Many Tasmanians consider themselves cat lovers, but with our state’s growing cat population, there are many kittens not getting the wonderful lives they deserve.

However, legislation expected to be passed before the end of this month hopes to put an end to the concerning issue.

The new laws would require cat owners to have their feline friends microchipped, desexed and confined to their property.

Joining Fairsy to discuss just how easy and beneficial these changes would be is founder of Just Cats Tasmania, Rachel Beech.

“One cat in a seven-year period can produce 3,000 kittens,” she says.
