Cat registration

The Town of Mosman Park allows you to keep two cats over the age of three months, per property.

From 1 November 2013, all domestic cats six months and older are legally required to:

  • be sterilised
  • be microchipped
  • be registered with a Local Council within Western Australia
  • wear a registration tag, issued by the local government where the cat was registered.

Cat Registration

Important to note:

  • When a cat is sold, re-homed, lost/stolen or deceased, it is the registered owner’s responsibility to provide the Town with this information within 28 days. Download the Update of Animal Ownership form here and send it back to us.
  • If your cat is found in or on another person’s property, the property owner may request an Authorised Officer (Ranger) to impound the cat and remove it from the property.
  • If the cat has not been sterilised or micro-chipped, the owner of that cat commits an offence. Cat owners that are not compliant with these requirements, after 1 November 2013 may be liable to fines of up to $5,000.
  • Under certain circumstances, an exemption can be granted by a Vet permitting a cat to not be sterilised or micro chipped. The Town will require documentation from your Vet advising that the procedure would have a negative effect on your cat’s health.

Breeding Cats

The legislation requires that a person who chooses to breed cats must apply to their local government for a permit. When a cat is sold, the seller must ensure the cat is micro-chipped and sterilised prior to transfer. If the cat cannot be sterilised due to its young age, a voucher must be issued to the new owner.

Only approved breeders will be exempt from sterilisation laws.
