Subject: RE: BS: Keeping cats from dangerous road
There are, in fact, restrictions on dogs running free here which do not apply to cats. It would not be legal, e.g., for a dog to be allowed near a busy road without a leash, but cats can wander where they list and take their own chances. Our cat generally goes out of the back door, where there is open country for some distance. On the few occasions she goes out thru a carelessly opened front door on to the road, she soon gets alarmed by the traffic noise {she's a slightly nervy creature; even hates the vacuum cleaner in the house} and makes her way round to the back or darts straight back in again.
