    Here is a cat I met while walking about 30 minutes ago, in the Waxpool and Claiborne area, close to the community pool there, on the walking path behind the townhouses. The cat is crying. He/she has a collar with a bell.

    That's Luna. She lives on Ellzey and is an outdoor cat. She's not crying because she's lost, she's crying because she wants you to pet her. She's very sweet and a bit of an attention queen. She'll often demand attention while I'm out working in my yard.

    Yostina, you should open a new thread for Coco. You may get more views if you do.

    I don't understand why cats are allowed to be free-roaming.

    Unfortunately I wasn’t home when this happened and I never let my cats outside. He must of escaped when someone open the door on accident

    Why not? They are different than a dog.

    I agree - cats are different than a dog. I haven't seen a dog walking along the top of my fence or on my second floor deck. A dog's feces hopefully gets bagged and disposed of properly (but we know that is not always the case). A cat uses mulch beds, flower beds, and other areas as a litter box, which provides me with the potential surprise when I add new mulch and other plantings.

    Although I hope most people are bagging their dog doo doo, I'm guessing you will find 100 piles left on yards, sidewalks and trails to every one you might dig up.
    I can point to dozens, if not hundreds of threads and comments about dog piles left around, but don't recall one about cats.

    You make a true statement. Nonetheless, that still doesn't make the case to me for a cat to be allowed to be free-roaming.

    No pet should be allowed to free roam. Frustrates me to see my neighbors cat on my second story deck, too (and I don't have steps leading up to my deck!). I think it's rude to allow any pet to free roam on a neighbors property.

    I have indoor only cats. Over the past 20 years, I have trapped both (feral and owned) cats and turned them over to the county animal shelter. All the feral cats and some of the domestic cats were not neutered. I shudder to think what the cat population would be if I didn't take action. For those folks who think it's okay to allow cats to roam, I say you should not be a pet owner.

    As for dogs? Over the many years I've lived here, four neighbors, each with 2 or more dogs, opened their doors throughout the day and allowed their dogs to roam unsupervised to do their business. 3 families have since moved away. We currently have one neighbor who continues this practice. When they're not home during the day the dog uses their deck as a toilet.
