Having cats in bodegas.

Mr deblasio,

    As a long time New Yorker i grew up seeing cats inside of bodegas. I would like to see it made legal to have cats in a bodega in New York city. Cats keep rodents out of food products and keep other pests at bay. You don't want to see fecel matter from rodents in a bodega right? I don't either. How can people find it acceptable to bring a dog into a restaurant where there is food that isn't wrapped being brought out and about.. Like.. Who wants dog dander and hair flying around their steak when they go to eat it? The fact that cats are not legal in bodegas but dogs are legal in restaurants is a complete joke. Allow cats in bodega and keep dogs out of restaurants.
