Cat Registration and Change of Details

Cat registration requirements

Under the Cat Act 2011, all cats above the age of six (6) months must be registered, sterilised and microchipped.*

Upon registration, the cat must wear its registration tag ie. on its collar.

Current registrations can be transferred between most local councils within Western Australia.

*Exemptions: A cat can be exempt from microchipping if a certificate is issued by a Veterinarian stating that the implantation of a microchip in your cat may adversely affect its health and welfare. If you require exemption from sterilising your cat, please contact us.
