ANIMAL HUMANE officers made a rather ghoulish discovery yesterday when they found one dead cat and recovered more than a dozen others at the former home of actress Grace Kelly.
The Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said officers recovered 14 cats and one dog from the stately, redbrick home at Henry Avenue and Coulter Street in East Falls. The homeowner, Marjorie Bamont, 81, is undergoing a psychiatric evaluation and is expected to face animal-cruelty charges.
"There was a strong odor of urine and feces in the house," said George Bengal, PSPCA director of law enforcement. "The cats were relegated to a couple of rooms in the mansion, and those rooms were unsanitary for the animals to be living in."
