    We are one of the fringe cat groups referred to by Roz Robinson of Cat Haven as oposing the bill. I have been running Cat Sterilisation Society for 22 years and having sterilised over 51,000 cats depending entirely on volunteers. We opposed this bill because it meant all the cats we have sterilised for the Aboriginal community and on Industrial sites will now be at risk of destruction as they will not be micro chipped or registered.
    Registration also means more councils making curfews and numbers per household. This put even more cats at risk of death
    and our members who have taken in extra cats over the years wil live in fear of Councils
    who see more than 3 cats as a problem. Currently we are sterilising female cats for $60 this includes micro chipping and male cats for $50 this includes micro chipping..
    No doubt we will be out of funds before the law comes into effect and as the Government did not consult us at all we only fee under valued and wonder why as individuals we spent over 30 hours per week rescuing cats, answering the phones and fund raising Yes we do feel the big animal organisations are our enemy but then we are mere volunteers.

    You make an excellent point. All these ideals and ambitions re council laws and permits and registrations… but that in many ways does fly in the face of the TNR schemes, which the G2Z does support, and it kills cat lovers who can accomodate more than 2 cats comfortably. Not everyone with lots of animals are hoarders.

    If only it were as easy in the east as Roz makes it sound in the west… sigh.
