Cat management

For information on cat management requirements see the Cat Management Act 2009 and the Cat Management Regulations 2012.

Microchip your cat

Microchipping is compulsory in Tasmania for cats over the age of six months. If you do not microchip your cat, you will need to obtain an exemption. An exemption may be issued by a vet it they feel that implanting your cat with a microchip may adversely affect the health and welfare of the animal.  Microchipping is available through your veterinarian and the Ten Lives Cat Centre.
