The Price story (“Judge gets peeved after neighbor’s cat ‘litters’ on his back porch,” May 1, 2018) highlights a major pet peeve of quite a number of folks.
Many cat owners remind me of smokers in years past. You know, the guy in the airplane, or the woman next to you in a restaurant, or your parent with the windows closed in the car who is smoking in your face, even though you do not like smoke or smoking. They either don’t see their imposition, or they don’t care about your delicate sensitivities.
The same holds true for some cat owners: Even though the law maintains your cat be licensed and leashed when outdoors, many owners let kitty outside to do its thing. Its “thing” often happens in a neighbor’s flower bed, or the cat kills the birds for which the neighbor has planted certain flowers and installed water features.
In short, keep your stinky, killing cat in your own house, unless you have the animal licensed and leashed when it’s outdoors. Thank you.
