LEON VALLEY, Texas

A 59-year-old woman whose home was boarded up after a hoarding situation became a health hazard was charged with animal cruelty.

Police said officers in hazmat suits were sent to Victoria Jamvold's home in the 7200 block of Poss Road in response to a code compliance issue.

When authorities went through the home, an affidavit states they noticed "clutter, garbage and junk built up waist-high," all on top of "mounds of cat feces."

The document stated the home was also filled with live and dead rodents and roaches, as well as rat feces.

Authorities said they found an "emaciated skin and bones" cat inside the home and that it appeared the cat was not fed, or able to go outside because it was enclosed in the home.

The cat was taken to the Leon Valley Veterinary hospital where a veterinarian stated the cat had "been deprived of nutrition" and that it was evident the cat was emaciated due to the cat's aggressive nature when offered food and water.

Officers said feces and clutter filled the home, making the home impossible to live in.

Jamvold faces a single charge of cruelty to a non-livestock animal, a class A misdemeanor.
