This is in response to Linda White's polite and sincere request to her neighbors, who allow their pets to violate her yards (letter Oct. 27). I applaud her efforts, but the truth is that her neighbors do not care.
By allowing their "beloved pets" to go out, defecate and destroy other yards, it shows what kind of neighbors they are -- just plain lazy and disrespectful. Why should they clean up after their pets when others will?
There's obviously no concern of them being chased by dogs, cat fights, or hit by cars. So how "beloved" and like "members of the family" are they really?
Sympathetic to her frustration, I, too, must endure such violation of my property on a daily basis. My yard was even a nursery to a litter of kittens, because of a "beloved" cat that was locked out of her own home!
But don't get me started on spaying and neutering.
