Catnet Competition in March 2024

Supported by the RSPCA, Council is giving away eight cat enclosures to show that your feline friend can live a safe and fulfilling life indoors or in an outdoors structure.

The competition is one element of the RSPCA campaign and thanks to funding from the RSPCA, Council is giving away: 

  • eight Catnet vouchers (valued at $500 each) redeemed to create a personalised outdoor containment system for your cat 

  • accessories valued at $125 to bring the wow factor to their new enclosures – shade cloth, scratch post, catnip plant, cubby and litter tray. 

Entrants need to live in the Shoalhaven and answer the simple question ‘Why is it important to keep your cat safe at home?’.
