    In today's New York Times: Killer Cats

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/30/sc...me&ref=general

    This is discouraging. Now more outcry to kill feral cats rather than TNR them. And the same idiots will keep letting their pet cats roam outdoors.

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.

    It is sad. True, but sad. The number of feral cats in some places is heart-wrenching, and it is all the fault of human stupidity.

    This was also brought up on the NBC Evening News tonight.

    TNR and people keeping their cats indoors are some answers to this.

    My concern is some nutbar 'fixing' this in their own way.

    Yup, Candace, that's what I'm afraid of too.

    A piece like this is not helpful. Among the billions of animals killed by cats are vermin. This should be a call to be more aggressive with TNR and encouraging owners to keep cats indoors. They are predators...what did they expect?
