BARRE, Vt. (AP) -- A clause in a city law that requires cats to be on leashes has sparked a hissing match among fans of free-roaming felines....
Isn’t Vermont where old school librarians go to retire? /s
Wouldn’t that be “A Claws in a City Law.....”?
I just replaced the hummingbird feeder that a cat pulled
down while trying to get the hummingbird. If I catch him he
may end up on a leash with his feet off the ground.
I can’t wait for the requirement for liberals to be on a leash!
I have cats and I have hummingbirds. My cats are not allowed outdoors EVER. They get to watch the hummingbirds from inside the deck door. along with us.

I've heard of spoiling pets, but furnishing their birds with
