LETTERS: Safety worth the caterwaul

Editor:

As both National Pet Month and Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month end, why not consider humane changes here at home?

For starters, society might procure an appreciation for all cats – most notably the always homeless, if they were not in such great number.

They should be collected and spayed or neutered. Perhaps their  great reduction in number will then translate into proper appreciation, or at least respect as sentient life.

Furthermore, city halls should order that pet cats be confined indoors when not on a torso-brace leash and accompanied by owners.

Yes, pet cats likely will go through ‘outdoors withdrawal’ and cry a raucous by the front door. However, keeping them safe should make their finite whining worthwhile.
