Pa Woman Forced to Get Rid of 39 of Her 44 Cats

Rhonda Goss owns 44 cats, but a town ordinance limits pet owner to only five grown cats or dogs per household.




    A Pennsylvania woman's 44 furry friends aren't welcome anymore.
    Rhonda Goss has been ordered to cut the cat population at her Manheim Township home after someone complained. A township ordinance limits pet owners to five grown cats or dogs.

      Goss says she's a cat lover who takes in strays and abused animals, making sure they're fed and fixed. Goss' veterinarian says the cats kept at the four-bedroom home are well cared-for.
    But assistant township zoning officer Samuel Maurer says the rules are the rules. Goss has until Dec. 21 to get down to five cats.
    Neighbors tell the Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era they're surprised how many cats Goss had because they haven't been a nuisance.
    Goss says she is seeking good homes for them.
