Why Does Amy Paulin Hate Cats?

Amy Paulin’s newly amended “Quiet Kill Bill” contains a very curious section. Do cats not deserve the same protection as dogs? The section of the bill that amends Section 373 of the agricultural and markets law gives some of the guidelines for the treatment of lost, stray and homeless animals (which of course, do not apply whatsoever to owner surrenders, which the shelter may treat any way they want). One of the provisions specifies that shelters shall:

PROPERLY SHELTER, FEED, AND PROVIDE WATER TO THE ANIMAL DURING THE TIME THE DOG IS IN THE POSSESSION, CARE OR CONTROL OF SUCH OFFICER, SOCIETY, POUND OR SHELTER

Dogs only? Does Ms. Paulin really hate cats, or was this legislation really that hastily and poorly drafted and proofed? Is this the kind of thought she put into this bill?

    After all the flak she got, including so called “threats” this is the care & concern she puts into her work? A third grader would even have noticed the glaring omission!

    It is even more absurd that despite this deficiency and all the other problems with the Paulin bill, it is supported by ASPCA, Animal Law Coalition and the NYC Bar Association. I don’t know if they are incompetent, evil, or a combination of both. Please, let’s pass Kellner’s bill, the true shelter reform bill.

    My thoughts exactly. Specifies dogs only. There are other species that come through their gates of hell. More cats than dogs. Also rabbits, etc.

  • THAT WOMEN IS IN THE WRONG JOB. GET OUT NOW.

    Amy Paulin will burn in hell.

    It seems someone was rushing… As someone suggested, Amy Paulin is in the wrong line of work. Methinks she will have to get a new job after elections.

    This is stupid. All animals deserve the same amount of care and love !!!!!!!

  • Mike

    She needs to get out of this type of work PRONTO! Mean person! >:-(

    Poorly worded or on purpose??????agricultural and markets law?????I wouldn’t pass this…it needs attention…Should go to media…any animal coming in should have the same treatment..I am sick of cats being called feral because they’re terrified…You can’t trust the big name shelters…they are supose to be on the animals side..where are the people fighting for them????

  • Mardy Smith

    I am so in agreement with Vikie. More cats get killed everyday because the hissed, growled, or swatted at someone and are labelled as feral because of it. They aren’t feral just scared to death. Cats HATE change. I have cats and can atest to this fact. Just move a piece of furnature or bring in a bag and see how they react. These babies need protection that is specific to them. What about rabbits, horses and the like? Don’t theyhave rights too? I do NOT believe any of these animals should be killed just because they are homeless, lost, forgotten, or dumped. We need to become a NO KILL nation.
