Cat Surrendered for Adoption

L ST. SE, 1400 block, April 29. A woman in an apartment building called the Humane Society and claimed that a neighbor sprayed her cat with ammonia each time it went outside to use its litter box on a balcony. A society officer determined that the cat was healthy and did not smell of ammonia. At that point, the owner said she did not want the cat and surrendered it. The cat was made available for adoption.
