Pierced Cats Sold on eBay

AP

Wayne Harvey, SPCA kennel attendant, holds one of three kittens that were taken from a home in Ross Twp., Penn. because some of its body parts were pierced.

Humane officers say a Pennsylvania woman marketed "gothic kittens" with ear, neck and tail piercings over the Internet.

Officers with the SPCA of Luzerne County removed three kittens and a cat from a home outside Wilkes-Barre.

Officer Carol Morrison says the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals raided the Ross Township home on Wednesday after getting a tip that the woman was selling the pierced kittens on eBay.

"It's unbelievable anybody would do this to kittens" she said.

Charges are likely against the homeowner, whose name was not released.

Morrison says the woman has a pet grooming business in the basement of the home.
