In an effort to deal with an estimated population of 80,000 feral cats, Houston has enacted an ordinance making it illegal to feed them.
Although a "registered colony manager" program offers a safe harbor for doing so, some don't see the need to comply with the city's rules, reports the Houston Chronicle.
Among them is bar owner Charles Armstrong, who has angered some residents of the Montrose neighborhood by admittedly feeding feral cats.
"If the neighbors genuinely care, they need to get involved. What would Jesus do? I think he would give food and water to the kitties," he tells the newspaper.
