It’s claws for celebration.

A Manhattan woman who keeps three dogs and five birds in her Upper West Side apartment won a battle yesterday against her landlords, who said her barnyard-like home was creating a nuisance.

“We won,” chirped Jacqueline Bartone, 71, who has lived in the apartment for more than four decades. “I can now sleep soundly and not have any anxiety.”

Manhattan Housing Court Judge Peter Wendt ruled in favor of Bartone and husband, Charles O’Hara, 60, after taking the unusual step of visiting the apartment himself.”[It is] not even approaching a nuisance in any regard,” he said, according to Bartone’s lawyer, Adam Leitman Bailey.
