Obligatory Canine Microchipping?

I figured that that slightly surreal headline might catch your attention. According to this story, it appears that British dog owners may soon be legally obligated to equip their pets with subcutaneous microchips to aid in the pets’ identification.

The story continues, “Postmen are delighted, but civil libertarians grumble that Britain's sprawling surveillance state now wants to track the nation's estimated 8 million dogs”.

Did anyone notice that cats are not mentioned anywhere in the article?
