Posted January 21, 2018 08:24:28 When a house cat is living in your house, you are not allowed to touch the cat unless you have permission to do so.
Cats are not your property, so they must be given the same protection as you would a human.
However, the law does not give you any rights if you’re caught trying to touch a cat, like if you were caught trying a toy or if you accidentally knock on the door.
If you are caught doing this, you will have to pay a fine of up to $1,000.
The Australian Government has also introduced legislation that will criminalise cats in public places.
But there is still a long way to go in terms of this law being enforced.
Here are some tips on how to avoid a fine if you get caught trying: 1.
Keep cats away from you and your belongings 2.
Do not play with cats or touch them 3.
Keep your hands off the cat.
Do your best to make sure you’re not causing damage to the property.
Do try to get your cat out of the house.
