Cats

CAT OWNER RESPONSIBILITIES
From 1 July 2018, state law will require all cats to be microchipped by 12 weeks of age, and for all cats born after 1 July 2018 to be desexed by 6 months of age. Exemptions apply for registered breeders etc.

Adelaide Hills Council does not currently require cats to be registered or contained, however these rules change between Council districts. If you are moving with your cat, please check with your new Council for their requirements.
