Middlebourne tackles cat issue

My post: I am so glad to see officials who act responsibly and decisively on the environmental problem of unwanted pets! I was recently told by a TNR manager Los Angeles may have as many as two million cats. Mind you, that's where TNR originated about twenty years ago, and they call that a success?

Dawson stated the traps would be checked daily and any cat that does not have a collar would be held for five days so the owner would have a chance to claim it.

Dawson stated, "Anyone who owns a cat needs to make sure that it has a collar.'Since there is no Humane Society in Tyler County, the council agreed that this would be the next best thing to do.

"It is not safe for people to work in flowerbeds where cats have made a deposit. People can catch diseases from it if you don't wear gloves while working," stated Dawson.
