The 41 partners in the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre are proud to promote the forthcoming products developed or registered throughout their seven year funding life (2005-2012). All products have been developed with animal welfare, price, useability, target...
Biology & ecology: Feral cats live, hunt and reproduce in the wild. They are the same species as domestic cats but differ in how and where they live rather than any true biological differences. Feral cats have the body shape, acute senses and fine coordination perfectly...
Feral cats were introduced by English settlers in the 18th century. There is however, strong evidence that they arrived here prior to this time as a result of shipwrecks, via trading routes with South East Asia, or as a result of earlier European contact.
The feral cat (Felis catus) is recognised as a significant threat to fauna conservation in Western Australia, particularly in arid and semi arid regions of the State. Not only do feral cats prey on native fauna and have the potential to spread diseases, but they have proven to...
Part of a series of information pamphlets published in 2004 by the Australian Department of the Environment and Heritage.
The diets of the fox, Vulpes vulpes, and feral cat, Felis catus, were studied at Yathong Nature Reserve in semi-arid western New South Wales. The overall occurrence of rabbit was 45.1% in stomachs of foxes and 540% in cats, representing 51.3 ahd 82.6% respectively of the weight...
As part of a programme to improve feral-cat control and eradication techniques, various odours were tested as candidate lures. They included food odours (fish oils), social odours (urine and its components, anal-sac secretions and commercial wild-animal lures) and plant...
This report provides an overview of the impact of feral cats Felis catus on native fauna of the Pacific region, with particular reference to Australia and its island territories.
Feral cat populations have had a devastating effect on many native wildlife species. As part of a program to evaluate improved predator control, feral cats were observed after they had ingested a polymer bait loaded with 0.4-1.6 mg sodium monofluoracetate (1080) per 1-g bait,...
Field trials were conducted in central Australia to evaluate the ability of various olfactory lures to attract feral cats (Felis catus L.). Ten food-based lures, one plant extract and two scent-based lures (anal-gland preparations from male and female cats) were evaluated on the...
We evaluated the efficacy of spotlight surveys and passive track surveys conducted along roads for assessing the relative abundance of feral cats and dingoes in a semi-arid rangeland environment in central Australia. Track surveys were more time-efficient than spotlight surveys...
