If you are an Austin, TX lawyer,you may have heard of the Cat Lawyer.
In Texas, you can be sued for your pet’s care, behavior, and even the color of your hair.
But what about cats?
Are they covered by the law?
According to Texas law, cats are considered domestic animals and can only be treated as such in certain situations.
So, how does that apply in the city of Houston, Texas?
In fact, Houston has one of the strictest cat laws in the country.
In order to be considered a “pet owner,” you must be licensed by the city.
So if you are a cat owner, you may want to check with your local Animal Control department.
Houston’s pet owners may have to pay a $200 fee to have their cat checked for rabies.
You can also be sued by your cat owner for any damages that may result from the act of pet ownership.
The city of Harris County also has a $10,000 civil penalty if your cat bites someone or causes a person to be bitten.
And then there is Houston’s pet ordinance.
Under this ordinance, you must notify the city if your pet is going to be in your backyard or is in an enclosed space, even if it is just sitting on your porch.
If your cat is not considered a domestic animal under the city’s rules, your cat can be shot and killed for the purposes of public health.
This ordinance applies to dogs, cats, and ferrets as well as small rodents.
But cats are protected under this ordinance.
