Re: Tipis and Mice cont.
Out here a woman with a dog that was roaming her neighborhood, she just got put in JAIL. I'm not kidding, she's in jail for her dog not being on her property or on a leash, it was the 3rd time. Think that'd happen if your cat crapped in my yard three times?
There should be NO consideration given cats in this same regard. I really don't care who owns what kind of animal. But your rights as an animal owner should end at your property line unless you are tending to them at the time. I can't tell you how tired I am of having every flower, garden and otherwise growing bed at my home used as a cat toilet. My dog doesn't s*$t in your (meaning anyone's) yard so why in hell are cats given a pass?
Should they be shot for it? We can debate. But if cats really aren't your pet but just a visitor to your house for food whilste making he neighborhood their environment, I have little concern of the outcomes for your cat.
If dogs were eating/preying on native wildlife in the same fashion as cats and if their numbers where concerning and if they were stray... I'd say the same thing bout shooting them. I'm equal oportunity in cleaning up situations that people have put wrong.
Really, in the end the answer is simple. Don't want your pet dying of lead poisoning KEEP THEM ON YOUR PROPERTY.
Seems simple nuff, no?
