Kitty Welfare in Scotland

The Register today has an article called “Scottish government drafts cat welfare code,” which details a Scottish government document describing basic cat care and cat welfare. From the article:

The Scottish government has tackled the thorny issue of cat welfare by issuing a Draft Cat Welfare Code of Practice aimed at providing “basic information and guidance to those responsible for cats on how to care for them”.

This exhaustive document contains essential info for those Scots who aren’t feline-savvy, such as the revelations that “different cats will have different needs”, inquisitive moggies may end up in tumble dryers and that nine lives won’t save your pet from if it falls from your sixth-floor balcony.

The actual document is on the Scottish government Web site: Consultation on the Draft Cat Welfare Code of Practice: A Consultation Document issued by the Rural Directorate of the Scottish Government

Wouldn’t it be interesting if we had the same care programs here for our own animals?
