Keeping your cats inside is one of the best ways to keep them healthy and safe. Learn all about the dangers lurking outdoors that your cat can face as well as strategies to keep your beloved feline friends happy and healthy indoors.

We’ll also teach you how to create an outdoor enclosure or ‘catio’ so your friend can get the best of both worlds and enjoy a bit of the outdoor world whilst remaining safely contained.

Our friends at Zoos Victoria will be jumping on board to share how your cat care can help our native wildlife.

Thank you for the interesting and informative webinar on Keeping Cats Thriving Inside. I particularly liked the information about creating an outdoor enclosure as well as the information about having play sessions with your cat and how long at least to have these sessions. I learnt some new things about cats that l didn't know before.

This was such an informative session and I loved hearing from all speakers. I also appreciated learning about the impact keeping cats inside has on both the felines and the native animals outside. Thanks RSPCA Victoria!
