Hear we go. The Rat King! I'm nervous for this.
Glen, self employed businessman, rat collector. He's dressed like a combo of The Dude and the Karate Kid.
Listen guys, he admits there are too many rats so let's just move along. He has well over a thousand, started with 4. Seriously, be careful when getting these types of pets. Rats DO make good pets, but not like this. Definatly not when the ground is completely covered with rats. They try to pull out his hair to build nests! They lick him in his sleep, lick his moist parts of his lip. (I hate the word "moist" as much as you, but it's what he said.)
Oh of course his best friend has a freaking mullet and handlebar mustache. Why wouldn't he? That's exactly the kind of person that would be friends with a rat king. He just dumps their feed all over the floor. His kitchen floor is a rat's nest. My mom used to call my hair a rat's nest. That really wasn't all that nice, Mom. (Just kidding. I don't care.)
9/11/89, nothing to do with 9/11 of 9/11 fame, but someone may try to take his version of 9/11 away from him. His wife died of a heart attack when she was 39. It must have happened in the car. She drove to the fire department, but she was slumped in her seat. It was too late. That's when the rats came in to help.
*Can't wait for Beyond Scared Straight! Know that!*
Glen says he would have to spend 20 hours a day taking care of his domesticated rats. He's the kind of guy that wears sunglasses inside. You gotta respect that kinda sass.
Robin Zasio! Poor Tonya Hoarding. At least we have our super team on this guy. Zasio and Paxton, get some!
Glen has a crazy cry. I thought I was a bad crier. Glen is worse off than me. He's upset because one of his favorite rat's died. Glen replaced his wife with rats. I would be really upset if I were her.
Glen says he's been trying to get this under control for two years.
MATT! America's hero! Seriously, every week he makes us fall deeper in love with him. Thank God Matt Paxton is on the case. The rat case has Paxton written all over it. That man is bound for glory. You need radical action? Matt Paxton is your man with an axe. Tearing down the rat house!
Commander Whitehead. Glen has a favorite rat out of the thousands of rats and it's named Commander Whitehead.
Glen thinks the doctor is telling him that it was a female because it's name is Commander and that's not a feminine name. He told the vet, "Oh they have female commanders." Yeah, I think he was concerned about the babies she may have, Glen. I do appreciate that Glen is out there sticking up for us ladies though! Clean your crap up and find a new lady friend. You can do it, Glen! I believe in you and so does Matt Paxton.
Glen rules. Wow. Thank you for this after last weeks nasty pants people.
The rat collectors are trying to corral the rats. The bed is one giant rat nest. Scott says they have a sleep number of 7,000 rats. I'm glad we just got a regular mattress.
The animal/rat experts are asking him what he wants to do about a rat that got bit in the testicles. He's agreed to have him put to sleep. Big step for Glen I think. Ohhh this is where he loses it.
I love the tear down the wall music! Heck yeah. I listen to pump up music when I clean too! "I've got tales galore here." Part of the clean-up crew.
Glen was shocked to hear he had 2,000 rats in his house. Anyone worried about it, people are adopting the rats. 500 have found new homes already.
So what have I learned tonight? A Rat King can be lovable. In fact, he can win you over. He's looking for a therapist and still catching rats.
Lisa, Fullerton California.
She's in, what she refers to as, the worst chapter of her life.
Lisa's Dad Bill own the house that Lisa trashed. There are cats and garbage everywhere. She says she lives with "numerous" cats. I am ready to find out what a hoarders definition of numerous is. Taking care of her cat hoard is a full time job for Lisa.
Sex offender's excuse for showing up at a 13 year olds house: Mentoring
Hoarders excuse for a house full of garbage, dead cats and poop: Collecting
Lisa doesn't know what she'll do if cats are gone. Lisa doesn't like the name "hoarder" she thinks it's like calling an alcoholic a drunk.
Lisa's home is a litter box. A giant litter box. "Office, catch-all, crash pad" That's where Lisa stays in her litter box/house. The cats make her get out of bed though. Maybe they want some privacy, lady! Cats value and need desire privacy.
40 cats have vanished. Lisa has them in some sort of cat hide-out. Someone saw her pushing them down the street in a shopping cart.
Lisa thinks her hoard is passive-aggressive. I feel like this all seems pretty aggressive-aggressive. Passive aggressive is saying something nasty and putting a ;) at the end of it and thinking that makes it okay. Dear users of the internet, no one thinks that makes what you're saying okay.
Lisa locked herself in the bathroom and now she's calling Cory from her toilet prison.
Who is this doctor? Whatever. I don't give a crap about him at this point. I want to, maybe he'll do something Paxton-like soon.
Lisa is blaming A&E for not getting the house cleaned and sanitized, but she won't let them leave. People, stop blaming A&E for these people. They are trying to help. Lisa is choosing hoarding over letting people clean her house for her. What a jackass.
Oh her poor Dad. He's going to have to evict his daughter. "I'll never be done with her because she's my daughter. I'm done with the way she lives." Bill, awesome Dad to a hoarder.
He couldn't evict her. She still hoards and collects cats.
Have a nice off-season, everybody!
