Second warning for pet owners

We mentioned the city’s first “warning shot” about this just after Christmas. Now, shall we say, they’re barking more loudly: Buy a license for each and every one of your pets, NOW, or else. The “known delinquent pet owners” and “patrolling neighborhoods” rhetoric in the latest press release makes us wonder if Critter Cops might be driving past our house, spotting our all-indoors-all-the-time cat sunning itself on a window ledge, then leaping out of the car to bang on our door and demand proof “Fluffy” (pseudonym) is licensed.

    An Animal Control Truck was spotted just west of the Junction yesterday. It appeared to be looking for suspicious activity. Stayed about 20 minutes and then left.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they came after “Fluffy” in the window. I mean, nobody came to any of our doors during the blackout to see if we were okay (or give us those flyers that allegedly went out), but darn, they’re going to protect us from all those unlicensed critters out there. They’ve got their priorities in order.

    This seems so arbitrary… what about the people ‘storing’ cars, trucks, boats, campers on the street, and nothing comes of that? Or unpermitted building projects? I’m sure there are other examples. All sorts of people thumbing their noses at the laws, etc, in a variety of ways, but the true outlaws are the unlicensed pet owners…

    Give me a break…

Sorry, comment time is over.
