New Research on Outdoor Cats

I'm a cat person. Never owned a dog, although I love all animals. I started out with cats and simply never switched or added in a dog. So, I love cats! But, I love wildlife too and new research is really grim on their affect on native wildlife.

The domestic cat is the most popular pet in the United States, with numbers ranging between 148 and 188 million individuals. Originally bred from wild cats in the Near East approximately 10,000 years ago, domestic cats are now considered a distinct species.

As a domesticated animal it has no native range so they are a non-native species in natural systems worldwide. In addition, native prey species often have no evolved defenses against this exotic predator, making the domestic cat a potential threat wherever it is introduced.

If you allow your cat(s) to roam outdoors, please consider this information. Don't be in denial that "YOUR" cat doesn't kill anything. Well-fed cats don't kill for food, they kill from instinct. Please read the article.
