Operation Feline Fix


Desexing animals reduces the number of unplanned pregnancies and subsequent abandoned kittens entering the cat population. 


Microchipping allows for a simple return of missing felines to their owners, reducing the time owned cats are out roaming in the environment.


Keeping cats contained lessens feline impact on native wildlife and the environment while minimising risk of injury and disease of cats.


Working out of a purposely built and fully equipped desexing hospital, Operation Feline Fix is a professional and affordable way to help prevent your cat from contributing to the wildlife injuries and deaths in Tasmania. We achieve this using a SNIP CHIP CONTAIN approach.

Cats and kittens are well respected by all of the our team as we understand that their ability to hunt is an instinct and is certainly not their fault.


A fully equipped quality, high volume veterinary desexing hospital provides for spaying and castration of cats. Services allow for juvenile and seniors desexing and we can provide the option for fluid therapy and blood testing for an additional fee.  Our cats are spoilt during their stay. We use low stress cat handling techniques, high quality anaesthetics, cat relaxation music on recovery, and of course high-quality pain relief.


All cats having their SNIP at Thylacine lutruwita are also microchipped and registered on a national register. A microchip allows lost cats to be identified as owned and returned to their homes as soon as possible.


The latest research shows that an owned domestic cat who is allowed to roam freely outdoors hunts and kills on average 186 native animals per year.  We understand that your cat may not appear capable of this, however feline hunting instincts are very strong, and cats are the masters of human manipulation. To reduce the impact that urban cats have on native species, all Operation Feline Fix patients are sent home with containment education packages.  This includes practical advice on containment solutions for your feline friend.
