Trespassing Cat Goes To Jail, Owner Wins $125,000 Settlement

Written by on May 10, 2022

Did you know they had Cat Jail? Neither did I, but a woman in Bellevue, Washington, just won a three-year court battle about her cat, Miska. According to CBS affiliate station KIRO 7, Miska’s owner Anna Danieli received more than $30,00 in fines over the years “for claims that Miska trespassed [and] taunted other pets in the neighborhood”. Additionally, the feline was, at one point, taken from Danieli by animal control and forced to spend time in “kitty jail,” reported local news station Fox 11.

In response, Danieli filed a lawsuit against King County, the City of Bellevue and other governmental entities, hoping to receive reimbursement. Zimmerman went on to say that Miska received 30 violations, the most of any cat had received in King County. They also argued her violations should be voided because the City of Bellevue failed to update its domestic cat code. In the end Danieli and Miska walked away with a $125,000 settlement win.
