Indoor cat focus group in the Bunbury region

South West Catchments Council facilitated a focus group session on Saturday 21st November 2020 to discuss the benefits and barriers of indoor cat ownership.

Focus group attendees

“It was great to hear from local Bunbury region cat owners about the rewarding experience of owning an indoor cat, especially the companionship benefits,” said SWCC Threatened Species Project Manager Jaya Vaughan. Feedback from the session will assist in the development of an indoor cat campaign for the Greater Bunbury Region.

“We will be working with willing cat owners in the region to promote the benefits of owning an indoor cat and we will look at addressing the main barriers that have been identified.”

A video showcasing local Bunbury indoor cat set ups and routines will be published in December. Local Bunbury region cat owners who completed a pet ownership survey in April – May are being invited to participate in the project however there are  more opportunities for other cat owners in the region to get involved. You may be an indoor cat owner or wanting to learn more about indoor cat ownership, to find out more, please contact Jaya Vaughan at [email protected].

Feedback provided by the attendees on why they choose to have an indoor cat.

This project is supported by the South West Catchments Council, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
