Custody over the dog or cat

It's interesting how more and more people are going to court over custody of their animals and I think it's something we're going to see a lot more of. No one ever wants to see a couple break up but instead of people tossing the cat or dog out, it's heartening to at least see that both individuals want to keep the animal.

Dear Dawn:

I am a student of sociology in Grinnell College, Iowa, USA. I am applying for the Watson Fellowship that will allow to travel around the world to study community cats and animal welfare practices.

I am in contact with Veron in CWS at the moment. As recommended by Kai Ling, I would like to contact you for ideas and suggestions.

At the moment, I am in Washington D.C. Please email me if you would be interested in helping my project. litingcong@gmail.com
And I will send you more details.

Thank you,

I know of a couple in Singapore who fought over the cats when they split up. Unfortunately it is harder to do "joint custody" with cats than it is with dogs: they generally don't like to be taken to a different flat every few days.

I know a couple who stayed together because of the cats.
