Cat Project – chance to participate closes soon

By - Wayne Linklater 27/06/2013

cat project survey pictureAs part of a Masters Research thesis we are investigating attitudes towards cat ownership and management in New Zealand and Australia.

The study Attitudes towards cats in Australia and New Zealand is being conducted through the School of Psychological Science at La Trobe University.

We are looking for participants of all kinds to complete the survey. We wish to gather attitudes and opinions from people who work with animals, work in animal welfare, own cats, feed cats and some that don’t even like cats. No matter your attitude we want to hear your opinions!

We hope this study will aid in ensuring the best welfare and practice of cat management in both Australia and New Zealand, as well as adding to information on the effect of cats on the environment.


The survey is anonymous, takes approximately 20 minutes, and is available to anyone aged 18 years or older. It can be found at:



The survey includes questions on:

  • Your opinions on council, state and national cat control methods and legislation
  • The terminology surrounding cats
  • Your opinions on feeding local cats
  • Your opinions on feeding local birds
  • Conservation and ecological values


If you or anyone you know would be interested in filling out this survey we would greatly appreciate it.
