All cats over the age of six months must be sterilised, micro-chipped and registered with the Shire.
Registration helps you to recover your cat if it is lost and assists the Shire to encourage responsible cat ownership.
How do I register my cat?
You will need to complete and sign a registration form. A person under the age of 18 years may not register a cat. Once you have completed the form, please return it to the Shire office with payment and a cat tag will be sent to you.
All registrations are due on 31 October each year and can be renewed for either one year, three years or lifetime.
