A woman from Ohio was sentenced to 10 days in jail for feeding stray cats in her neighborhood.

Nancy Segula, 79, had received a total of four quotes for feeding cats in her Garfield Heights neighborhood. She got her first in 2017.

& # 39; I would always feed and care for them because I was worried about them and I am a cat lover. When my neighbors got upset, they called the animal keeper. & # 39;

Segula continued to feed the cats even after she had received almost $ 2,000 in fines for her actions.

& # 39; I have already paid a lot of fines & # 39 ;, she said Cleveland.com. The 79-year-old said she continued to feed the cats with her own loneliness.

& # 39; There have been about six to eight adult cats and now kittens are coming over, & # 39; said Segula

& # 39; I am sure people will hear what is happening in that inner city prison. And are they going to let my 79-year-old mother go there? & # 39;

Feeding stray dogs and cats in Garfield is illegal, but the woman feels that the entire ordeal has been blown out of proportion.

& # 39; It's too much of a sentence for what I do. If there are so many people doing bad things, & she added.

Her next legal action is scheduled for April 11.
