Cat Breeders

Did you know, even if you wish to only breed one litter from your cat, you are considered a cat breeder?

If you are a current cat breeder or wish to become a breeder you must apply for a cat breeding permit from your local government. These permits are valid for 12 months and a fee is applicable.

When a cat is sold or given away, the seller must ensure the cat is microchipped in the new owner's name and sterilised prior to transfer.

If the cat cannot be sterilised due to its health or age, the seller must provide a certificate from a veterinarian stating the reasons for the exemption. NOTE: This does not apply to cats under the age of 6 months.

How many cats can I have?

The Shire of East Pilbara has a limit of two cats per property. If you wish to keep more than 2 cats, you must
first apply to the Shire of East Pilbara.
