A city woman has pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges after 89 cats were removed from her home 14 months ago, many of them in medical distress.

On April 17, 2016, Calgary Humane Society peace officers inspected the West Hillhurst home and removed all of the Maine coon cats from the residence after determining the severity of the medical and environmental concerns.

Last Friday, Ruth Sogz pleaded guilty to charges under the Animal Protection Act and received a $5,000 fine and a lifetime prohibition from owning all but two cats which have been fixed so they can no longer breed.

Humane Society officials say the fine is one of the toughest penalties under the act handed out to offenders and also applauded the ownership prohibition.

“It is encouraging to see the court apply a lifetime prohibition in this case, given the level and volume of suffering in the home,” said Brad Nichols, senior manager of animal cruelty investigations with the society.

“Not long ago, such a ban was unheard of.”

Nichols said many of the cats had severe respiratory conditions because of the amount of urine and feces that had built up in the home. He said about 60 of the cats had to be put down, while the remaining ones were put up for adoption.

Sogz is required to accept regular welfare checks by society peace officers and to submit annual health reports for the two cats she is allowed to keep.
