Why don't cats have to have a leash, and are allowed to roam free? As a canine I find this discriminating!!!

Ted, sorry that you feel discriminated against, but the reason cats aren't required to be on a leash is because cats dont attack people like dogs do. Also, because cats are great about controlling the pest population in an area. Remember the Black Plague? If they would have just let cats go about their business killing vermon it would have saved millions of lives. Instead they erroneously blamed the problem on cats and set out to kill them all, which only made the problem worse.

Sam, you are so right. When someone has a mouse or rat problem, I say "get a cat."
