Keeping your cat safe

Cats make wonderful pets and bring pleasure and company to many families. However, if they’re not responsibly cared for and left to roam, they can:

  • Create a noise nuisance by fighting over territory or seeking a mate;
  • Spray their urine to mark their territory and may bury their faeces in the gardens of neighbours;
  • Get injured by cars or fights with other animals;
  • Have unwanted litters; and
  • Attack native wildlife.

With the right enclosure, toys and environment, your cat can live a happy and healthy life contained in your property.

For more information about how you can contain your cat and keep them happy head to the RSPCA website or you can speak with your local pet store or animal behaviorist for ideas.

Cats must be microchipped and registered so if they do happen to get out of your property, they can be easily returned to you.
