Double standard concerning dogs and cats under control of owner — 1 Comment

  1. I agree that people with domesticated cats that they permit outside should be considerate of others’ property.

    And, as you point out, letting a cat free-roam without supervision is very risky here. If unsupervised, it may be hours before the caretaker realizes that they aren’t around. Then, more hours to days pass as they search and make inquiries. By that time, the cat may have been killed in the shelter already.

    Ofcourse, none of this applies to registered ferals right now.

    There are few cases of free-roaming dogs here. But, as you write again, they are a much bigger threat to other animals and humans as any cat could ever be.

    And, laws should never be the same for both dogs and cats any more than they should be for a murderer and a shoplifter.
