A brief frolic outside may cost a woman her cat - The Boston Globe I can't believe this A woman adopted a cat from a shelter and is being sued by the shelter for breach of contract all because she took her cat outside on a leash and posted a video of it on FB. The owner of the shelter saw the video and is suing and wants the cat back. The adoption contract says the cat must be indoors only and can't be taken outside on a leash or anything. A lot of the comments are siding with the cat owner. Ok so the owner posted a cute video on FB like many other pet owners. And she signed the contract which she says she read and knows about the indoor only thing. Still there's no reason for a lawsuit because the shelter owner feels that the cat is not being scared for properly.
