gopher321: Your tax dollars at work

...saved a cat.

I'd rather that than have it line some bureaucrat's pocket.

Maud Dib: My cat stays inside. When folks tell me it's "cruel", I tell them I'd rather have him live happily inside than be eaten by coyotes.

I don't get the "It's cruel to keep a cat indoors" people. Your cat is a domestic pet, not a wild animal. Although it could probably fend for itself in the wild, why would you leave its care to chance? Keep it inside, away from cars & wilder animals.

These are firefighters. They were already on duty. If they hadn't been called to free a cat from a car engine, they would have been responding to any one of a dozen stupid 911 calls. Either that or just sitting at the station, washing the trucks and waiting for a call.

If there was something more important, say a huge fire at an elementary school or something, I'm sure they would have left the cat to go help out with that.

To make a long rambling response short, the tax dollars were being spent anyways. The only extra expense was the fuel it took to drive to the scene, and I'm okay with that if it saved an adorable kitten from a terrible death.

This is my cat Jinx, who was rescued from the engine compartment of a car about 3 months ago. Here she is checking out snow for the first time.

/Cool story Bro!

I don't let my cats roam the neighborhood. I built an admittedly goofy-looking "catio" on my back deck and put a bunch of planter boxes filled with grass out there. The cats can sputter at the birds all they want, roll in the sun, and barf enormous grassy hairballs to their hearts' content. I don't have to worry about them napping in a warm car engine.
