Boulder, Colo. (AP) A Boulder official wants to push an ordinance that would require cat owners to keep their pets inside so they don't kill birds and other animals.

Boulder Open Space Board of Trustees member Bruce Bland says domestic cats that are allowed to wander outdoors are responsible for the suffering of many small mammals and birds. Bland's idea has caught the attention of some Boulder city council members who say they're interested in exploring it.

The City of Aurora already has an ordinance that asks owners to keep their cats within their property's boundaries. But officials there say the point of the ordinance is not to protect birds but to ensure the safety of the cats.
