities eventually tracked down the 69-year-old woman who lives alone in the house. She said she had been in the hospital and was staying at a friend's house.

The woman has been told to stay out of the home for now. Animal control officers took her dogs.
