I think you're it.Subbing to find out who the ignorant fool who makes this political will be. Cat thefts are everywhere and the supply chain can't keep up with the demand. Even if they catch these clowns the cats are gone and don't make it back to their owners. Stay vigilant folks and watch where you park.
And your elected officials respond with, "that's why you have insurance".It's a mess in Seattle Tacoma area. You'll get your car stolen, your house burglarized and your cat sawed off while your neighbors are telling you their car got stolen or jacked, their tools stolen outta their garage and their car is sounding like a NASCAR stocker.
A few years ago some idiot totalled my then-18 year old daughter's wonderful Matrix. It wasn't much, but it was hers. Ran perfectly even at 250K miles, as do all decently cared for Corollas. It wasn't her fault, but the numbnuts's insurance company wanted to play games with me on responsibility. (The cops weren't taking reports or issuing tickets that night, although they're on bodycam telling the guy "I would ticket you for this if I could.")Normally I would drop full coverage on the Yaris at this stage in its life (it is 10 years old and was worth about $3k prior to the pandemic). But now it is worth about $6k so I am keeping it fully insured for the extra $100-200/year or whatever it is.
I have heard the 'well, insurance will cover it so what's your problem?' so often it makes my head spin.
