Simple, if you can't leash a cat, keep them in your house! If it's against the law for dogs to roam unleashed than it doesn't give a cat owner the right to let their cats roam. Cats by their very nature are prowling predators.

So you're blaming the cat for your dog running into the road?


As to cats deifications, they cover their crap up. It doesn't need to be cleaned. Unlike the stupider species that we choose to keep.

Your really calling a cat smarter then a dog because it covers its poo?

Not all cats do that anyway

It shouldn't be illegal. Immoral, yes. Illegal, no.
The moral part comes from protecting your property and your nations native animals

but cats dont attack people and crap in playparks (yes i know your dog would never do this). where as i cant see any problems with cats roaming free.
silly thread.

The point is that they attack native wildlife, which happens to be just as important as any person if you understand ecology.
Why is a cat the only pet in the entire world where owners do not want to keep it safe and stop it from harming other animals?
Your clearly ignorant if you can’t see problems with cats roaming free

I guess it boils down to the personality of people being owned by cats .... You can't expect the people that are being owned by a god (the cat), to think rationally, can you ?


Cats are very selective, they would never choose a person to "own" them, that are critical of cats....

Keeping a cat confined indoors all the time is animal abuse. It goes against a cats nature and can lead to depression in cats.My cat spends most of her time indoors but spends part of the day outside. Cats need to be outdoors regularly. If I ever tried to keep her indoors she would squirm beneath my legs any time the door was open.. I would be trapped indoors. Cats don't hurt anyone when they are out doors, in fact they will run, where as a dog is likely to attack, get into garbage ect.

So keeping any animal confined to a home is animal abuse? So if you own a pet ferret, a guinea pig, a snake, a lizard, a bird or even a dog your abusing them? Shouldn't these animals also be allowed outside regularly? So why are these animals any different than a cat?

Not all dogs are aggressive and don't ignore the fact that some cats can also be mean and aggressive. Dogs are the only animal that get into garbage? I've had my garbage strewn on my lawn by cats scratching though the bag to get after left over food.

Lets get this straight, I'm not for killing cats let alone any living thing. But people do not have the right to let their pets climb on awnings, pull down bird houses, causing their own pets to get aggravated, getting into their trash, scratching wooden fence posts or causing disturbances. People's personal property like their home and yards shouldn't have free reign by any pet, dogs included.

Take control of your own cat and don't let your pet use my yard as a place to cause damage or disturb my pet or my privacy. Stop giving excuses on why cats need to roam on personal property. It's wrong and it's a lack of consideration on the owners part.

I don't know where you live dude but where I do that damage comes from:

Bird houses = squirrels

Lawn trash = coons.

Lawn doodoo = dogs.

If it isn't you cat chances are 9.9 times out of 10 that it wants nothing to do with you.

All this arguing over cats and dogs using Australia as an excuse. Well guess what Australia, cats are not native here in the US either and populations are fine. So you have a special kangaroo mouse. It's still just a mouse with pouch. A rat is a rat but I smell a happy little troll dominating his bridge known as the OP...moving on.

Well it’s important to note that they do this all over the world.
But in Australia they have wiped some koala populations to near extinction, wombats, small wallabies, countless bird species, reptiles including snakes and lizards, some species of possums, native rodents.. I’m sure the list goes on.

They are also defenceless,
cats are well known to attack womats and koalas

ETA:
Haha I just realised what you said, Wombats are not 4 feet long and Koalas are not 3 feet

Last time I reply unless as the UFO guys say links and pictures or it didn't happen. Stop making stuff up Wombats and Koalas are mean...and keep their young in guess what a pouch...I have heard about the kangroo mouse being threatened years ago but its a mouse with no real value in the eco system, other than its a mouse with a pouch whoopty doo!

You are REALLY going to need a link to back that up. I've had cats my whole life and I never saw one that would attack an animal that big. They just scoot away. Cats are selective. Did you know that 2 cats won't fight unless they both decide to?
