In Georgia, an 86-year-old woman, Fauniel Kliemt, is facing a criminal charge over a cat that she's been caring for since 2007. The cat, whom she calls "Shatzie," was a stray, or so the woman thought. Eight months later, another woman showed up and said that Shatzie was HER child's cat. Which is when the proverbial fur started to fly. Kliemt isn't giving up the cat, and the other woman isn't going away.
The other family says they put up signs for the cat, but thought she was dead. Kliemt has been charged with theft of lost or mislaid property, which is a misdemeanor.
