Perhaps the time has come for the Colorado Legislature to consider legislation governing the ownership and use of dangerous cats.
Outside cats should be registered, background checks be submitted on the owner (at the owner’s expense) and a limited number of claws per paw allowed.
Felonious cats should be incarcerated at a state-run institution and all remaining claws be removed before being allowed back into society. Cats should no longer be allowed in the passenger cabin of commercial aircraft. A dangerous-goods certificate must be completed at the time of check-in, the cat locked in hard-sided container and claws retracted. This is a win/win situation. Dangerous animals contained, automobile finishes protected and another source of revenue for the Colorado Department of Revenue realized.
