There are rumors that some members of Congress are considering pushing a bill that would make it illegal for dogs and cats to live together in the US.
Supporters of this bill are claiming that cats and dogs living together attack the moral fabric of society. One person, who spoke to us on condition of anonymity, said the idea of dogs and cats who cohabitate is essentially an attack on family values and sets a bad example for children.
Opponents of the bill argue that it violates cats and dogs’ constitutional rights. Many others believe dogs and cats should enjoy the same rights that are given to other animals such as pigs, ducks and zebras. Organizers have already began to rally people to protest this bill before it can become law. Some have started obtaining petitions, while others have taken to the streets to set up peaceful demonstrations.
It is unlikely this bill will receive ample to support, but there are still many concerned families who currently own both cats and dogs. These families fear that if this bill does become a law, it will cause a split between family members on which animal to keep.
