'Hoarding: Buried Alive': Sisters Find Pile Of Dead And Rotting Rats In Mom's House (VIDEO)

On Sunday night's episode of "Hoarding: Buried Alive" (Sun., 9 p.m. EST on TLC) viewers were introduced to Faye.

She became a hoarder after two failed marriages. Paralysed by overhwelming guilt, Faye believed she didn't deserve to live in a clean house, so she punished herself by living in a filthy one.

As her daughters Robin and April took a tour of their mother's squalid home they agreed they'd never seen anything so awful. There were dead cockroaches in the sink, piles of dirt and trash everywhere, and vast networks of cobwebs covered the walls.

However, the coup de grace for them was the pile of big, dead and rotting rats they found in the house. As they looked on in horror, one of the sisters summed it up: "I'm amazed she hasn't already died."

"Hoarding: Buried Alive" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. EST on TLC.
