Good Samiritan Or Krazy Kat Lady?

I'm not sure what to make of this video. Over in Russia there is a woman who has 136 cats(!!!) in her three-room apartment. There are so many she can't give each one a bowl, so she just tosses the food at them and they eat it off the floor.

At first I was horrified by this woman, but then I looked closer. The house is clean and all the cats seem healthy and taken care of. She doesn't strike me as a lonely Krazy Kat Lady, either. She just felt that it was better for her to take the cats in and care for them instead of letting them suffer in the elements, especially Russian winters.

What do you think? Now that the video aired, maybe people will come forward to give some of the animals a more spacious home?
