Cats in Brookings are still free to roam the city.
A proposed ordinance that would have prohibited cats from running at large died for a lack of a second at Tuesday's city council meeting.
The council considered the ban on roaming cats after a resident complained about a feline that has been drifting through his yard for years.
No citizens spoke up on in support of the measure.
