Free Range Cats?

I heard something against my screen door the other day and looked out the peep hole and saw nothing. I sat back down and heard a weird scraping again, so I opened the door thinking I had a flyer on my door or something. Imagine my surprise when I looked down and saw a cat rubbing up against my door. 

I tried to call her or him over but as you can see he or she just gave me a look. lol So I pulled out the camera and took a couple of pictures. Then all of the sudden my neighbor just 2 doors away from me starts yelling for her cat and chasing her down the sidewalk *this cat* and the cat kept running away from her which I found funny. She, however did not and kept walking by my door giving me dirty looks. 

I have nothing against cats, I really don't. I just think they belong indoors. People who let their cats roam all over the neighborhood are taking chances that someone like me will bring your cat inside my home and call animal control or try to find them a good home on Craigslist. I've done it with plenty of stray cats and dogs in my area.

If you're going to let your cat out, like this one at the very least put a collar on it so people know it's not a stray and don't call animal control on it and can bring it home to you if it gets lost. It's just the responsible thing to do.
