Hoarding

Hoarding is the excessive gathering of food or certain items. Sometimes hoarding can become compulsive and problematic. When this happens, people are often unwilling to get rid of things they do not really want or need. They just can't bring themselves to part with many items, even when the item is useless to them. Through the years, these people have been referred to as packrats, but some experts are starting to believe this may be a serious mental health issue.

Can a ferret be a hoarder?

Most ferrets are hoarders! In fact, their Latin name - Mustela putorius furo - reflects this tendency, as it means "weasel-like stinky thief." Ferrets will often develop an attachment to a particular item or type of item and will spend much time and effort searching for it if their hiding place is discovered and the item removed. As an example, our female ferret, Yentl, has a particular liking for cellphones and will steal them whenever she gets the chance to do so, secreting them away in various places about the house.

What is animal hoarding?

Animal hoarding is the act of collecting or taking in a large amount of animals. Often these animals are kept in subpar living conditions. This situation is usually related to individuals with mental disorders when the collecting of animals has become almost obsessive. Their intentions are often good and they do not realize they are harming the animals. Animal hoarding is mostly done by mentally disabled people. They don't know that what they are doing is wrong. Most of the animals are ungroomed, not neutered, and live in horrid conditions. The owners usually can't afford to have the animals neutered, so the animals breed continuously. Most of the time the animals get sick from no veterinary care and living in poor conditions. In B.C. where I am from, the situation of animal hording is getting worse all the time. Most of the time it's breeders who get in over their heads raising pure breds, and continue breeding the animals even when no buyers are immediately available. People, when they are lonely, they tend to use animals to make the lonliness go away. So they collect animals to feel comforted. So they keep animals and the collection gets bigger. Then the house is filled with animals, which is known as hoarding.

Why is hoarding such an issue on TV lately?

In my opinion, the mental health field, unfortunately, goes through "fads." For certain time periods, it seems that almost everyone who has any kind of problem is given a particular diagnosis. Television is particularly susceptible to this phenomenon. I can remember when every series had a character with multiple personality disorder, and the movie of the week was "Sybil." These days hoarding seems to be in the limelight. I haven't seen any statistics which indicate that it is any more prevalent than it was in prior years/decades (although, to be honest, I haven't researched it specifically).

Programs about dysfunctional people are inexpensive to produce. All it requires is a director, a camera crew, a narrator and one writer. No actors, no sets. Hoarders are much easier to work with than people with alcohol/drug problems.

Is animal hoarding illegal?

Some locations have laws regulating the number of specific animals allowed per dwelling unit, but not all do, so the answer is "it depends on where you are." Many locations have exemptions for e.g. bona fide animal shelters where it's expected that there may be a large number of animals but where they are being properly cared for by people specifically trained to give that care.

Since "hoarding" implies a lower standard of care, it's probable that it's illegal under animal cruelty laws in most locations as well, even in the absence of a specific limit on the number of animals permitted.

What is the root of hoarding?

I don't think it is a one answer fits all kind of problem. Some see some future use and never get around to use all of it. Someare emotionally so overwhelmed that they can not manage to sort through stuffand make decisions and deal with memories. Some I think might start as a rebellion in childhood against an overly perfectionistic parent sort of lkike passive aggression. Some seem to get some feeling of emotional support from the stuff having been denied it by others. I don't think all hoarders are ocd but some probably are. A one fit defination root and solution is probably more harm than help.
