AWLA: Please Keep Cats Indoors

The Animal Welfare League of Arlington is advising cat owners to keep kitty indoors, due to the hazards presented by Arlington’s urban environment.

A recent case handled by the AWLA’s animal control unit is cited as a case in point. From AWLA:

12-10-11 — 2800 block N. 25th St.

A woman came into the shelter with a young gray cat she found near her home. The kitten, adopted from the League in June, had a microchip and the owner was located and called. There had been no lost report filed. The woman who came for the cat said she lost it over a week before and that it gets out because her other cat is indoor/outdoor. The League advises the public to keep their cats as indoor only due to the many dangers in an urban area.
