Cat owner’s responsibilities

Cat licences

All outdoor cat owners or keepers must ensure that their cat has an annual licence payable on the first day of July each year.

Annual licence fee

  • for an outdoor cat that is spayed or neutered and which bears a microchip or a tattoo:  $15
  • for an outdoor cat that is spayed or neutered, but does not bear a microchip or tattoo:  $20
  • for an outdoor cat that is not spayed or neutered as a result of a medical exemption (a cat that is 10 years or older or has a medical exemption from the veterinarian attesting to the fact that the cat cannot be spayed or neutered): $25

Should the cat identification tag be lost or destroyed, the person to whom it has been issued shall present the receipt for payment and pay a $5 dollar fee for a replacement cat identification tag.

To obtain or renew your licence, go to Côte Saint-Luc City Hall (5801 Cavendish Blvd.) between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm on weekdays.

Cat identification tag

The owner or keeper of an outdoor cat must show proof that the outdoor cat has been spayed or neutered and provide the information required to process the registration of a cat, including, but not limited to, the name and address of the owner, the breed, gender, colour, name of the outdoor cat and the microchip or tattoo number if the outdoor cat is so identified in order to be issued a cat identification tag.

Abandoned cats

No owner or keeper of a cat shall abandon a cat under any circumstances.
