Cat Issues

The Town office continues to receive complaints about CATS running at large.
According the Town Bylaw (h) Every Owner or Keeper shall ensure that their cat(s) is not being a nuisance or running at large. For more details see: http://www.churchbridge.com/office/bylaws/2015-012_Cat.pdf

TIPS ON PREVENTING CAT COMPLAINTS 
The Town of Churchbridge is hopeful that all residents of the Town can live in harmony with their neighbours. Unfortunately irritants arise from time to time that do not encourage positive neighbourly relationships. Cats that are permitted to be a “nuisance and/or run at large” are one such irritant.

Informed professionals advise us that the life expectancy of an outdoor cat is considered to be very short. These cats are struck by moving vehicles, caught in the fans of motor vehicles, mauled by stray dogs, injured in cat fights, and are exposed to disease, extreme heat and severe cold. The injury or death of your pet by any cause is a highly emotional and frequently expensive experience.

We believe that the kindest thing you can do for your pet is to have it spayed or neutered and to keep it indoors. You may also wish to consider harness and/or leash training, continual outdoor supervision, or building an enclosed cat run. Any activity you elect will keep your cat out of your neighbour’s yards will help improve neighbourhood relationships. It will also keep your cat from being impounded and you from being prosecuted.

Be a responsible cat owner and a good neighbour: Spay or neuter your cat; have your cat tattooed and register, microchip implanted, or wear identification bearing your name and telephone number; keep your cat indoors, in an outdoor, enclosed cat run, on a harness or leash, or under continual supervision.
