    Exclamation Dogs must be microchipped by April 2016 - it's the law

    I was not aware of this law. Just a reminder to others.
    Not sure why they didn't include cats in this too

    Follow your dreams, there not going anywhere, unless you act on them.
    Don't put off what you can do today.
    Don't buy wireless earpods, there not there yet.

    Hopefully there will be better compliance than the dog licence law!

    Yes cats should be included, although there is a happy feral cat population unlike stray dogs.

    I quote
    "Irelands cats and kittens have no protection or recognition under Irish law. The Irish Government class them as vermin, in the same category as mice and rats, offers them no protection and has no appointed Government department to take responsibility for them."



    That's what happens when you look shifty,roam about and do as you please....and don't give a fuck about anyone but yourself I guess
    (I must try and rebrand myself this year,as the above is slightly )

    Not really true, they issue cats pet passports.

    Cats are also protected by cruelty to animals laws so you can't use lethal traps for cats such as larger versions of rat traps.

    Everybody loves pussies!

    Mr Egan added, “The government in Ireland still have cats on vermin lists, which means you can do any amount of unspeakable things to cats and there is nothing anyone can do about it. This is completely out of order, we have been campaigning for the past five-six years to get cats on the animal rights list but the government do not want to hear about it! And the reason is simple, it is because if they put them on the animal rights list then they will have to allocate funds to help cats”.

    But they are specifically mentioned in the SI covering diseases to animals signed by the minister in 2010

    Okay they are not as regulated as dogs or horses, but they are regarded better than vermin.

    Checked the gov web site, felines, domestic or feral are not vermin, officially anyway. He must be exaggerating.
