Cat Management

People respond to cats in different ways and they can be many things to different people: much-loved pets valued for enjoyment and companionship; useful animals that control rats and other vermin; nuisance animals that annoy neighbours; and feral pests that spread disease and impact on native wildlife and agriculture. The polarised views in the community about cats make their management a challenging and often emotive issue.

The State Government has recently published the Tasmanian Cat Management Plan 2017-2022  to guide the implementation of various actions at all levels of Government and all sectors of the community to improve cat management in Tasmania.
