Posted September 28, 2018 09:59:56A couple of months ago, I received a call from a concerned citizen about a cat in a backyard that was being left alone and was not wearing a collar.
The cat had been sitting around the yard for over two weeks, and it had been out of control.
After the cat had eaten a dead rat and had been running around in circles, it was only a matter of time before it attacked a human.
The woman in the call was a cat lover, and she was concerned about her cat’s welfare.
Her cat was an eight-year-old female with gray fur and white belly markings.
She was living with a foster family and was looking for a new home.
The family was happy to have her home, but they weren’t sure what to do with the cat.
I was curious to see how the cat would respond to the idea of being left outside, so I called the City of Vancouver’s animal cruelty hotline and spoke with a professional.
The woman told me she’d have to contact the police, as the cat was a nuisance to the community and the city had no plans to release the cat into the wild.
She also advised me not to leave the cat outside unattended.
The call was made to the Animal Cruelty Hotline at 888-778-4500.
The person answering said that it was a police issue, and that the city would only release the animal if the owner gave the cat a leash.
The dog in question was a white and black Labrador Retriever, and the woman’s cat is a three-year old female with black fur.
The dog was left alone for an extended period of time in the backyard and it hasn’t been reported to the city.
According to the Humane Society of British Columbia, the City’s Animal Care and Control Division has a policy that requires all pets to be kept in a secure and locked facility with a harness or harness-assisted harness.
The city has also launched an online complaint system to assist animal owners in reporting nuisance pet owners.
