Please do the right thing for our cats and our precious wildlife and our community. Birds and reptiles in our gardens and bush don’t stand a chance against hunting moggies.

DOC has some excellent ideas to help us make our cats conservation friendly.

For a start: desex all cats, feed them regularly so they don’t hunt for food, put them in a cattery when you go away, feed cats before birds’ active time at dusk and early morning, keep them inside at night, fit them with collars and bells to warn birds, put bird baths and feeders out of cat-reach.

If you have a cat visiting your garden that you think may be abandoned please let us know. We will post a notice on this website or take the cat to the vet for information.
