GOSHEN, KY (WAVE) - A new ordinance in Goshen will require cat owners to keep their felines on leashes while outside.

The city recently added cats to an existing ordinance requiring dog owners to leash their pets.

Under the new ordinance all pets, including cats, must be "under owner's control with a leash" if taken off the owner's property.

Goshen's mayor says he doesn't expect to see many cats on leashes, but he hopes the law will address the issue of cats who have been roaming freely, digging up gardens and using people's yards as litter boxes.
