Owner faces hearing over cat
May 23, 2006
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. --Lewis the cat, whose alleged attacks have landed his owner in legal trouble, will learn his fate in court next month.
Ruth Cisero, the cat's owner, was in court Tuesday on a charge of second-degree reckless endangerment. A hearing was set for June 20 to determine whether she could get special probation and have her cat's life spared.
Cisero, a Fairfield resident, recently withdrew her bid for special probation and opted for trial because she would have had to allow Lewis to be euthanized.
"She's on pins and needles," said Eugene Riccio, attorney for Cisero and Lewis. "The animal is important to her. It's a member of her family."........
