Is it true that in Switzerland I have to pay a tax if I have a pet cat?

Hi there,

There is a lobby behind the implementation of a cat tax with some political parties arguing that such a tax would be in the best interest of the environment (birdlife, for example). However, this argument is heavily disputed and no such tax is currently levied in Switzerland.
