Registration is compulsory for cats.
Be a responsible cat owner
Desex your pet at an early age so that the natural instinct to wander won't overcome it and it will be content to stay within the confines of your home.
A desexed cat will not go looking for a fight, but it will yowl at night, spray and cause unpleasantness and sleepless nights for your family and neighbours.
Feed your cat after you have brought it inside for the night - or it may wander once it has a full belly.
Keep your cat securely confined to your home at night so that it cannot get into fights with other cats, get runover, or hunt.
If you cannot keep your cat inside your home then place the cat in the garage and always provide a litter tray, clean water, food and some bedding so the cat is comfortable for the evening.
Cats are nocturnal creatures and are quite content to sleep away the day and with nightfall, our friendly family felines transform into hunters.
With the focus on our depleting natural resources and fauna population we can see why the environmentalists and the like, target the cat as a cause of the problem.
A bell attached to the collar acts as a warning to birds.
Cats often will prefer to just play with whatever it is they are stalking whether it is a garden lizard, a moth or a small bird. Mostly the animal will die of exhaustion rather than injuries inflicted by its feline playmate. Placing a bell on the cat's collar will provide a warning to the creature that is being stalked.
