Boone County uses cats to keep courthouse clean
Fox59.com ^ | 03.01.2013 | Joe LePage

Two cats have free reign of a local courthouse and no one wants them gone. They are standing guard and keeping some unwanted guests away.

You no doubt have heard of bats in the belfry, but what about cats in the courthouse?

“I think it is a great idea, said Stacy Dempster. “I was shocked at first.”

Believe it.

Ah this might be the secret of the universe. Cats do indeed rule and make everything better

Lets just let those lovable fur balls take over the world . It would be a better place even if it does smell like tuna

Thank you for a most wonderful story. I will share it with my girl when she wakes from her nap

More like “smells like cat pee.” No thanks! Beware the fur balls and poop!
Can you tell I am a dog guy?

I used to live in a 2 story apt building. On the upper floor we only had roaches but the first floor had rodents so the residents punched holes between adjacent apartments so local cats could roam the building and clean it out. At the time the building was slated for teardown in a few months anyway.

For some reason I always thought you were a dog person.

Dogs AND cats? Now that's diversity......

I have NEVER been in a house with dogs that didn’t smell BAD. I have 4 cats and you would never know it. Because they bury their poop and i scoop it twice a day. WIth a dog, they just stink all the time....and the house always stinks.

I have never understood how someone can like cats or dogs, but not the other one. To me I have the same affection and feeling for both, they are just different animals.

Don’t the lawyers object when the cats keep covering them up with kitty litter?

We used to have a number of businesses in town with a kitty cat on hand to greet customers. No more. The county health dept forced them all out. Even if the store didn’t sell food products!

And a cat won’t dig in the litter box and EAT the poop...like most dogs will (including mine).

Apparently you did not get the memo from Cat Central.:

All poop will be scooped immediately.

No nasty dog snouts in the catbox!

Thank you very much,
Your Cat

We had a cat in our food store, which was totally against the law. Any time a inspector came in there was a mad dash to put her outside for a while, to avoid detection.

Customers loved her so....usually the first words were: *Where’s JP?* They looked forward to saying hello to her.

We never had a rodent problem. Only inspector problems. :)

A few granules of cat litter has to be better than the alternative on a $1.5K suit!

Yes they have, thanks. I was single and in my 20’s so it was sufficient for the time I needed it.

That’s wonderful. When I think back to my 20s, it’s a miracle I’m still alive to talk about it. That’s why I believe in Guardian Angels. :)

My Akita has zero odor unless he has gone for a swim in the river. Normally, he smells like a new fur coat. The river issue has nothing to do with a wet dog, either. It is the river, itself.

My cat, on the other hand, could blind you when she passes gas and occasionally we need a gas mask to change her clean litter after just one use.

I have noticed that multiple cat homes are often identifiable the moment the front door opens.

I will agree if the dog in question is a hound. I cannot abide their natural clean odor. But that is just hounds, not all dogs.
