A Utah woman was surprised to find that local ordinance in the city of Murray made it illegal for her to let her cat lie in the front yard.
“When Kate Anderson was first approached by animal control, she thought something terrible had happened to their cat,” according to Fox13. “Then, the officer gave her a citation, carrying the weight of two misdemeanor charges, for letting her cat lie on their own lawn.”
According to the report, someone took a picture of the cat and reported it to authorities.
“That’s telling me I have to call for my court date… for my misdemeanors… of having my cat outside,” she said, looking at the citation. “This is a cat who is neutered and micro-chipped and vaccinated, and is not a menace to society.”
She was charged with “having an animal at large,” and “not having an animal license attached,” both class B misdemeanors. The city of Murray defines “at large” as any animal that is not on a leash, apparently regardless of whether that animal is on private property.
Anderson was still able to laugh at the situation, though. During her Fox13 interview, the cat was running around in the yard.
“There he is, back at the scene of the crime,” she said as the cat laid down on the lawn.

Florida Senator Moving to Designate “Donald J. Trump Highway” in Honor of 45th President
One of the greatest presidents in American history.
Florida State Senator Anthony Sabatini will move to rename a highway in the state “Donald J. Trump Highway,” in honor of the 45th President.
Sabatini made the announcement in a tweet on Tuesday. US 27 ultimately travels from Miami, Florida, to Fort Wayne, Indiana, traversing the United States from south to north. The segment located in Florida would be renamed after Trump in Sabatini’s proposal.
This legislative session I will be sponsoring an amendment to rename U.S. Highway 27 as the “President Donald J. Trump Highway.” Looking forward to working on this important designation honoring one of the greatest Presidents in American History. pic.twitter.com/x2gNzv8pxv

Public infrastructure is increasingly named after Presidents while they’re in office or shortly after their departure. Several schools and highways have been named after former President Barack Obama less than five years after his departure from office. Every President in recent American history has received a highway named in his honor, usually after leaving office.
Republicans have strong majorities in both of the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, ensuring a strong chance that Sabatini’s highway proposal will ultimately succeed and become law.
President Trump is the first President in history from Florida, having changed his state of residency from New York to the southern state during his term in office. The President is slated to begin his post-presidency life by returning to the state on Wednesday, where it’s expected that he’ll reside at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
