Cat ownership

The City of Airdrie's Animal Control Bylaw outlines the responsibilities of cat ownership.  Please refer to the actual bylaw for more detailed information.

Cat owners must ensure their cats:

  • have and wear a cat licence when outside the home starting from when they are three months old
  • only three cats per household
  • do not run at large
