Cats Cause Scary Situation at Board of Aldermen Meeting

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A guest appearance by two cats caused quite a stir at the St. Louis Board of Aldermen meeting Friday.

The cats were carried in by supporters of the Animal House Fund stray cat shelter.

Aldermanic President Lewis Reed, who is allergic to cats, began coughing and gasping for air.

It became so bad, Reed left the meeting early to give himself an allergy shot.

On the way out, the aldermanic president told reporters the allergic reaction was causing his throat to close up.

Aides say Reed went home after his allergy shot and was feeling better.
