Betty Gould was met with protesters at her salon Saturday.
They want her cats taken from her before she goes to trial at the end of January. But investigators say the conditions the cats are in didn’t seem life threatening.
“We’re doing our part here. We work for the community. We’ll continue to be following this case and doing what we need to do so they can be assured of that. We’ll be working hard on this all the way through,” said Sgt. John Umenhofer, Springfield Police Department.
There’s now a Facebook page called Concerned Citizens Against Betty Gould.
