NEPTUNE BEACH, Fla. -- Edith Alcorn's house still has a sign posted from the city of Neptune Beach that reads the house is unsafe and unsanitary to go inside.
"The smell from animals feces and urine it's just overwhelming," said Billy Harding.
Harding has been living in his Neptune Beach neighborhood since 1965, but he describes the last 10 of those years as uncomfortable and smelly.
He blames his neighbor 70-year-old Edith Alcorn, who's now accused of hoarding cats in her home.
"You could see dead cats, cats all over the place," said Harding.
Action News went to the State Attorneys Office to get the pictures of Alcorn's home.
The photos showed cats on top of cages full of dirt, piles of dirt on the floor and cat litter.
Another neighbor, who didn't want to identify herself said she wasn't surprised about what was hidden behind Alcorn's doors.
"It's a very sad thing that people who would turn in cat thought they were being helped and rescued when they were really being kept in an confined environment," a neighbor said.
The city fined Alcorn for the odor coming from her home. Her attorney, Duke Fagan, said she's incurring a fine of about $50 a day.
"She is going to work very hard to get the house back up to code to eliminate problem and she will be a good neighbor as she was for many years," said Fagan.
Fagan said she has taken steps to eliminate the problem and is having the mess cleaned up.
Alcorn's neighbors told Action News neighbors they are still a little concerned if it'll happen again.
"It's over I believe and hopefully when she gets fixed up she won't go back in there and do this again," said Harding.
Alcorn is due back in court on Feb. 20. She is facing charges of cruelty against animals and confinement of animals without food water or exercise. Fagan said the animals had eaten all their food and water after she was taken into custody. He said her fines are up to about $8,000.
