Before you get too snarky with your neighbors, I suggest you read the Declaration for Broadlands, Article 8, Section 8.2, (q). In part, it reads: "...any such pet causing or creating a nuisance or unreasonable disturbance or noise may be permanently removed from the Property upon 10 days written notice from the Board of Directors. Pets shall not be permitted on the Common Area unless accompanied by someone who can control the per and unless carried or leashed." Earlier in the paragraph it points out that this applies to cats. So, to paraphrase Al Gore during his failed presidential campaign: "There IS a controlling legal authority."
