Why should we pay a licence fee for dogs and not cats.

I think it's unfair that residents of Pleasanton have to pay a licence fee for their dogs and cat owner don't pay anything. I know it's not my dog walking on peoples cars, roaming the streets, getting in other peoples yards and using their flower beds as a bathroom. The smell these animals cause is nasty. If dogs have to be on leashes then so should cats. I know my dog stays in my back yard or in the house. Cat owner have no resposibility for the damage there animals cause. How many of you have woke in the middle of the night because your dog is barking, only to find a cat is the cause of all the commoion. Does anyone think it's unfair to have to pay license fees for your dogs and cat owners don't.
