Within the Shire of Denmark all cats are required to be registered and microchipped.

Why do I need to register my cat?

Not only is it law under the Cat Act 2011 for all cats over six months to be registered, it is also important for both the general community and their cats that council has a record of cats and their owners. Registration allows council to provide for better facilities and conditions for responsible cat owners.

The benefits of registration are:

  • Positive identification of your cat
  • Reuniting lost or injured cats with their owners
  • Investigation and resolution of cat problems

The period of registration (or cat year) runs from 1 November to 31 October, regardless of when the cat is actually registered. Current registrations can be transferred between local councils within Western Australia.
