City needs cat bylaw to prevent lost animals
Re: “Local family upset by neighbour’s actions,” LTE Feb.15
That was an interesting submission about the woman who was upset because a neighbour took offense to her putting up posters in an attempt to find her missing cat. But what is really upsetting is the idea that someone loses their cat in the first place, a pet they claim to care so much about, in a city with no cat bylaw.
Darrell Belyk commented that an effort to reduce bullying must be grounded in reality and common sense, rather than the notion that it will go away if we simply pass a new law. (In a letter to the editor in the Feb. 15 Airdrie City View titled, “Support for Airdrie’s anti-bullying bylaw critical.”)
Same goes for the cats and their owners. In this case, prevention is the best medicine. Put a collar/name tag on your cat and keep it on a tether or in the house.
