Who are these people who are so violently opposed to the proposed "cat bylaw"? Anyone who scoffs at the idea that roaming cats are a nuisance has obviously never tried to grow a garden in the city. Granted, it's not a life altering issue like the war in Afghanistan or Global Warming. But it's not the job of City Council to deal with those big problems. City Council's job is to deal with the little day to day issues of the citizenry of HRM. And roaming cats are one of those little day to day issues. Your leg's not going to rot off because your toenails are too long, but does that stop you from cutting your goddam toenails? NO. Little problems need attention too.

Look, it's a stupid idea to require registration for cats. That's nothing but a tax grab. But no other domestic animal is permitted to roam at large. Dogs, snakes, cows, goats, ferrets, all have to be confined to the owner's property, or animal control will come and round them up. Why the hell should cats be exempt?

Keep your goddam cats in the house, or expect them to end up as Unlucky Fried Kitten.
