To the editor:
This letter is in response to the comments made by Patricia Larson in the paper on May 8. She was upset about cats missing and being trapped by live traps. I personally would never harm any animal.
Having said that, Ms. Larson stated that some of the cats were not strays, but family pets. My question is, if it’s a beloved family pet, why would you let it just wander all over the neighborhood? I live in Kenton, and I am surrounded by cats. They come on my property, destroy my flowers in my garden, do their business under my windows, get on my patio furniture and furniture on porch, and I have to clean all the cat hair up before I can sit down. Not to mention the cat scratches all over my car.
She also stated that she would be willing to take the trapped cats to the humane society. I want to ask her, should her neighbors hold her liable for any damage that cats do to their property? Would she be willing to pay for damage to someone’s car from cat scratches? I have a dog, and I have to pay for a license every year, and my dog is never off of a leash. When she is walked, we take a bag with us, in case that she does her business in someone’s yard.
Like I said, I would never harm any animal, including cats. However, I feel that something needs to be done about all the cats just roaming around. All they do is breed and produce more cats. If you don’t want your cat trapped, keep it somewhere that is doesn’t get on other people’s property.
