Who will take care of my cat? Documenting your future wishes
Saturday 29 July
Most people find pre-planning legal documents complex and confusing. Very few people understand Wills, Powers of Attorney and Enduring Guardianship. For cat owners, knowing our feline friends will be cared for in the event we can’t care for them is a vital consideration in future planning. Our special guest speaker, Ruth Pollard, Assistant Director Legal Services, NSW Trustee & Guardian, will help you learn about taking control of your future – and making provisions for your cats in the event you can no longer care for them yourself.
What’s normal & what’s not in feline health
Sunday 6 August or Sunday 20 August
This talk will cover common healthy feline behaviours, and highlight signs that your cat may be unwell and in need of veterinary care. Delivered by Dr David Hughes of Concord Veterinary Hospital, this is a very important talk not to be missed. It will be of particular interest to those who have recently adopted, or are thinking of adopting, a cat. With such positive feedback last year, we will be holding two sessions so more people can attend this insightful talk.
The Good Neighbour Project: Wildlife matters
Sunday 6 August
Being a responsible cat owner means ensuring the welfare and wellbeing of your cat as well as protecting the local fauna and neighbourhood amenity. Put simply, it means being a good neighbour. A representative from WIRES will deliver a talk on wildlife matters not to be missed by cat-owners and non-cat owners alike. Learn what you can do to help protect the wildlife in your neighbourhood.
Saturday 19 August
Learn all about cat nutrition with this talk delivered by Dr Penny Dobson from Hills Pet Nutrition. Learn why feeding your pet a complete and balanced diet is vital to their health. Dr Dobson will cover the different life stages of cats and what is important nutritionally at each stage. Vital for those who’ve had a feline friend for a while to understand their cat’s changing nutritional needs.
Fleas and worms
Saturday 19 August
We all know that flea and worm protection is important for cats, but few outside trained professionals understand the consequences of failing to do so. This talk from Cat Protection’s Feline Services Manager Nerida Atkin, will open your eyes! Particular emphasis will be placed on age, and indoor/ outdoor living arrangements. Go beyond the basics with information on some of the problems that can arise from fleas and worms and how to prevent them.
Please call our welfare office Monday-Friday between 9am and 4pm on 02 9519 7201 to book your place for these wonderful free talks.
All talks are held at the Cat Protection Adoption Centre.
