Idaho Capitol

I am a law abiding cat, and try hard to stay out of trouble.  But it helps to know what the rules are so you don’t break them.  I visited the Idaho State House where people make laws for Idaho when I was in Boise. It can be a long and complicated process, but I really enjoyed hearing about laws that might have made sense at one time, but sound silly now. For example, it is against the law for anyone over the age of 88 to ride a motorcycle, and riding a merry-go-round on Sundays is considered a crime.  It is against the law to live in a dog house unless you’re a dog. Some cities have their own strange laws.  In Pocatello, a person may not be seen in public without a smile on their face. In Tamarack, it is illegal to buy onions after dark without a permit. You also can’t sell chickens after sundown without permission from the Sheriff. Snakes have been banned from biting humans on a Sunday – except when it’s snowing. How do they explain to the snake about human laws?     Purrs, Gulliver
