Last week’s decision by the Copperas Cove City Council to rescind a controversial amendment to the city’s animal control ordinance was the right one, albeit for perhaps the wrong reason.

In a 5-1 vote Tuesday, the council reversed itself on its Sept. 3 passage of a statute that made it illegal to feed feral cats or release them within city limits, punishable by a fine of up to $200.

        You couldn't comment on the other about the cats and petition. They said feral cats are cats that are afraid of people and run from them, well I have two cats and when someone strange comes into the driveway or they see someone they don't know they hide. They come to me and my daughter. They just don't like people ( I really don't blame them) they only like people they know. Just because an animal is afraid doesn't mean it is feral, it means they don't truat people and honestly in this day and age I don't blame them.
