May Nelson Collins on Cat Policy - Reader criticizes local cat policy All for CD...
Reader criticizes local cat policy All for CD (Cat Defense.) Fence Post, a favorite resting spot for cats Can it be not allowed in Rolling Meadows because some idiot will shoot the animal, or have the police destroy the animal To repeat, a cat is an animal and even as a domesticated pet it is not too far from its wild origin, nor are dogs. Are garbage bags torn by cats? Not likely, or if so strictly out of curiosity, and now it seems the old saying will come true, "curiosity kills the cat." Fence Post letters have stated animals caught in traps, provided by the City of Rolling Meadows, prove cats are guilty, not curious, guilty, and are picked up and destroyed in 48 hours. Haven't people seen wild animals searching for food in garbage bags and cans' Haven't these people ever seen squirrels busily clawing their way into garbage to feed, or how about raccoons? We do have raccoons in Rolling Meadows, Meadows, our dog was clawed by one when she attempted to chase away one who was feeding from our neighbor's garbage bag. We didn't shoot the raccoon or the squirrels We didn't put out traps or call the police The animals were feeding. Animals are God's creatures, too. Don't they have any place in Rolling Meadows? Perhaps citizens will only tolerate tolerate children who kick in garbage bags or poke holes in them with sticks or maybe push them over just for something something to do as they cut across yards and fences of the neighborhood Shall we think about putting out traps for children, children, take a shot at them, call the police to pick them up and have them held 48 hours?
