    Surprise, surprise, vets welcome new business.

    There are around 20,000 non-feral cats in Wellington without micro-chips. With ad ons this policy will probably be worth about $2 million to local vets. Of course these people are happy.

    Translation: Vets welcome the council’s decision to increase their profits at the expense of Wellington residents.

    Vets making an earn is not the important part of the issue, though Nygllhuw Morris of NZ Companion Animal Register must be wondering how he will fill the demand for microchips. This piece of news really needs to be read alongside the press release from the NZ Veterinary Association. In our view it amounts to one creepy piece of candy coated social engineering poison. Safe and sound eh? We and our Cats were just fine until this business was laid on us, now we feel anything but ‘safe and sound’.

    Compulsory Microchipping = Mass Exterminations as we have demonstrated via the leaked documentation from WCC. Your silence will not save you, mobilise and actively oppose them all. For if you do not, there will soon come a time when you will not be allowed to keep a Cat.
