Black Cat LayingResponsible pet owners look after their pet’s health and wellness and also make sure their pet is a positive addition to the community.

While spaying or neutering your cat is not required, it is recommended. "Fixing" your pet improves overall health, reduces roaming and prevents unwanted litters.

Cats are best kept inside a secure yard on your property. Cat owners are required to make sure their pet does not wander onto other people's property.

If you have an unwanted cat on your property, politely ask your neighbour to keep their cat on their own property. If you do not know the owner of the cat or speaking to your neighbour does not resolve the problem, you may consider using a cat trap.

Cat Traps

Enforcement Services does not capture stray or at large cats, but it does lend animal traps to residents and a Peace Officer will pick up cats trapped in a City trap. Traps can be borrowed for five days at a time, on a request basis. It is illegal to put an animal in distress, so home owners must be willing to check the trap frequently and must provide food, water, shelter for the trapped cat until it can be picked up by Enforcement Services. Traps will not be set at any time when the temperature is colder than -10 degrees.
