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

PR NEWSWIRE

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.
