I have recently moved closer to my mother. Unfortunately I have come to find she is an animal hoarder. Only 2 dogs, but I have no idea how many cats. I would say at least 20 inside and countless strays she feeds outside. The problem is her home reeks of ammonia, to the point you have to gasp for air when you walk in. My mom doesn't see a problem and doesn't want to hear any dissenting opinions. She has started having high blood pressure and is on new medicine for it. All of the sudden she is very confused and hallucinating. I am going to visit tomorrow and will take her to the emergency room, but if nothing is done I need to call social services because she needs help and I can't let her and the animals live the way they are. It is beyond terrible to say the least. My problem is what happens if I call social services? Also if she has any inkling I was involved she would stop talking to me and I am the only one close enough and able to help her. I strongly suspect she will not be able to continue living where she is, which means she would need to move in with me. Impossible if she won't talk to me. Any advice would be appreciated I feel sick just contemplating what needs to be done! Needless to say I love her very much!
