Cat licensing is a paw closer to reality after a civic committee gave its blessing today.
The civic protection and community services committee approved a new $15 annual license for spayed/neutered cats and a $50 annual fee for intact cats.
Only chairman Coun. Scott Fielding (St. James-Brooklands) voted against the proposal.
The licensing proposal, which now goes to executive policy committee and then city council, would take effect Jan. 1, 2015 if approved.
The rest of the Responsible Pet Ownership bylaw — except for having chickens in the city — was also approved by the committee.
The bylaw includes bans on circuses having exotic animals in their shows and puts restrictions on what type and size of reptiles you can own. the committee’s vote on allowing chickens in agriculturally zoned areas of the city failed, so it goes on to executive policy committee with no recommendation from the standing committee.
