Woman who had 39 cats pleads not guilty to child neglect

A Fargo woman who had 39 cats in her trailer home pleaded not guilty Thursday in Cass County District Court to a child neglect charge.

Brandie Sherman, who is charged along with her husband, Gary, is accused of not providing proper parental care for her 17-year-old daughter.

Authorities discovered 39 cats inside her home after responding to a report of domestic assault. The trailer was strewn with cat urine and feces.

Sherman’s next court date is July 1.
