You will require this approval if you intend to breed cats. All cats in Western Australia are required to be sterilised unless they are owned by an approved cat breeder for the purpose of breeding.
You will be considered a cat breeder even if you only intend to breed one litter from your cat.
When selling or giving away a cat, legislation states that it must be microchipped and sterilised prior to the transfer of ownership. If the cat is too young to be sterilised, you must provide a prepaid sterilisation voucher to the new owner.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
