You could practically hear the sigh of relief from cat owners in Concord, Massachusetts after a petition by a resident there to restrict where cats can wander was voted down at a town meeting Thursday.

We reported on Monday that Concord resident Lydia Lodynsky proposed articles that would have called for the town to hire an animal control officer, require cat owners to vaccinate and license cats, and adopt a campaign for responsible pet ownership.

Lydia said that her backyard bird sanctuary was ruined and numerous bluebirds killed because her neighbors refused to restrain their cats.
