All cats must be microchipped.
For cats born or adopted after 1 July 2018 they must be microchipped at the point of sale or by 3 months of age. Microchipping is a safe and permanent means of identifying your cat for life.
You don't need to register your cat, however, you're required to register your cat’s microchip details at Dogs and Cats Online (DACO).
Cat microchipping needs to happen within 14 days of adopting or taking ownership of your new cat.
There is no fee to register your cat's microchip in our Council area.
