Not the cat's meow
I have something I need to get off my chest. I'll just come right out with it. I have a small problem with cats that roam the neighborhood and come into my yard. I just don't get it. Why is it socially acceptable for cats to enter other people's yards and it isn't for dogs? I personally think it is not ok for any animal to come into my yard uninvited (except for my neighbor's adorable doggie who we love). What if I'm allergic? What if I don't want your cat peeing in my child's sandbox? What if I have a dog that doesn't like cats? What if I take personal property rights seriously?! I mean, for real. If your cat likes to be outside, get a fence. Why is it ok for cats to roam? I don't get it. If you're a free-range cat lover you're welcome to explain why you think your cat should be able to traipse through your neighbors yards. Let's hear it.
