Carson City has a cat problem, feral and wanderers

Of all the ways to start your day, finding a dead cat in your front yard is solidly in the bottom tier of preference. But that's what Marianne Tucker saw as she pulled out of her driveway on Fifth Street just before 8 a.m. on Thursday.
Upsetting? Oh yes, especially for an animal lover. Her own cat was upset that morning, whining noisily inside their house, and Tucker thinks it's because she sensed the dead cat outside.
The cat had been struck by a car the night before, and someone had dragged it into the yard. That's insensitive, to say the least, Tucker said. She's also not happy that when she called Animal Services on Thursday night when she learned about the dead cat in the road, no one would come out to pick it up until morning.
