Cat LawsIn line with our weekly blogs of weird laws from across the country, let’s look at some weird cat laws.  Last week we saw 5 random weird laws from all around the US.  Let’s see what weird cat laws are out there!

Here are this weeks weird cat laws.  Enjoy!

Kansas: It is illegal to own more than a certain number of cats in Wellington, Kansas.

An ordinance in Wellington limits the number of cats you can own to four.  That’s about 3 cats too many in my opinion. (I’m more of a dog person)

New York: It is illegal to eat cats.

According to the law, New York prohibits "any person to slaughter or butcher domesticated dog (canis familiaris) or domesticated cat (felis catus or domesticus) to create food, meat or meat products for human or animal consumption."

Illinois: It is illegal to give lighted cigars to dogs, cats, or any other domesticated animal in Zion, Illinois.

I would hope people would know better than to give their animal a cigar!

Minnesota: Cats are forbidden from chasing dogs up telephone poles in International Falls, MN.

Since when do dogs climb up telephone poles?

Michigan: If you own a cat in Reed City, MI, you may not also have a pet bird.

Violation of this law will cost you $25.  Cat or bird? Tough choice…
