Why not broaden the role of existing dog wardens?
And you know full well I was only showing the double standard.
Far too many stray dogs are PTS in pounds around the country due to negligent owners. Yet when the same is suggest for the stray cat problem there is holy war.. Catch as many stray cats as possible and if unclaimed after a period then PTS.
Sure if your beloved pet is collared, tagged or chipped with contact details then you could reclaim it. Or better still don't loose the damned thing. As responsible dog owners have found out, the right to have the pet of your choice, including RB's, entails certain responsibilities.
Cat owners should be held responsible for their cats.... Simple as!
My cat can open the house windows without any help which is something your average dog is not capable of
(and before you say it all the downstairs windows in this house are locked but you cannot lock an upstairs bedroom window for safety)
When i come home from shopping he sometimes tears down the stairs and out the front door as I am coming in like a miniature hurricane unstoppable most dogs will stop and greet their owners cats generally don't
Prior to enclosing our back garden we moved everything he could jump up on to assist his escapes (i.e. the bins and coal bunker etc) into the middle of the garden and my little lunatic climbed the kids swingset and jumped from the top of it over our 8ft wall into the neighbours garden
He can also claw his way up the side of the shed when thus inclined
Our back garden now resembles a prison yard with wire fencing all along the tops of the walls and he still OCCASSIONALLY gets out (i've yet to figure out where)
This is a neutered Tom
In summary: Cats are escape artists
