One Studio City woman is sick of your lost kitty posters cluttering her neighborhood, and she's not going to take it anymore.Resident Marilyn White-Sedel has been waging a one-woman campaign to tear down lost pet and garage sale signs in her neighborhood. Now she's asking for the community's help, Studio City Patch reports.

"It's ugly, it causes garbage, it's illegal and no one is doing a thing about it except for me," White-Sedel said at a recent neighborhood council meeting.

White-Sedel says the escalating paper blight has been one of the biggest frustrations in her 55 years as a resident in Studio City. She brought in a stack of the worst offenders to the meeting, including a poster for a cat that has been lost for three months.

"Those people should realize that the coyotes got that cat a long time ago," White-Sedel said.
