******* IMPORTANT: CATS ARE GOING TO BE TRAPPED AND EVEN MURDERED BY LOCAL ANIMAL CONTROL DUE TO FELINE LEASH LAWS********
Hey, you see that cat? He’s mine, his name is Mocha, he and his two brothers are rescues. I love them to death, as does the rest of my family. But, apparently, all that Animal Control wants is their death.
See, we have cat doors, so our furry friends come and go. Lots of families in the neighborhood do it; our cats are neutered, vaccinated, and friendly, so there’s no reason not to.
Now, let me ask a question: Do you keep your cats on leashes? Most people don’t. But my neighbor decided that all of the neighborhood cats were too annoying, so she called Animal Control to report that cats were “not leashed.” Apparently, yes, cats should be kept on leashes in yards, according to local regulations.
Sumner County Animal Control decided the best way to fix this is to set traps for cats and send them to a shady kill shelter. This is outright dangerous in the summer heat to leave cats trapped for hours at a time without water. Trapped cats will be sent to this “shelter” and owners will not be notified, even if a cat is collared.
The shelter charges a hundred dollars to retrieve a pet, and the Gallatin shelter is known for bad conditions and putting animals to sleep before the standard wait time. To boot, they came and told us all of this in front of my five-year-old sister, who loves these cats more than anything. She’s now in tears and inconsolable, and afraid that her best friend are going to be trapped and murdered just for doing what cats do.
Please help me save the local cats and sign this petition:
