Leash Law For Cats In This Town

The officials from the town of Kenai in Alaska is considering proposing a cat leash law in response to the rising number of complaints about free roaming felines and an increasing cat population in the local shelter, according to the local paper which first published this news last week. The solution to stop the situation from getting worse is to require cats to be kept indoors, behind a fence or on a leash or chain, according to the local mayor Pat Porter and town council member Tim Navarre. Though the idea of a cat on a leash may seem absurd to you, it is fairly common to note that many cities, such as Englewood, Colo and Dallas have laws that specify that cats are not exempted.

63 Cats Taken From Well Intentioned Cat Lover’s Home

63 Cats Taken From Well Intentioned Cat Lover’s Home

63 cats were surrendered to the Austin Animal Center by a cat loving South Austin family who are unable to care for these cats after being evicted from their home. It was clear that the family was not able to properly care for such a large number of cats, even though their intentions are noble. None of the cats taken in have been vaccinated or sterilized, and this shows in the large number of kittens being taken in. The vets in the center are working doubly hard to ensure each cat is thoroughly examined and given proper medical attention if required. As a result of the large influx of new cars in the center, 200 over older cats at the center need to be fostered or move out. The center is now appealing to cat lovers to save these cats by adopting them via an adoption event till September 26.
