YAY: Cat lovers

February 18, 2013 

We live in Washington. We love cats. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, our state ranks fifth in the nation for cat ownership. About 39 percent of us own cats.

We’re not so hot on dogs. Washington didn’t rate in either the top 10 or bottom 10 states for dog ownership, which pretty much sums up our ambivalent attitude toward animals whose poop we have to scoop.

Bellingham Herald is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
