Nancy Segula lost her husband and her cats in 2017 and, feeling lonely, she made friends with the stray buddies in her neighborhood via the most direct route to a kitty’s heart — food.
Now poor Nancy has the prospect of 10 days in jail hanging over her head because curmudgeons in her hometown of Garfield Heights, Ohio, complained about her
acts of charity service to cats and called the police.
“I’m an animal lover, and I feel guilty that they’re wandering around out there and they have nothing to eat,” Segula explained, as if serving cats requires explaining. “So I just feel that I need to give them food.”
What a sad legacy for a town named after a fat orange tabby cat!
Now a judge has intervened and will hold a hearing this month in an attempt to diffuse the situation and avoid jailing the kindly Mrs. Segula for the “crime” of doing what all humans should do.
Buddy wants YOU to write letters of support on behalf of Mrs. Segula! It’s very important that you DO NOT send them poop! Ask your humans for envelopes and stamps, then dictate the letters to them. Or if you have one of those fancy computers, you can email the mayor directly at email@example.com and ask him to get rid of that ridiculous ordinance that makes it a crime for humans to feed their feline overlords.
Remember, no poop!

Awww. I was really excited at the prospect of sending some poo to these evil doers and now you say I can’t. At really bums me out Buddy!
I will send out an email. I feel the squirrels in my neighborhood (cause they’re cute and SO funny!) and I don’t get in trouble for it. I don’t see the difference. Why should this lady get in trouble for helping out those poor kitties at her place when all she’s doing is helping animals in need. To me, she’s a saint!
Too many curmudgeons in her neighborhood. She was basically managing a feral colony.
That’s horrible. How is feeding cats a “crime”? Those people should be in jail.
