In Garfield Heights, Ohio, a 79-year-old woman sentenced to 10 days in jail for feeding stray cats after the animals’ owner abandoned them will not go to jail after all. Nancy Segula had been scheduled to spend ten days in jail beginning August 11 at 9:00 a.m, but on Tuesday, the judge suspended her sentence.
According to Fox News, Nancy had been charged with contempt of court for continuing to feed the stray cats after receiving three previous citations ordering her not to feed the animals. As part of the agreement, Nancy is required to remove any items in her yard that provide shelter for the cats and has been ordered to stop feeding them.
Recently both the Garfield Heights Animal Warden and animal advocates have been at Nancy’s home removing the stray cats and kittens. The cats will be spayed and neutered and offered for adoption.
