Pet Sitter, Faced With Eviction, Blows Up Home While Inside With Cats

Roosevelt, NJ – A New Jersey woman, faced with eviction, chose to end her life in a fiery explosion that destroyed the home she shared with “many cats.” According to sources, the person who owned the home wanted to put the residence up for sale and the tenant, who worked as a pet sitter, had been served an eviction notice because she refused to move out.

As reported by the NY Post, state police delivered an eviction notice to the woman on Wednesday, but she refused to leave and threatened to blow up the house. Around 11 a.m., smoke began pouring out of the house on Cedar Court, and then burst into flames after the unnamed woman intentionally turned on the gas and ignited it.

Roosevelt Mayor Peggy Malkin tells the Asbury Park Press (APP), “She had many, many cats.” An outdoor cat enclosure had recently been constructed for the felines, but it is unclear if any of the cats survived, but the preliminary investigation indicates that animals were found in the charred rubble.

The situation remains under investigation.

  1. If she wanted to end her life, why take innocent creatures with her?? She obviously did not think of the best interest of the furbabies because she could have taken them to a shelter. Sorry but if she wanted to end her life, let her end it but don’t take innocents with her. IMHO

    • I agree completely especially since the cats belonged to other people and they were in her care. Makes you wonder how much she really cared about the cats she was responsible for if she did this- sounds like it was all about the money and to hell with the cats or the feelings of the owners.The cats safety should have been her first priority if she wanted to “off” herself.Feel really sorry for the owners to lose your cat like this.

  3. So she didn’t die ? She purposely burned cats trapped in a house/apt – she should b locked up if she alive. we know vulnerable lives like cats have no rights cause judges the law don’t protect their lives like they shld – so if she is alive do spend #? years in jail it b cause of the fire to property. She is scum and her name shld not b hidden. Fkin councils govt mayor districts shld demand laws for those lives -cats n dogs, but they don’t. Pls send emails or call or tweet to them that they shld. Didn’t trump sign a pact saying animal abuse is a federal crime …

  4. I read that a widow was opened and some cats may have escaped and survived. Outdoors now with no food or water. I believe some people may be searching for these cats that ran from the noise and flames and may be hiding in the woods.

  5. THIS IS TRULY SHOCKING, HOW COULD SOMEONE DO THIS TO THOSE ANIMALS & KNOWING THEY BELONGED TO OTHER PEOPLE?
    IF YOU NEED HELP, GET HELP…BUT, DON’T END YOUR LIFE OR AN INNOCENT ANIMAL OR PERSON’S LIFE ALONG WITH YOURS.
    NOTHING IS WORTH THAT.
    NOW, SHE FACES THE ETERNAL JUDGE & IT’S OBVIOUS SHE HAD NOT MADE PEACE WITH THE LORD OR SHE WOULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS…THE FLAMES OF HELL ARE MUCH WORSE THAN SHE EVER WENT THROUGH ON EARTH…A LESSON TO ALL…NOT THE KIND OF LEGACY ONE WANTS TO LEAVE TO OTHERS…VERY SORRY END ON THIS ONE…VANCOUVER, CANADA🙏;)
