Responsible cat ownership


Cats are beautiful and intelligent creatures and as a cat owner you have the responsibility to your cat, their community and the environment. Responsibly cared for cats are happy and safe, make great neighbours and don't threaten wildlife.

If you have visited the clinic with your cat you would know that we are bid advocates for indoor only cats. It keeps them safe from the dangers outside ( cat fights, FIV, cars ). They tend to be more affectionate and seek to be around you more. We often also recommend outdoor play areas for cats. There are companies that will build pens for you but if you are handy or know a handyman you can do it yourself. If you check out the website www.catnets.com.au they sell everything you need to make a run or pen and they have a great gallery that shows you what other people have made.
