True story: In Chicago, a single middle-aged woman who adopted something like 20 cats from the ASPCA — thereby qualifying for the title of ‘Crazy Cat Lady’ from her neighbors — was threatened by the city for having so many cats in her house. They claimed it was an ‘unhealthy and unsanitary environment,’ even though she kept excellent care of her pets. To stave off more visits from the local — ahem — fuzz, she simply filed the papers to become a non-profit no-kill animal shelter. Today she has many more cats and, sadly, not many adoptors, but at least she’s not being pestered by the law, and even her neighbors don’t think she’s so crazy anymore.
