I try to keep up with the pending new laws, but this one has not received the attention that it should have!

The law clearly states that an average $250 tax will apply to all dogs and cats throughout the nation. While farm animals are still undetermined, taxes will definitely be imposed on any animal that can be considered a domestic pet. Evidently the tax for smaller pets such as hamsters, rats, snakes, ferrets, guinea pigs, etc. will be assessed at a reduced rate, depending on size.
