The Scottish government has drafted a document that instructs people on how to care for their cats. The aim is that the document will provide basic information for people who are responsible for caring for cats. The document is 37 pages long and includes information such as what to feed cats and what sort of environment to keep them in. Much of the information contained in the document seems to me to be basic common sense. It does make me wonder how much time and money was spent preparing this welfare code and whether it could have been used more effectively elsewhere.
