Aiken, South Carolina — The city is back in business, with a new mayor, and the mayor is running for re-election.

The city of Aiken is a long-time favorite for foodies who have enjoyed its unique atmosphere and delicious food.

But for the first time in over a decade, the city is facing the threat of a new pest.

The city’s residents, including many who are allergic to cats, have complained about the number of cats roaming their streets.

The problem has been compounded by a recent outbreak of what some residents call the “feline plague” — a highly contagious, non-venomous bacterial infection of cats.

In Aiken this week, residents found out they can’t take their cats out without first having their health tested.

The testing, which can cost upwards of $2,000, is being done by a private company called Health and Fitness in response to the city’s pet-friendly policies.

It’s a policy that Aiken officials have been trying to implement for more than a decade.

They say that a cat in a household has to be a registered pet to have access to the cat food and water and the ability to leave their house.

The cat-proofing program was implemented in 2010 and has since been expanded to include cats with medical conditions.

The City Council approved the policy change earlier this month, and it was signed into law by Mayor Mike O’Brien.

It is the first major citywide policy change since the cat-borne disease outbreak in 2015.

O’Brian says he believes the policy will help Aiken become more pet-friendlier.

He said, “The policy is really about giving us a little bit more control over what we’re going to allow in the neighborhood, and not allowing the city to become an easy place for a pet owner to get into a home.

That is not the city we want to be.”

Aiken residents have been complaining about the cats for years, and now they are being told to keep their cats indoors until they have health tests done.

In the past, the cats have been left on the streets in droves.

In recent months, there have been numerous reports of cats that were left in the streets unattended for hours or days.

The residents of the city are not allowed to take their pets out without a health certificate.

City Councilwoman Brenda Lewis said the cats in the city must be neutered.

“I’m a very strict person.

If there’s a health concern, I’m going to get it resolved immediately,” she said.

She said it was a city policy that allowed for cats to be kept in the street until they had been vaccinated.

City officials said they were not aware of any other citywide restrictions on cats and said the testing of cats will be done by the city health department.

The health department said the city did not receive any complaints about the policy.

Health officials said that cats in Aiken do not have to be neuters and that the cats can be spayed or neutered if necessary.

Lewis said she’s been doing the tests on her own cats and she said the results are good.

She hopes that the policy helps Aiken’s residents and the city of Charleston and the surrounding area become more cat-friendly.

“We need to get rid of the cats because they’re not welcome here,” she told KSCR-AM.

Lewis is also asking the city council to adopt a “Cat-Friendly Code of Conduct” that is written and signed by the mayor.
