Cats are ‘free spirits’ but dogs need legal insurance. By law, you can’t be sued if your cat causes injury or property damage.
You can with dogs.
Luckily, my throwing arm is a free spirit. Usually with a handfull of gravel when I see one doing a big shit in my garden.
Maybe if I dress up as a cat and do one of my “Colonel Stinkers” in the cat owner’s rose bed they’d know how we all feel.
