Yes, growing up on a farm, I always thought it was silly that we had to buy a license for the dog, but the 1200 lb steers, 400 lb hogs and dozens of
cats didn't require the same.
so you did have cats !!! Did you appreciate that they kept the rat population down ?
Were you taxed for them and did you keep them indoors only ???????????
And I covered the tax exempt status of cats in the post that you replied to.
My parents were in charge, I had no say in where the cats lived, although there were barn cats.
As far as the rat population was concerned... My mother was bitten on the forearm by a rat when she reached into a feed barrel. I had rats run across
my bare feet several times in the barn. The rats were very brazen at times. So, no, the cats didn't seem to help that situation much.

All the people contributing to this threads notion that it would be a positive thing to execute a bunch of cats should spend more time on the thread
titled "Smug hippies breathe their own farts to save the environment!"
If cats are taxed dogs should be taxed as well. This kind of tax is stupid but if you're going to institute it it's got to be fair.
How about a tax on horses? They poop on the road when people go out riding. I mean let's get serious here. Tax strollers for clogging up escalators
and sidewalks. Tax pet birds. Their toxic poop ends up in the landfill because the newspaper used to line the cage isn't recycled. Tax people for the
use of playgrounds. Tax TV like they do in the UK.
Absurd gets its exercise around here.

I think the humans that want to eradicate cats should be eradicated to protect the cats!
Also to the sick tickets who openly admit to killing cats, you have a serious problem and are probably a serial killer in the making. my cats have
always been strictly indoors due to the chance of being hit by a car and sickos like you.
I'll say one thing for sure, if I ever caught anyone harming my cat they would be taking me to prison soon after.
This one lady got sentenced to prison for a year and a half for shooting and killing a neighbors pet dog. I think that people that go around harming
other peoples pets deserve prison time.
