no bushes are present. About seven large plastic sacks of garbage are placed
behind the house. The sacks are tied. There are two adults, three children, four
cats and one dog inhabiting the house. The inside of the house is messy: cat litter,
but no fecal matter is on the floor; floors and walls are soiled. Unwashed dishes
are stacked in the sink. The kitchen garbage container is full, but not overflowing.
Children's clothes are thrown on the floor. Unwashed diapers, with urine and fecal
stains are in the bathroom, washing facilities and the commode work are stained.

no evidence of massive infestation. Likewise, no evidence of rodent infestation can
be found. Some of the lamps are without shades; the wiring appears intact.
