The ACT Cat Plan's laws against free roaming cats took effect in July 2022. This makes TNR illegal and unsocialized cats that cannot be taken into a home are to be hunted and killed, all in a misguided effort to protect ACT wildlife from cat predation. It is imperative that the government understand that well-managed colonies of sterilized cats are fed regularly and therefore pose little threat to wildlife. These cats are also vaccinated, which ensures they will not spread zoonotic diseases. Managed colony cats should be considered owned by their caretakers and be exempt from the Cat Plan's indoor-only cats rule.
Sign this petition for ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr to show your support for exemptions for managed colony cats. Their lives are in danger!
