The Dom Post reports:
Zealandia will become little more than a “cat food factory” unless something is done about wandering felines, the Wellington City Council has been told.
Hearings began today for submissions into the council’s draft annual plan, with philanthropist and anti-cat campaigner Gareth Morgan among the first to address councillors.
He advocated councils making micro-chipping mandatory for cats to determine ownership, so un-owned cats could be “zipped” and any pets caught wandering could be returned for a fee. There should also be a 24-hour curfew on cats, with them only allowed out on leashes.
Yes, cats only allowed outside on leashes. I can see that happening – not.
