Barre, Vermont may just put the bars on the kitty city jail with a leash law for roaming felines. A free roaming cat caused some claws to come out given that he likes to use the neighbor’s yard as a personal potty. The potential leash law was presented over 60 years ago and did not pass at the time. Apparently a cat restraint law was passed in 1973 but never enforced.
The article in MSNBC.com stated:
“Reviews were mixed among residents lined up Tuesday at the Simply Creamies ice cream stand near City Hall.
“Have you ever tried walking around with a cat on a leash? It sounds kind of crazy,” said Cheyenne Roberts, co-owner of the Pit Stop Diner in Barre.
Thad Cochran of nearby Plainfield had this rejoinder: “If dogs have to have a leash, why not cats?”
TPPC.tv obtained an exclusive on this photo showing a protest in favor of the cat leash law.
As you can see, the birds and mice are in favor of having the cat leash law enforced.
We could debate the indoor/outdoor cat issue, but we are merely presenting the cat news for your information.
