Thanks Roger. City and County Animal Control provide protective custody for arrested persons. Pets can be released to family, or put up for adoption, WITH CONSENT OF OWNER. They are contacted in jail and must sign a release. Pets are kept up to a month on behalf of the owner; longer stays can be arranged. Animal Control loves animals too, and seeks to keep pets with their owners. These pets are vaccinated upon entry, because proof of vaccine is hard to come by. Often, pet food is gifted to the owners.

I mean, arrested persons' *pets* are put in protective custody. All are housed at County shelter, as City Animal Control does not have kennel facilities. Years ago, I heard from a friend who worked there that a homeless guy was jailed for slugging someone who kicked his dog. The shelter gave his dogs vaccines and whatever minor treatment, and gave him a bunch of good stuff to take with him when he came to get his pup.

Poor cat’s probably very stressed.

Down voting is censorship of free speech and against the 1st amendment even if it's un-PC or downright offensive. If you find something offensive, stop reading. Stop this nonsense of deciding what someone else reads or doesn't.

LUVADUCK - as much as I hate the downvoting business, you are wrong about it being censorship and violating the 1st Amendment. 1) Censorship can only be done by gov't, not anonymous individuals on an internet discussion board. 2) Private entities (such as Edhat) can remove comments that violate policies, without violating 1st Amendment. Also, being able to express an opinion by downvoting, is actually an exercise of 1st Amendment rights. SO, although the whole downvoting function is clearly being abused and is annoying, I wouldn't go so far as to accuse anyone of violating our Constitutional rights.

I doubt the kitty is ok in a van all day hot as hell no water. Even if there is water it's hot by now.
