Newton Poll - 04-23-11

"Fairview Chase subdivision residents: Please watch your pets closely. You have a neighbor on Fairwinds Drive who has a cage baited to trap your cats/dogs to turn into the animal control. (They apparently furnish the cage for her to do this). She apparently has no regard for family pets or your pocketbook when it comes to getting them back! Folks, my cats are quicker than I and they escape from time to time, so I am thankful I do not live in your subdivision. I can't blame the cats; can you imagine being trapped in your house forever. Declawed cats do not scratch your cars up. A world without animals would be a sad place to live."
