Wellington Limits Number Of Cats For Owners [View all]

KAKE:

The start of a new year always brings the start of new laws on the books. One that’s catching not only our attention, but also national attention on Good Morning America, happens to involve a new ordinance in Wellington limiting the number of cats you can own to four.

You might not notice the problem of stray cats just driving down the street, whether in Wellington or any other Kansas community, but those who deal with it say it’s there.

"We were picking up, compared to years past, a couple hundred cats per year,” said Wellington Police Chief Tracy Heath. “We're hoping that this new ordinance may lower that number."

This year alone through November, he says 231 cats were picked up in Wellington. So the city came up with changes to its animal ordinance, which includes a section saying “no person or household shall own or harbor more than four cats of more than six months of age or more than one litter of kittens."


You'll have to pry the cat out of my cold, dead hands. Or at least get the cat to let go of the couch cushions...
