Cat owners should clean up after their pets as well
11:57am Friday 13th September 2013 in Your Letters
IN response to the letter titled ‘Idiot Dog Owners’ (Messenger, August 29) may I just say that although I do agree that some dog-owners do not clean up after their dog, the majority do.
I am not a pet-owner myself, but I did take offence to the comment “When these women – most are mums suffering from empty-nest syndrome...” as a very sexist remark, and that it is not just women, as I have also seen men and older children not cleaning up after their dog.
While we are on the subject of irresponsible pet-owners, is it not time that cat-owners are made equally responsible their pet? I have to check and clean up cat’s mess before I can let my grandchildren play safely in my own garden.
Yes it is bad in parks, walks, and in the street, but why do I have to clean up after someone else’s cat on my property, and I am sure I am not alone in feeling this way.
