I don’t dislike cats. I dislike what cats do.
You cat owners who turn your cats out at night show your true colours as a pet owner. You are asking your neighbours to look after your pet without realizing it.
When your cat comes onto my property, I could have a trap out to catch it and turn it over to the SPCA. You are gambling on the probability that I would not do that and you are correct — at least not for now.
However, having said that, I still have the option to do so.
Certain black and white, striped, multi-coloured, grey and orange cats that roam our neighbourhoods at night, terrorizing the birds as they rest, making smelly deposits in flowerbeds and causing motion lights to come on are running the risk of having to spend a night or two in a kennel at the SPCA.
I don’t know what the cost of retrieving your cat would be but it would probably purchase a sizeable amount of real cat food and save the lives of a large number of birds.
Come on folks, have some respect for your neighbours and look after your own cat.
