Why Cats Should Be Culled
Every few months, the fact that domestic cats are ruthless killers hits the news. This past summer it was the Kitty Cam, memorably explained by webcomic The Oatmeal, which saw nearly one-third of cats kill 2 animals each week on average. In 2011 a study found that domestic cats were responsible for nearly half of predation on baby gray catbirds (Dumetella carolinensis), a shy bird common in the mid-Atlantic and named for its cat-like call. And this morning, Nature Communications published a large analysis estimating how many animals are killed by cats annually in the US: 1.4-3.7 billion birds and 6.9-20.7 billion mammals each year .

I like having no chipmunks, mice, voles or moles in or around my house and the coyotes keep the cat population down.

My cats are strictly worthless indoor lumps. If you shoot cats shitting in your kid's sandbox it's no skin off my nose. Maybe the critters in the woods will take your kid because there are no cats to eat. Just saying.
