Do you have any input as to how the new ordinance of requiring cats to have a licenses is doing with compliance? The last I heard very few people {2] are coming in for cat licenses. I guess when they have the free rabies clinic at the fire house, some one should be there to check licenses???

Yes, we understand that only a few cat licenses have been issued. The free rabies clinic will probably alert the Borough to unlicensed cats. Can't imagine anyone who loves cats would not have them innoculated against Rabies. We will post a reminder in late February about the free Rabies Clinic in March. There is no excuse for our pets not to get Rabies shots.

Thanks for writing in.....
