Katherine Varjian, 65, was been captured! The feline felon has long been in the sights of the Beverly Hills cops as a recidivist feeder of stray cats. Her twelve-year reign of terror was brought to an end with misdemeanor charges for feeding as many as 30- cats a day in her back alley.
She faced a possible six months of jail time and a $1,000 fine for her criminal enterprise. She found herself in deep cat litter when she violated a prohibition on feeding stray or feral cats — viewed as attracting such menaces as coyotes. The problem is that code 5-2-104 was deleted by the city — an act now called inadvertent by the city. Now, the city enforcers have coughed up the provision like a codified fur ball.
The city still wants to enforce the code, which seems a curious legal argument, and argues that Varjian has been supporting over a hundred stray cats.
It is difficult to get a picture of Ms. Varjian so I assume she looks either like the catwoman above or the Simpsons cat lady below:
