Compulsory cat rego comes to an end
LOCAL laws requiring cat owners to register their pets will cease this Friday.
Ipswich City Council has advised that the change follows the lead set by Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
Spokeswoman Sheila Ireland said mandatory cat registration had been an unsuccessful move.
"It's important to note that the change does not impact other laws about cats such as mandatory microchipping at point of sale or transfer," Cr Ireland said.
"Cats must also be contained to their own property and must not roam, and people need a council permit to keep more than two cats on a property."
