Pet owners in Lower Hutt are now required to ensure their cats are desexed and microchipped.

It's also compulsory for cats older than twelve weeks to be on the Companion Animal Register.

Councillor Andy Mitchell says the changes will help reduce feral cat populations.

Mitchell spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.
