Milo the cat just wanted to lay outside in the
sun and relax. Instead, his owner is getting cited with criminal charges.
Kate Anderson from Murray, Utah recently let
little Milo outside to nap in the sun in the front of their garden.
Milo is a beautiful ginger tabby who is
neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and well-behaved. Like many other felines,
Milo is an indoor/outdoor cat who likes to go where be pleases.
On this particular day, little Milo was just
minding his business, snoozing outside, when an anonymous passerby – possibly
one of the neighbors – took of photo of him and sent it to animal control, all
unbeknownst to Kate.
It was long after, that an animal control
officer came knocking on Kate’s door.
At first Kate panicked, thinking something tragic
had happened to her beloved Milo. Instead, she was shocked to find that she was
being issued a citation, which carried the weight of two misdemeanor charges!
And it was all down to that anonymous phone call.
Milo was being treated “like a fugitive or
bank robber,” all because of an old Murray city ordinance that was enacted way back
Naturally, Kate was shocked to learn that Milo’s innocent sunny day nap was illegal.
