79-Year-Old Woman Narrowly Avoids Jail for Feeding Stray Cats

She’d been cited several times for animal-related violations.




A Cleveland-area woman was sentenced to 10 days in jail for feeding stray cats near her home — but she’s been given a reprieve.

A judge suspended the sentence of Nancy Segula, 79, WJW-TV reports. That means she’ll be on probation instead of heading to jail.

Segula had received the sentence for contempt of court after continuing to feed the cats.

She’s now required to stop feeding the cats and to remove objects from her yard that may be providing shelter for them.

Segula had been cited several times for animal-related violations, including feeding the cats.

“The concern’s been all the cat feces, the urine smell, dead cats that have been found,” said Bonnie Hackett, animal warden for Garfield Heights, according WJW.

The animal warden and animal advocates recently removed cats from Segula’s yard, the news station reports.

NASC Media Spotlight

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
