INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Senate has given final approval to a measure supporters hope will improve the lives of stray cats in Indiana’s mobile home parks.

The measure ends a prohibition against feral cats running freely through mobile home parks, but only if the cats are caught by authorities, then spayed or neutered.

Supporters of the measure spoke of “community cats” that many neighbors look after and said there was no reason to dispose of them.

The proposal now heads to Gov. Mike Pence’s desk for consideration.
