Let's not forget that those "mammals" include pests such as mice and rats which means the cat is helping mankind. As for the "birds", they have a built-in advantage in that they can fly - cats can't - so those that are caught were not the swiftest in the flock (survival of the fittest, anyone?). Even though I am totally against letting pets wander outside, those that are strays STILL have to eat and plenty of these same prey animals get eaten by other birds (hawks, eagles, etc.) so it is NOT all the fault of the kittehs. Mine are well fed and STRICTLY indoors only. We do our part, I wish others did theirs as well.

All I know is that we have three barn cats who stay in the barn. The cats that get dropped off out here by silly city folk thinking that the country is some sort of paradise for their house cat? Yeah, I try to shoot them and so does everyone else in the house. Why? Because otherwise we get treated to hearing them get slaughtered at night by the coyotes, owls, and the occasional wolf.
No, I am not trapping them and taking them to the pound. The closest pound for us is in Utah, about 200 miles away.
WTF kind of moron releases a soft house cat into the wild just utterly eludes me.
