Council has no power to collect cats that roam onto your property (eg, a neighbour's cat) as there are no restrictions on cats roaming other than in prohibited areas such as food preparation/consumption areas and wildlife protection areas as outlined in the Companion Animals Act 1998.
If a cat is a nuisance for any of the following reasons you can report it:
You need to advise council of the exact address of the nuisance cat and must also have witnessed the actual event that took place.
More information about a nuisance cat can be found in the Companion Animals Act 1998.
