Cat Woman Sentenced
A Modesto area woman has been sentenced to four months in jail for abusing her cats. Debra Rexelle kept more than 200 cats at her home. A judge sentenced her to jail time and barred her from keeping more than four cats while on probation for the next three years. Investigators who raided her home in August of 2000 said they found 212 live cats. Many of those did not have enough food, water or veterinary care.
