Cat Registrations

Cats that live within the Shire of Chittering boundaries are required to be registered with the local authority.

Cat renewals are sent out at the end of October each year.

Should your cat(s) not be registered and you get a visit from a Ranger, it may cost you much more than the registration fee.

As of 1 November 2013 all cats that have reached 6 months of age are to be sterlised, micro-chipped and registered with the Shire of Chittering.

Cat registration forms are only available from the Shire.  To have one posted out to you please contact a Customer Service Officer on 9576 4600 or email chatter@chittering.wa.gov.au.
