Unusual and Weird Cat Laws

As a cat owner, you might not think you need to familiarize yourself with your town's laws regarding domestic animals. However, depending upon where you live, you might be surprised to find what you can and cannot do with your cat.

Many towns have laws that prohibit animals from roaming freely. For example, Lorinc, Hungary, which recently passed a law stating that cats may only be on the streets if they are on a leash. Mississippi has a law prohibiting cats from being out on the streets if they are "rowdy." If a rowdy cat is caught outside, both it and its owner will be placed in jail. Exactly what separates the "rowdy" cats from the regular cats is unclear, but it can be assumed that catcalls and caterwauling is probably involved.

BRINGING CATS TOGETHER

If you consider getting another cat there are some things that you should take into account, since this decision shouldn't be made as in a spur of a moment. There are many cat owners who simply think of buying another one and deal with this afterwards. But this can be really an issue for both of the cats once they face each other, since they tend to be very territorial by nature.

Throughout this article, we will point out at you some of the things to consider when planning buying another cat:

* If you own already many cats, you might have the surprise to see them reacting badly and thus ruining the balance that it may take a while before it is re-established. It is no such thing telling you how your cat-s will react when meeting the new cat. However, the best thing to do when introducing the new cat to the old one(s) is to isolate them in a room for several days and thus they will get used to the smells. Afterwards you should keep an eye on them to see how they interact.
