Welcome to the Neighbourhood Cat Campaign

Your Cat magazine launched the Neighbourhood Cat Campaign to help raise awareness of the issues that concern cat owners about allowing their cats out into the great outdoors.

With the help of our sponsors, SureFlap and leading behaviourist Jon Bowen we surveyed both cat owners and non-cat owners to gauge the way cats are viewed in the neighbourhood. It showed us the key issues of conflict (namely toileting in flowerbeds and bird predation) and revealed polarized views of cats. In order to help cat owners ease neighbourhood relations by being more proactive, we pulled together a selection of practical advice to help owners with everyday issues. Check out the articles here on the campaign. You’ll also find more information on enriching your garden to encourage your cat to spend more time at home in our Outdoor cats section in Cat Advice.
