better at night knowning her cat
Molly is safe in her cage.
The money Janice Seymour spent on a
cat run for her three-year-old feline
Molly is money she has saved in vet
bills ever since.
Ms Seymour, a McKellar resident,
had no legal obligation to contain her
cat when she decided to install a cat
It was simply a matter of wanting to
look after both her pet and the wildlife
in her area.
"When I first bought Molly I didn't
want her roaming around, getting into
cat fights and killing the birds, because
I like the wildlife,"she said.
"I used to have a cat that would
roam, and I don't see the vet near as
It's much easier, I have a lot more
peace of mind knowing she can come
and go as she pleases, and she's not
locked inside during working hours
when I'm not here. I love it."
The Conservation Council ACT is
distributing postcards to about 70,000
homes to ensure cats are contained and
to encourage responsible pet
ownership. Forty-two suburbs have
been ranked high priority because of
the species native to the areas, the
threatened grassland earless dragon,
the pink-tailed worm-lizard, and the
Conservation Council ACT
assistant director Briony Papps said
cats had a "particularly significant
impact on biodiversity in Canberra".
"We really want cat owners to
understand that they have a
responsibility to keep their cat from
roaming and hunting our native
wildlife," she said.
"It's also about protecting the cat
and keeping the cat healthy.
Contained cats live longer and
they are less at risk of car strike,
fighting and injuries -- it's just the
responsible thing to do."
Residents of newer suburbs,
Bonner, Crace, Coombs, Denman
Prospect, Forde, Lawson, Molonglo,
Mulligan's Flat, Wright,
Goorooyarroo Nature Reserve and
parts of Watson, have been reminded
cats must be contained 24 hours a day.
Territory and Municipal Services
Minister Shane Rattenbury said
residents' knowledge of the policy
had dropped off over time.
"With people selling their house and
others moving in, or where tenants
have changed over, there has been a
drop off in awareness about cat
containment policies," Mr Rattenbury

Lights go out
The public artwork LaserWrap will
be decommissioned at the end of
The laser light display, by artists
Geoffrey Drake-Brockman and
Richie Kuhaupt, has been projected
onto the ACT Health Building on the
corner of Moore and Alinga Streets
for the past decade.
The artwork consisted of 20 lasers
housed in three motorised projector
boxes on the rooftops of the GPO,
Canberra House and Melbourne
Arts Minister Joy Burch said the
visual arts project would cease on
"Sadly, the projector box on the
GPO is no longer working and
Canberra House is about to be
demolished to make way for a new
development,'' she said.
"Given these factors, it was timely
to review LaserWrap's future as part
of the ACT Government's Public Art
Collection and we have decided to
