(WEYI) The city of Bay City, Michigan is considering limiting the number of cats residents can own.
City leaders say Bay City is teeming with stray cats and something needs to be done. They're proposing a three cat limit.
"It really comes down to nuisance issues versus number of cats. Yes, a large number of cats we all know can create problems if not properly cared for," says City Commissioner Christopher Girard.
Jeannie Wolicki-Nichols loves her cats. She can't imagine being limited to just three.
"That is absolutely absurd to me," says Wolicki-Nicols, the president of Bay County's Humane Society. "I don't think a community could do that to people that love their animals."
