Miranda Spencer started this petition to Town of Laurentian Hills Council and

Over the past several years, there has been an increased presence of feral cats in the Elizabeth Street, Albert Street, and Peter Street area of Chalk River, Ontario. I believe that they are being fed outside at one resident's home. These cats regularly spray and defecate in surrounding residents' yards and gardens. At least twice, they have sprayed into my furnace intake, so you can imagine the smell of my home. My kids' toys and play structures have been sprayed and defecated on. My patio furniture has all been ruined as a result of these cats. Almost nightly, I can hear cats meowing or screeching outside of my windows. I truly believe this is a biological hazard within our town. 

I have personally contacted the Town office and the OPP and as we do not have a bylaw that includes cats, there is apparently nothing that can be done. With this petition, I hope to bring attention to the issue for Council to investigate. 

if you agree that this is a hazard to our community and feel that we need stricter bylaws regarding this issue, I am asking for your help by signing this petition. Thank you.
