Authorities in Denver have arrested a mother and father after it was discovered they were allegedly raising their four children in a home covered in cat feces.

Wayne Sperling, 66, and Lorinda Baily, 35, face multiple counts of felony child abuse charges after police discovered their children, ages 2, 4, 5 and 6, were malnourished and living in quarters littered with cat feces and urine, according to KUSA-TV.

Authorities were tipped off to the children's living conditions when one was brought to the hospital and reportedly reeked of an appalling smell.

A medical report later showed that the children could not speak and had not been toilet trained, according to KCNC-TV. The father reportedly told investigators the children had developed "their own language."

The kids were living in an area that "overwhelmingly" smelled of animal excrement and authorities say they found one to two inches of feces under the bunk bed where the children slept.

"Unbearable," is how investigators described the living conditions.

Court records added that the house was "littered with dead flies, some of which were still twitching."

Sperling and Baily are in custody with a bail of $5,000 bail and the children are in protective custody.
