Three Vermont sisters have pleaded guilty to two counts of animal cruelty after 51 cats found in their home had to be euthanized. Caroline, Eileen, and Linda Generess of North Clarendon each received a four-year deferred sentence after pleading guilty in Rutland criminal court on Wednesday. The cats had been exposed to feline leukemia and other illnesses. The Rutland Herald reported that as part of a plea agreement, the sisters were ordered to jointly pay $6,000 to the Rutland County Humane Society, which took in the animals after they were removed from their home in August.
