Double amputee sues pet cemetery to make grave for two-legged cat wheelchair-accessible

Iannaggi says they offered to temporarily move the barriers for his visits if he provides advance notice, but he thinks that’s unreasonable.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports the grave was intentionally located near a driveway for easy access, but that part of the property was sold, and new owners installed the problematic landscaping last summer.

A double amputee who uses a wheelchair is suing for access to the grave of his two-legged cat, arguing that the Ohio property’s new owners discriminated against him by installing landscaping barriers that block his way.

Frank Iannaggi, of Mantua, says he routinely visited the pet cemetery in Hudson after the 2011 death of the cat, named Yetty, who was born without back legs.
