A Woman Will Be Behind The Bars For Feeding The Stray Cats

A Woman Will Be Behind The Bars For Feeding The Stray Cats

The one factor the folks in this city hate more than Mondays is feeding stray cats.

A 79-year-old Ohio lady is going to be spending 10 days in jail from next month for the crime of giving food to random felines — and that sentence was handed down by an official in a city known as Garfield Heights, based on studies.

Nancy Segula — a self-described “cat lover” — got the stiff sentence-final week in the courtroom following her fourth and latest citation for the caring act, according to Cleveland’s Fox 8.

Segula started feeding the felines in 2017 when her then-neighbor moved and left his cats behind, the report mentioned.

“I might all the time feed them and take care of them because I used to be worried about them, and I’m a cat lover,” she informed the outlet.

“As soon as my neighbors got upset about it, they called the animal warden.”

Segula received her first citation in 2017. Since then, she’s had three more, and finally, she was ordered to jail last week by a local magistrate.

Her son, Dave Pawlowski, feels the sentence — which is scheduled to start Aug. 11 — is overkill.

“I couldn’t imagine what my mom was telling me. She gets 10 days in the county jail; I couldn’t imagine it,” Pawlowski mentioned.
