The Truth Abouts Cats &
By Chris Elliott
July 28, 2008
I live on Jackson Street. While I sympathize with Mr. Griffin,
I think Ms. Pitcher makes an excellent point. I don't remember
cats being such a problem when I was a kid. I don't know if
they were more apt to hang out at home or what, but there are
a lot of cats running around our neighborhood now. On a nice
day, when I've got my front door open, it's not unusual to have
a cat poke his nose in. Often, when I go to work in the morning,
I find little cat prints on the hood of my car. They get under
our house and do whatever it is they do (stinking it up). I
wish they would stay on their own property, but they're sneaky,
and if you let them out, they're going to cat around.
To me, a more serious problem
is barking dogs. We have a lot of dogs in the neighborhood also,
and I can't count the times that I've listened to some poor dog
tied up outside barking and whining to be let back in the house.
And I'm talking about after 10PM. What are the owners thinking?
Finally, to those of you who
walk your dogs down Hopkins Alley, let them squat in the White
Marine parking lot, and stroll away, shame on you.
