Don't, for even one moment, fall for the song and dance about cat-lovers being animal-lovers, they are anything but that. They don't have ONE concern about any other animals nor even other humans. Cat-lovers are just like cats, the only thing they care about are themselves.
Their TNR (trap, neuter, release) programs are a dismal failure too. A smokescreen and time and money waster. Don't let anyone try to convince you otherwise. Do a search online for the truth about all TNR failures. Cats are an invasive species. Bred by man for manís purposes through selective-breeding, a form of genetic engineering. They are NOT an indigenous species anywhere on the planet today and have NO PLACE in nature. They have NO natural predators due to their bold patterns in their coats. ALL wildlife sees this as the universal symbol for toxic or olfactory defense mechanisms and won't go near them, even if starving. They have no more right to be out in the natural world than some genetically engineered insect that, if released out into nature, would destroy all wildlife. JUST AS CATS DO. A cat destroying wildlife is NO MORE NATURAL than if someone was raising piranha for pets and then dumping a tank of them into your bath with you in it, or in local swimming areas, or in your backyard pools. They deserve the same freedoms as cats, don't they? In fact, this would be even more natural, the piranha haven't been genetically engineered through selective breeding to make them unique from all other fishes.
These invasive-species cats that are released will still be decimating the food-chain for all native wildlife. If you feed a TNR cat-colony they kill even more wildlife. A well-fed cat kills more animals than a starving one. They don't stop killing other animals just because they're no longer hungry. The healthier they are the more they kill. It's what they do, it's what they are. Lousy little killing machines, nothing more.
It's not just the loss of bird populations either. Feral cats and farmers that let theirs roam free have decimated the natural food-chain in my woods. The resident foxes, owls, and other predator animals no longer had a food source. The feral cats maimed and mauled all the smaller animals for use as live play-toys, all dying a slow agonizing death, senselessly destroying all animals that other native wildlife depended on as a food source. The native species all starved to death. That's what cats do to ALL native animals.
There has also been research done to prove that cats are now spreading their potentially deadly Toxoplasma gondii parasite-disease to wildlife even in remote areas.
When disposing of cat carcasses now, be sure to bury them deeply enough or incinerate them so no other wildlife can become infected by them from eating the cat-meat. Wear gloves while doing so to protect yourself as well. Women who are pregnant can have their child born with severe neural birth defects (microcephaly or hydrocephaly) or miscarry or be still-born; or those with compromised immune systems (taking anti-rejection medication for transplants and skin-grafts at ANY time during your lifetime) can be deadly if you have contracted this disease. People with HIV may not be able to be kept alive by drugs if they contract this cats' disease.

I live where it is perfectly legal to defend your property and animals from destruction by others' animals. I lost count after dispatching the first 20 vermin with a good .22, outfitted with laser-sight and zoom rifle-scope. I didn't have to waste even one bullet, making this solution highly economical as well. 5000 rounds of .22's on sale for $15, that's 3 dead cats per penny! No further costs, ever. Think of how many dollars and hours of your lives that you have spent trapping, transporting, calling, complaining, restoring damaged property, and still all the problems that these useless cat-lovers have caused remains. If your aim is good this is far more humane than methods that "humane" societies use. Instead of dying a slow death by animal-shelter methods they don't even know they've been shot. It is now the preferred method for disposing of feral cats in many states.(In fact, shooting is too good for them. By all rights, to make things perfectly even, they should be made to starve a slow death, just like they caused to all the predator wildlife. Or maimed with entrails hanging out to die a slow death, just like they did to all the prey they destroyed and never ate. But I'm not as inhumane as cat-lovers and their cats are.)

It's time to give cats and cat-lovers the same consideration and respect that they have for all humans and all wildlife--that means NONE. Don't waste your time arguing with disrespectful, inconsiderate, and ignorant cat-lovers either, as I stupidly tried to do for years. Just do what needs to be done and there'll be nothing to argue about.

