The aim of this study was to use the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) as a conceptual framework to understand engagement in responsible cat ownership practices such as de-sexing, paying for the care of cats, and containment of cats. An online questionnaire was completed by 274 Singaporean cat owners to investigate the relationship between the constructs of the TPB (attitudes, subjective norms, perceived behavioral control, and intentions) and actual engagement in responsible cat ownership behaviors.
