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

All cats must be micro-chipped, sterilised and registered with the Town from the age of six months under the Cat Act 2011.

As a responsible pet owner you are encouraged to:

  • Keep your cat confined to your property, especially at night
  • Ensure your cat is easily identifiable with a collar and a name tag
  • Vaccinate your cat

Responsible cat ownership

From 1 November 2013 all domestic cats 6 months and older are required to:

• Be sterilised;
• Be micro-chipped;
• Be registered with a Local Council within Western Australia; and
• Wear a registration tag, issued by the local government where the cat was registered.

Please download a Cat Registration Form.

Please Note: 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.


Registration fees:

Standard $20.00 $42.50 $100.00


Eligible Pensioners are eligible for a 50% discount to the applicable fee but must provide a current Pensioner Concession Card, Pensioner State Concession Card, Veteran’s Pensioner Card (not a Veteran's Health Card) or a Senior’s Card together with a Commonwealth Senior’s Health Card as proof of eligibility.



Apart from being a legal requirement for all cats to be sterilised and micro-chipped as of 1 November 2013, it should be noted that micro-chipping of pet animals is a safe and effective method of ensuring that, if these animals become lost, it is an easy process to reunite them with their owners.

The benefits are:
• The insertion of the chip, under the skin is a quick and painless procedure
• The microchip cannot fall out
• The microchip will remain “active” for the life of the animal
• The procedure only takes a few seconds; and
• Your pet can be identified immediately.

Under the Cat Act, there are 6 authorised microchip database companies. You must ensure that your cat is registered with one of them.

• Central Animal Records (Aust) Pty Ltd Ph: 03 9706 3187;
• HomesafeID Ph: 1300 537 140;
• Petsafe Ph: 02 8850 6800;
• Australasian Animal Registry Ph: 02 9704 1450;
• National Pet Register Ph: 1300 734 738, and
• Global Microchip Registry Pty Ltd (trading as Global Micro Animal Registry).


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.

Some further facts regarding your cat:

• Only 2 cats are permitted to be registered to a property;
• Only a registered cat breeder may have an unsterilised cat;
• All cats must be micro chipped, sterilised and registered;
• There is an option for lifetime registration of a cat.