This year owls and foxes have returned to my woods. Through a large effort of my own, including raising and releasing native mice and voles to help repopulate some of the species that their useless cats destroyed. Their lousy cats are finally gone. But I'll shoot again on first-sight the first chance I get. The rewards for ridding one's land of ALL cats and restoring the native wildlife population are far too great.

If you don't have approval from your local law enforcement like I did to fix the myriad problems that all "cat-lovers" have created for all of humanity and the world, then you might be interested in a far more effective cat management program than TNR. It's called SSS -- for Shoot, Shovel, & Shut-up. It's now popular worldwide and "legal" everywhere. It may be the only thing that saves us from this ecological disaster that all the spineless and ecologically-ignorant law-makers have created. The drastic problems that cat-lovers have created by their blatant disrespect and lack of consideration for their environment, all other humans, and all animals now requires drastic actions by all those who actually care. It takes real strength of heart to do the right thing.

Here's a little insight to help you further understand the root-cause of the problem. Now you'll know EXACTLY why cat-lovers do what they do. It really has nothing at all to do with their concern for cats, nor even the lives of anyone nor anything else, quite the opposite.

Human Territorial Behavior By Expendable Proxy

I have come to the inexorable conclusion that the vast majority of cat-lovers and cat-owners that let their destructive invasive-species roam free, and especially those that defend the rights of feral cats to overtake public property and wildlife areas, are only (cowardly) using cats as a proxy for their own territorial behavior. Not unlike uneducated inner-city youth that will disrespectfully and inconsiderately use loud music to stake-out a territory for themselves. As long as they can have one of their possessions defecate in another's yard or destroy their property, animals, and wildlife, and the yard-owner not have any recourse; the cat-owner owns that territory. It's time to put a stop to them using their "cute kitty" excuse for usurping and stealing others' property. If they want territory they can buy it just like anyone else. Instead they're using underhanded, disrespectful, and manipulative means. By putting (and sacrificing) live animals in the path of their envy and greed. Again proving why they don't care about cats nor anyone else at all. Cat-lovers only really want your lawn, yard, or forest while making all others and all other animals suffer for what they can't have nor own. Bottom line--they want to control you and your property. That's ALL that "cat-lovers" are really after. It's why they don't care at all if their cat nor any other animals, nor even other humans, get harmed by their goals and (lack of) values in life.

150,000,000 feral breeding cats in the USA destroying wildlife everywhere, destroying the whole native food-chain wherever they are found, and spreading deadly diseases to all animals and humans. 60,000,000 non-feral cats in the USA of which most are not sterilized. Human population of the USA (from infant to senior) is 311,000,000.

210,000,000 wildlife destroying cats in the USA for 311,000,000 humans. 2 cats for every 3 humans from infant to senior. They cannot be trapped and fixed at the rate they are breeding. It is a totally losing battle. A 210,000,000-cat losing battle. This is the result of trapping policies since they outlawed shooting cats in many areas.

As a responsible civic-duty to your fellow human and your children's future, and all wildlife on earth, each and every household of 3 people would have to permanently destroy AT LEAST 2 cats just to begin to start to catch up to their breeding rates to bring this human-health, ecological, and financial disaster under control. The cat-population has been oversaturated for a long time now. Nobody wants the excess that are breeding faster than they can trap them, only 60,000,000 cats are wanted in the USA. They're too spineless, weak, and uncaring of anything else but their cats to destroy the excess.

So now they just dump them into your neighborhoods and countryside to pawn them off as someone else's problem to allow them to destroy all life on earth by destroying the native food-chain. And mind you, this is with believing they hold absolutely no responsibility at all to any deaths by rabies or other cat diseases, miscarriages from Toxoplasmosis, damages to businesses, nor any other suffering and damages to the community where they dumped them. When they get sued for their actions and FORCED to finally take responsibility they'll just conveniently disappear. You can count on it. NOT ONE feral cat advocate has EVER assumed any responsibility, financial or otherwise, for any damages or deaths caused by their cats.

