Here Kitty, Kitty

Five remaining cats seized from a Meriden home are up for adoption

Originally there were 67 kitties, now five remain and they need good homes.

The 67 cats seized from a Meriden woman's apartment in May were living in unsanitary conditions, police said, and 32 survived.

For months, they sat in cages, unable to be adopted because the former owner, Patti Ann Nadeau, refused to sign them over, the Record Journal reported in January.

The Meriden Humane Society had spent $18,000 on the cats but could not place them with new owners, Meriden Humane Society Director Marlena DiBianco told a Superior Court judge at the time.

Then, a judge cleared the way for the cats to be adopted and people jumped at the change to save them.

All but five have been adopted, according to Humane Society officials. The cats, some of which have medical problems, need new homes.

Nadeau is facing a cruelty to animals charge and is scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior Court on Wednesday.
