Starting New Year’s Day, the city can fine people up to $250 if they don’t have a licence for their furry friend.
The licence costs $15 if the animal is fixed or $50 if the kitty is intact.
Part of the money goes to spay and neuter programs to help control the cat population.
Cat licences are available online, at most pet stores or by calling the city's 311 phone number. (CJOB)
