I agree entirely! The sustainable population of humans on this planet is estimated at 2 billion. Since we are 3 1/2 times that, in time most of us will be killed. We are in the midst of the biggest die-off of species in 67 billion years. Which do you want to save? You choose cats, I choose birds. Maybe it's not either/or. What I know, contrary to some other posts here, is that my neighbor's cats kill several birds each year and leave their bodies in my yard. I like cats, I just don't like them exterminating birds.

According to the Audubon Society, domestic cats are responsible for one third of all wild bird deaths, bringing some such as bluebirds close to endangered. You are not doing Mother Nature any favor by helping feral cats. They are not a native species. If we wish to protect the birds, the cats should be killed.