Nice values and goals you've got there! Keep trying to justify them.

Thanks! You amazingly ignorant and stupid cat-lovers that brought us to where we are now. If we left it up to you, with your disease-spreading food-chain destroying cats, there will eventually be no other life-form left on earth, just your cats cannibalizing each other. You're so smart and loving, aren't you.

You should all be thrown in prisons for life. But wait, let's first get to torture you with disembowelment and diseases like your cats do to all other life-forms. We only want to deal with you completely fairly and evenly you know. Giving back to you exactly what you've brought to this planet with your cats. We want to be just as logical and compassionate as you are.

You take it wrong. But then cat-lovers are always ignorant idiots.

I have absolutely no feelings about cats. They are only an invasive species that must be destroyed everywhere they are found outside. No different than destroying Zebra-Mussels, Eurasian Water-Milfoil, or the Emerald Ash Borer. They mean nothing more than that to me. They are even more destructive to the environment than if people raised piranha for pets and then let them go free in every body of fresh-water in the whole world. But people like you are far too stupid to comprehend this.

What I DESPISE are people who are so fuckingly ignorant, stupid, uncaring, inconsiderate, inflict disemboweling-cruelty on all other animals but their cats, and are so amazingly disrespectful to all humans and all other life on earth that they would allow their destructive diseases-infested invasive-species cats to roam free for even one moment of its highly destructive life.

People like that deserve nothing less than prison-for-life for doing so. Perhaps when law-makers realize that what cat-owners are doing is exactly the same as biological warfare (look up the definition, spreading cats and their diseases perfectly qualifies for that definition), then all people who allow cats to roam free will be hanged-until-dead for the crimes they've committed against all of humanity and all of nature. As they should be. Putting a cat in the hands of a criminally irrepsonsible cat-lover is no less disastrous than putting a case of anthrax in the hands of a terrorist. We now have 150 MILLION (or more) diseased feral-cats destroying all wildlife wherever they are found and spreading deadly diseases to humans and wildlife as absolute proof of this.

Here's another Fun-Fact that trap-advocates fail to realize, in their infinite ignorance of how animal-behavior and evolution works.

Those cats that have learned to avoid and evade all trapping methods are the next generation to survive. Ever hear the old adage, "If you invent a better mousetrap nature will just invent a better mouse."?

So now, thanks to the supreme stupidity and ignorance of trap-advocates, we have a race of freely roaming cats in all countrysides of every continent which are passing on their "how to survive" behavior to all their offspring, both genetically and behaviorally. Now the next phase of millions of feral-cats won't even be able to be trapped. This is just how amazingly stupid trap-advocates are. You thought 150,000,000 feral cats was bad? In colloquial terms, "You ain't seen nuthin' yet!"

There's a reason the phrase "hunted to extinction" is so well-known in all cultures across all lands. It is the ONLY method that is faster than a species can breed and adapt to.

Stick that in your TNR-pipe of deceptive and deceitful ignorance and smoke it. You might as well, because you all have obviously been smoking something.

By the way, look up the term these TNR advocates just LOVE to use on how they reduce their feral-cat numbers, their candy-coating feel-good term of "Death by Attrition". This means that the cat will die from disease, cat-attacks, animal-attacks, exposure to the elements, being road-kill, starvation, and any other means that drastically shortens the life of those cats. ALL their cats suffering for how many months or years it takes to die that way. In many parts of this country and the world this clearly falls under the guidelines for cruelty to animals, animal-abuse, and animal-abandonment laws.

If you want to raise revenue for your towns and cities in order to deal with this invasive-species ecological-disaster properly, start charging all these TNR advocates with severe fines and imprisonment for CRUELTY TO ANIMALS. Not only are they cruelly torturing cats, but also all the wildlife that they inflict their cats upon.

They're not doing this out of any goodness of their hearts. THEY DON'T HAVE HEARTS. Proved, 100%.
