  1. Ensuring your pet wears a collar with its registration tag attached
  2. To protect our native wildlife, wears a bell on its collar and does not roam at night or in such a way that causes nuisance to your neighbours
  3. Regular vet check-ups and vet assistance if your cat is injured or unwell
  4. Keeping your property clean by ensuring it is free from excrement, filth, food waste and other matter which is likely to become a health hazard and/or attract rats or other vermin and vectors of disease including flies
  5. That you comply with the Animal Welfare Act and the Cat Act
