All my cat-loving friends will be delighted to learn that Portland ranks as one of the 10 most cat-friendly cities in the U.S. From the Portland Business Journal:
Portland is among the top 10 cat-friendly cities in the nation, according to a new organization called CATalyst Council.
Phoenix-based CATalyst Council is a coalition of the veterinary community, academia, nonprofits, industry and animal welfare organizations,
The cities named include Tampa, Phoenix, San Francisco, Portland, Denver, Boston, Seattle, San Diego, Atlanta and Minneapolis. The list was compiled after reviewing the top 25 standard metropolitan areas for such data as cat ownership per capita, level of veterinary care, microchipping and cat-friendly local ordinances.
