— The Clayton Town Council was expected to vote Monday evening in favor of revising a set of rules keeping cats from roaming the streets.

However, in a 3 to 2 vote the council members decided to allow cats to remain exempt from a town ordinance, which requires pet owners to keep their domestic animals at home.

Most surrounding municipalities, including Raleigh and Cary, require cats to be leashed or fenced-in while outside.
