My friends at the Fremantle Animal Hospital in Ellen Street are offering Puppy Preschool Classes, so if you have a new puppy and want to teach it to love living with humans and a bit of obedience this is the way to go.

Call 6223 0999 to books a place.

NO GO ZONES FOR FREMANTLE CATS

Posted in cat, city of fremantle, local government, pet, Uncategorized by freoview on May 18, 2020

 

Fremantle Council has adopted a new local law to protect native wildlife from predation by cats.

The City of Fremantle already conducts a regular trapping program for cats and other feral animals in parks and nature reserves.

The Cat Management Local Law designates 12 areas within the City of Fremantle as cat prohibited areas, including parks like Booyeembara Park and Sir Frederick Samson Park, beach and river reserves and golf courses.

If any registered cat is captured in one of the cat prohibited areas the owner would be committing an offence and subject to a $200 fine.

It is a legal requirement in Western Australia that all domestic cats over 6 months old be sterilised, microchipped, wearing a tag in a public place and registered with their local government.

The new cat law will also require cat owners to have a permit to keep more than three cats.

Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt said he hoped the new local law would encourage responsible cat ownership.

“Roaming cats can kill and disturb native wildlife and can cause a nuisance through spraying and fighting,” Mayor Pettitt said.

“They’re also in danger of being hurt by vehicles or by fighting with other cats, and may interact with wild populations and produce unwanted kittens.

“Prohibiting cats from certain natural areas and encouraging owners to be responsible for their cat’s whereabouts will reduce the impact on local wildlife as well as keep domestic cats safe.”

The new local law is now required to be published in the State Government Gazette, and will come into force 14 days after gazettal.

The 12 cat prohibited areas are:

  • Booyeembara Park
  • The Royal Fremantle Golf Course
  • The Fremantle Public Golf Course
  • Bathers Beach Reserve
  • Sir Frederick Samson Park
  • Cantonment Hill
  • Leighton Beach Reserve
  • Port Beach Reserve
  • Rocky Bay Reserve
  • North Fremantle Foreshore Reserve (including Prawn Bay)
  • South Beach Reserve
  • Hollis Park, Sandown Park and any other land within the boundary of the former South Fremantle landfill site

Your cats will adore you forever if you take them to the new Cat Cafe on Hampton Roiad, because the cafe is next to the fish&chips shops and cats love fish.

THE SOUTH FREO POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK

A picture says a thousand words. Spotted this in South Fremantle an hour ago. It is a typical pot calling the kettle black situation as the tiny piece of land does not actually looks well cared for.

Pick up after your dog? What a pooper.

HOW MUCH IS THAT DOGGY AT THE A-SIGN?

barber dog

 

I absolutely love the quirky and unexpected things one comes across when walking the streets of Fremantle. Street photography for me is all about recording real life and the lifestyle of a place, in the knowledge that future generations will see my photos and get an understanding of what life was like in the 2000s.

Walking through William Street this morning I noticed this cute little dog all packed in for winter waiting at the barber shop.

CAT BUDDY TOOK RIDE FROM FREO TO VIC PARK

If anyone in the Fremantle Beaconsfield area is missing their little cat Buddy, it took a ride with a courier to Victoria Park. I have a note on my Facebook page about it and they say they contacted the City of Fremantle, so I assume COF know more as there is no contact number or name of the courier company.
