Local residents of the Tweed, who currently keep their cats at home, have shared their stories about how they do it.

Love Cats Love Wildlife is a three year project, funded by the NSW Environmental Trust, to promote cat welfare and the protection of our natural environment. The project works with cat owners to better understand their needs and to provide more information about the benefits of keeping cats safely at home.
