14 cats, dog rescued from Princess Grace’s childhood home

By Daniel Kelley PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) – The once-stately childhood home of American actress Grace Kelly, who starred in the 1950s films “Rear Window” and “High Society” and later became Princess of Monaco, was raided this week after animal welfare officials saw evidence of animal abuse. Law enforcement officials from the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals seized 14 cats and one dog from the home occupied by an elderly woman in Philadelphia’s East Falls neighborhood. Linda Torelli, a spokeswoman for the PSPCA, said the organization had been receiving numerous complaints about the home for at least a decade, but its occupant, 81-year-old Marjorie Bamont, had never opened her door to investigators. She actually got into this with the best of intentions.” Grace Kelly was born into a prominent Philadelphia family in 1929.
