Bite means to be seized with the teeth or jaws so that a person or animal has been nipped, gripped, wounded or pierced, and saliva of the biting animal has contacted the resulting break or abrasion of the skin.
Cat means any member of the animal species Felis catus three (3) months or more in age.
Control of an animal means that same is on a leash not more than six (6) feet in length, is under voice control in the presence of a competent person, is on or within a vehicle being driven or parked, or is within the property limits of its owners or upon the premises of another person with the consent of that person.

Person means any individual, firm, corporation, partnership, association, trust, estate or other legal entity.

Voice control means that an animal:
