"You seriously think the city will use any of that money toward animal control, etc.? They'll just shunt into general revenues."
"This will do absolutely nothing to cut down on the number of unwanted cats. It's about money and just plain old making our lives more difficult... Dragging out the whole cat-licensing issue is a red herring the mayor and council are floating out there to distract from the horrid job they have done."

"I have to license my cat. Then I want cat parks just like dogs get dog parks, so my cat can safely go outside."
"I'm a proud owner of two wonderful indoor cats and I fully support licensing of all cats in the city... just saying."
"If I don't license them, will the city bylaw officer come into my home and take my pets?"

"I am all for the licensing of cats if 100% of the money from the licence goes to a spay/neuter program and the strays and ferals get the help from this city they need."
"Funny how cat owners are all up in arms! Never cared when they made us pay to license our dogs... Pay up, buddy."
"Glad that there are different prices for fixed cats and unfixed cats. However, once overpopulation is taken care of, then they will just make it a single higher cost for everyone."
"If you make it more expensive to adopt a cat, less people will do it. Animal shelters will now be dealing with more homeless cats, not less."
