It's somewhat like living in a neighborhood. What hurts a neighbor should be considered by every member of the neighborhood before doing something.  In the long run, what's good for the neighborhood is good for the home owner who might be the one parking his cars on his lawn and/or running a drug business out of his home.

It's not always a bad thing to consider the concerns of others.

I'm always surprised at how many people don't seem to do that.

People who let their animals roam around the neighborhood, for one thing.

We don't have a big problem with pets here in my neighborhood (knock on wood) and I've been here since 1992. But if we did have dangerous dogs running around I'd consider that a big problem. 

What do you think about cats? Should they be kept inside at all times? I've noticed many people do allow their cats to roam, even those who don't let their dogs do that. I'm not a pet owner.

I think all pets should be kept on the owner's property.

We don't like having cats roam through our yard, pooping on it, personally.  And it drives our dog (who we keep on our property and pick up after when she poops outside) crazy.

For what it's worth, the leash law in Lawrence applies to cats, although many people seem not to know or care about that.

I can see your point, Jafs.

We get cats around here but nobody here seems to care about cats. If a dog shows up and seems lost, we have an online neighborhood program/site where we post to see if anybody lost a dog. And if a cat also seems to be lost (stays around for a long time) people also post about it. Then everyone who has signed on to the program gets an email alert about the dog or cat. Or someone stalking the UPS guy and stealing packages too. I'm not neighborly though I do know my longest neighbor next door. But I don't "visit" with them. So that program is very helpful to me to stay alert to what's happening within the surrounding few miles. 

I'll say that most cat owners I've known let their cats out during the day.
