Well done Clarington, I was just about to come to your defence, people should read the comments properly. I still fel that cat owners are not accepting that they seem to think that there pets are'nt governed by the rules that the rest of us have to follow.
Yes there are negligent dog owners but there is redress for this, and if a dog is seen roaming the streets unattended by its owner its likely to be taken to the pound.
If you want a cat then do as other pet owners do and make sure it is'nt a menace to society. If you cant keep it indoors then take it for a walk. Yes a stupid comment but then thats the reason that cats in built up urban areas arent a suitable pet!
Why should I accept mess and disturbance in my garden because someone else wants to keep a cat and please tell me why I'm supposed to keep a look out for cat crap in my garden when I dont keep cats, and yes I have put my hand in it before.
I have yet to read a logical explanation from anyone to tell me why it is acceptable to own a pet that is allowed to defecate where it likes and decimate the local bird population!
