Here’s The Problem: On July 16th, 2010 it became mandatory for residents of Long Beach, CA to officially register their cats. To me, that is like having to register a large rat or even a gerbil. But that’s besides the point. There are costs associated with this registration. For young cats that are not fixed – $90.00, for young cats that are fixed – $20.00 – for old cats – $10.00.
Actual Problem: Feline Agism! What kind of message are we sending? That if you’re old you’re not worth as much???? It saddens me.
