The last Wednesday of February 28, getting to walk my dog after the visit with the vet, to that of 18: 30 in the afternoon, almost dusk, a cat attacked my dog on a site close to the vet where he had just come out and arano in the eye provicandole an ulcer, corneal, thankfully, mild in severity to moderate. Coincidentally, it turns out that these cats are colonies protected by the council of the area, and they have volunteers who care for and feed. It should be added that these are not in any type of enclosure fencing. To all of this, I would like to know what are my rights and the laws that regulate this, because if the city council is in charge of them, would also be responsible for the problems these cats could cause you to any other civil. In my case the dog all the time was with the belt, never loose, and in no time the attack of the cat was the result of a first attack by my pet. And that said, since I fulfilled my obligations I would like to file a complaint, demand or whatever that should be done in these cases to the city council; since if I am forced to meet certain standards and obligations of civil security and coexistence, should also remedy the fact that cats can also pose a hazard both to other pets and to people, as is the case of young children, being loose when they should be in a special room for their care, and did not suspect a threat.

The first thing to recommend is put in the hands of a lawyer who will study your particular case. If you have home insurance, it is possible to have legal assistance with your insurance and that you include in addition to your pet. These claims are complex, but indeed must be made against the local Council which is responsible for the cat colony... Usually presented a first claim directly to the town hall and depending on the result, as you will have to go to court.
Regardless of the legal issue, I ask for the dog: do you Have vaccination antirrabica?.

The transmission of rabies is through the bite (saliva). The nails of a cat (or any animal with paws) are a source of infection by bacteria mainly. As discussed above in the case of rabies, the animal affected would have an aggressive behavior and erratic. And yes, there are cats with enough arrests to attack a dog without provocation. My hijjos call him "the murderer", in this case you don't choose to flee as far as you can, but that remains to my dog and tries to acorralarla. It is a domestic cat.
