In Your Opinion: Pets can prosper even with smoke

I need to respond to L. Hall’s opinion from May 9. Even though my family’s three cats currently (and four prior) may be healthier without smoke, they are treated as family.

None of them had or have the symptoms you wrote of. They are fed well, get annual checkups, are petted and groomed, and taken outside in good weather. 

Isn’t this better than being in a cage, or abused, or euthanized? Instead of wanting fewer owners, you should advocate for more. Shelters are overcrowded. Maybe the problem is not enough smoke-free homes have pets. But you probably can’t see that through your prejudicial eyes. It must be great to have no bad habits and model-ish looks. You lucky Dilbert.
