'Cats are one of the top threats to US wildlife, killing billions of animals each year, a study suggests.

The authors estimate they are responsible for the deaths of between 1.4 and 3.7 billion birds and 6.9-20.7 billion mammals annually.'

22 shorts and 22cb caps usually solve the problem and fairly quietly. If your cat is loose it may not come home again. If you want to allow your cat free reign outside that's your choice, none of my 4 rescued cats are outside cats.

Actually, they're trying to do that in New Zealand:)

Cats work for their keep. When we were plagued by feral cats, the mice and squirrel population decreased substantially. Send cats to DC for the rat problem. It beats pesticides.

You have a point. Some believe the Black Plague caused so many deaths during the Middle Ages because cats were killed in large numbers because of their association with witches. That allowed rats to flourish.

That said, as a cat lover, I'm with fistv. Indoor cats live exponentially longer lives than those allowed to roam outside. Mine are so used to being indoors they don't even attempt to escape. Outdoors is too far from the food bowl:)

I think my 6 toed cat would vote for Obama. He's not good for much around the house and just expects someone to feed him and pay his vet bill. I still love him:)

I would suggest a few thousand pit vipers for DC capitol buildings but I think they would be outclassed by the snakes that got elected..:-)
