The neighbors are lying. I only have five cats and they are well-fed and healthy, and I am a registered colony caretaker for the tiny Hodgkiss Street Colony of five other cats--hardly the dozens mentioned. Both Channel 11 and Animal Friends owe me an apology, and someone needs to pay me for my broken front door. This isn't about cats--it's about the neighbors trying to grab the land under the building so the URA can put expensive new houses on it the way they did across the street. The URA is rich--I'll be happy to sell if they meet my price. The neighbors, Eric and Melissa Czapko, say they are "glad to be unAmerican" and he said "I got the FIX in--your house is coming down!" If so, this senior and disabled veteran with no family will be homeless. Is this really the best that Pittsburgh can do for its taxpayers??
