Philadelphia 'Crazy Cat Lady' Surrenders to Police

Lanie Jacobson was charged with possession and conspiracy to possess ketamine, an animal anesthetic, and had the animals removed from her home. Jacobson had previously turned over 30 felines from her animal shelter to authorities, and the unsanitary conditions of her home forced workers to wear respirators in order to complete the dirty task.

A self-proclaimed ‘crazy cat lady’ in Philadelphia turned herself in to police Monday and was then hospitalized for health reasons.
Lanie Jacobson was charged with possession and conspiracy to possess ketamine — an anesthetic used to knock out animals — and had 239 cats removed from her home.
Officers from the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals began investigating Jacobson earlier this year and had taken at least 30 cats from her house, which has a sign in front of it reading "I'm the Crazy Cat Lady. And this is the crazy cat house.”
Jacobson cooperated then, but reportedly declined to work with SPCA officers even as unsanitary conditions worsened.
According to NBC10 News, Jacobson was operating a licensed animal shelter called Animals in Crisis since 2002.

"I watched cats being abused,” former shelter worker Alicia Manfredi told the station. She filed a complaint in 2011 before quitting.
“Everything was neglected. Feces (and) urine everywhere. It was just really awful for us to be working in." The SPCA confirmed it acted on Manfredi’s complaint, but claimed there were no signs of neglect at the time.
But complaining neighbors saw the arrival of SPCA officials on March 26 and choking fumes forced officers to wear respirators to remove the neglected animals.
The cats were taken to SPCA headquarters to be treated and eventually put up for adoption.

It’s thought Jacobson became overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of unwanted animals.
"We look forward to our day in court,” Jacobson’s attorney, Andrew Levin, told NBC10.

Thank goodness for the cats she surrendered them. She ought to knock back some "Special K" to knock herself out so she doesn't hoard any more.

I have two cats and that's enough, especially with my two dogs. I clean the litter box daily so it doesn't smell so much. There is probably some smell that would be noticeable to others that I probably don't notice though. With that many cats it had to reek. Sometimes when people try to help animals it gets out of control. Sometimes you have to realize you can only help so many.

She takes them in to give them a better home but ends up becoming an animal abuser by neglecting them.

It happens more frequently than you think.
Sometimes it's hard for animal control because if the group is an approved 501c3 and in other words has been approved by the state as a rescue/shelter facility they are allowed to deny entry of animal control. Most of the time when the groups that have AC on their asses they clean up certain parts of their house/foster homes and allow AC to see those areas to try and get away with shit. These assholes know the law to a "t," too. It drives me fucking batty. They think that just because the dog/cat wasn't put to sleep at the shelter, they've saved it's life - regardless of it's quality of life.

I have had cats all my life and my cats use 'the great outdoors' as their litter box.

Indoor litter boxes always reek even if the owners swear that they don't.

It's like alcoholics really believing that people won't be able to smell pure Vodka on their breath.

And cigarette smokers not smelling the wretched stench that they emanate.

I keep my cats indoors always. We have coyotes and foxes out here and we live off of a busy highway.
