This week Cat Protection’s attention was drawn to the cat trapping program commenced in recent months by Hornsby Shire Council.
It has been suggested that we are involved with this program. Cat Protection is not involved with this program – nor are we involved with any other trapping programs.
You can always call our office (and please do) to verify whether any person or organisation claiming to represent Cat Protection actually does so.Read more

We were very excited to have John Kennedy playing a special set at the Cat Protection Society Op Shop. This momentous launch party was for their brand new single “Peter Says”.
The song tells the tale of a middle aged independent musician with a penchant for bargains from opportunity shops in Sydney’s Inner West suburbs. The Peter in the title is in fact, the drummer from John Kennedy’s 68 Comeback Special, Peter Timmerman.Read more

Outbreaks of the deadly Feline Panleukopaenia Virus (FPV, feline parvo, feline enteritis) were identified across Sydney in early 2017. It was the first outbreak in almost 40 years.
Many Sydney vets had never dealt with it due to the effectiveness of the standard F3 vaccine. However, the virus is highly contagious and in February, Blacktown Pound and other facilities were closed due to the outbreak.

The national RSPCA has recommended that feral cats should be declared a pest species.
Feral cats, lost cats, loved cats, stray cats, Siamese cats, moggies, tuxedos, Ragdolls, Burmese, tabbies, gingers, calicos … they are all the same species.
