Police State USA: 79yo Grandmother Sentenced to Jail for Feeding Stray Cats in Her Own Backyard
Garfield Heights, OH — Nancy Segula, 79, is a caring and compassionate woman whose love for animals shines bright. After her husband passed away in 2017, her pet cats died too. So, when hungry cats began showing up on her back porch shortly after, she couldn’t help but feed them.
However, thanks to the American police state, this grandmother’s compassion is landing her in jail—because feeding cats is illegal in Garfield Heights, Ohio.
“It began in 2017 with me feeding stray kitties. I used to have a neighbor that had a couple cats and he moved away so he left them,” Segula said. “I would always feed them and care for them because I was worried about them and I’m a cat lover. Once my neighbors got upset about it, they called the animal warden.”
“There’s been about six to eight adult cats and now there’s kittens coming over, too,” Segula told Cleveland.com Tuesday. “I miss my own kitties, they passed away, my husband passed away. I’m lonely. So the cats and kitties outside help me.”
