I wish people would at least acknowledge someone when someone does something nice for them, such as holding the door open for them. Goes a long way. That is all.

Cats? That was one thing I noticed when I lived in both Alamo and Farmington--very few stray cats. I might have seen maybe 3 the whole time (7 years) I was there.

I assumed that the coyotes took care of most of them.


The first week in Alamogordo our cat went missing. We went to the pound and there was our orange tabby male laying in a cage...resting. We paid the $15 fine for not having registered him and the gal working there told us that our neighbor had trapped our cat. Oh, important point-you're not supposed to let your animals out in the entire state of New Mexico without a leash. Huh? The city pound worker told us this. Right. That was never going to work. We lived there a little over two years, let both our cats out daily and never had a problem again with them.

We talked to our next door neighbor and it turns out he raised turtles and says cats will eat the baby turtles. He keeps them under a piece of plywood in an enclosure but occasional they get out. He said he raises them to sell them and his wife disagrees with that. At any rate, they don't want cats, stray or not, in their yard. He was nice, though, and told us he wouldn't trap either one of our cats again.

But the leash law for all outdoor animals is real in the entire state of New Mexico.

The leash law should be in existence in EVERY state for BOTH cats and dogs. Period. I've never understood why it is acceptable to inflict your cats (or any other animal) on people who may not want them in their yards.

As someone who still hasn't healed from the dog bite I received over a month ago, I couldn't agree more!

It's a puzzle to me how so many people believe leash laws apply to everyone but them!

Famous last words: "My dog would never bite anyone!"

Leashes on dogs, yes. Cats, no. That's beyond the height of ridiculous.

I am seriously missing New Mexico much more now that work decided to not give me the promotion that they dragged me back down to Provo for (and I bought a house for, thinking that it'd be worth sticking it out several more years for).

I'll be back, I know it.
