Red Alert! PETA Calls On Stroud Residents to Keep Cats Indoors

Stroud – In the past few weeks, five cats have reportedly died from anti-freeze poisoning in the Paganhill Estate area of Stroud, and PETA is responding with a red alert, calling on all residents in the area to keep cats indoors.

In addition to the risk of ingesting poison – either by accident or by the cruel and deliberate actions of callous people – cats who are allowed to roam outdoors are in danger of being hit by cars, contracting fatal diseases, and becoming lost, among many other hazards.

“The horrific deaths these cats endured is a reminder that it’s never safe to let our companion animals outdoors unattended, even for ‘just a minute’,” says PETA Vice President of Programmes Elisa Allen. “Cats count on us to protect them, and the best way to do that is by keeping them safe indoors.”

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way” – notes that the best way to maintain cats’ health and safety is to keep them inside with plenty of toys and catnip, a clean litter tray, and an easily accessible cat scratcher.
