Cats Found in PA Self-Storage Unit, Owner Charged With Animal Cruelty


Police charged a man with animal cruelty after discovering two cats locked in a self-storage unit in New Sewickley Township, Pa.

Customers at Freedom Road Self Storage heard cat cries coming from inside the unit. When police searched the unit they found two cats in a crate without food. Police later arrested Paul Pistone, 24.

The facility’s entry-gate records show Pistone was at the facility Oct. 19, then not again until Oct. 23 or 24, after police had removed the cats. Pistone told police he had recently moved to the area and had no where to keep the cats.

The storage facility prohibits animals on the property. The cats were turned over to New Sewickley animal control and will be relocated to a new home, police said.
