If you desex your domestic cat and keep them contained, they may live up to four times longer, according to cat management officer for Kingborough Council, Kaylene Allen.

Whilst many people do not like the idea of keeping their cat contained, this does not mean they are not allowed outside; rather, that there are measures in place to keep them in the confines of your property.

Kaylene is in charge of a new cat management program that has just been introduced on Bruny Island. She talks to Brian Carlton about some of the measures in the program, and the process to containing our feral cat population.
