Purr-fect ending for cats rescued in Doylestown hoarding case

A Bucks County animal welfare organization has been awarded ownership of nearly five dozen cats and kittens rescued earlier this year in one of the worst animal hoarding cases in recent county memory.

A Bucks County judge in August awarded the cats, which were removed from a rented Doylestown Township townhome, to the Bucks County SPCA after their previous owner, Lori Ann Romanisko, 56, of Doylestown Township, failed to reimburse the organization nearly $58,000 in medical care and other costs.

“The importance of this ruling cannot be overstated,” said SPCA Executive Director Linda Reider. “While we may never see a dollar of this judgment, we are thrilled that these resilient cats who languished so long in horrendous conditions can now live free of pain and suffering in homes of their own. We ask our community to step forward now and adopt these deserving cats.”

The SPCA filed a civil action against Romanisko under the Pennsylvania Costs of Care Act after she refused to relinquish remaining cats, after agreeing to surrender half of the 141 cats and kittens living in the home, according to a press release. The organization had amassed $57,543 in costs at the time of the Aug. 26 ruling; after Romanisko failed to pay within seven days, ownership was transferred automatically to the Bucks County SPCA.

The noise and smell must have thrilled the neighbors. I have seen homes condemned for less.
