Cambridge Residents Fed up with Stray Cats

Updated:

CAMBRIDGE, Md.- People in Cambridge have recently been complaining about all kinds of stray cats, and one does not have to look far to find them.

Joe, a Cambridge man who did not want his last name to be used in this interview, said he is fed up with all the strays in the city.

"They turn over the trash cans every trash day all up and down the street," he said. "They stink the place up. So far, nobody has been bitten or scratched but I am just waiting on that."

Joe said he reached out to city officials and the local animal control office but they told him they do not have the funds or the resources to get all these cats off the streets.

"This year it got worse and I spent almost two hours on the phone yesterday talking with the humane society, some animal rescue, city police, city hall and everybody said we can't do anything," Joe said.

Shirley Peddicord said there has always been a stray cat problem but it is the people who deserve the blame, not the cats.

"They dump them," Peddicord said. "They don't want them, then they just discard them like trash."

This reporter reached out to area animal control officials about the concerns over the stray cats but phone calls were not returned.
