At the risk of been in the minority of one, am I the only person who thinks that part of the deal when taking on a pet is that you will look after it, take care of all it's needs and, above all, ensure that your pet does not cause inconvenience or distress to other people? It's certainly not funny when you inadvertently pick up cat dirt, thinking its a lump of soil, only to realise what it is when you crumble it between your fingers. Children play in their gardens, is it right that they may be subjected to this too?
I would not advocate anyone been cruel to a cat or any other animal come to that. It's not the cat it's the irresponsible owners. Yes there are some very good cat owners who take their responsibility seriously, however, there are far more who don't, judging by the number of cats free to roam day and night.
Just a point of interest, all the cat owners who post on this thread and others similar, are responsible cat owners who don't let their cats out after dark and ensure that their pets don't foul other peoples properties. So where are all the owners who don't take their responsibility seriously and clearly have no respect for other people?
I'll not hold my breath
