Outdoor cats and wild birds: a video discussion
Cat Fancy - a monthly national magazine focused on responsible pet care - advocates indoor-only cats. Susan Logan, the editor, invited me to join her in a video discussion about wild birds and outdoor cats. We talked about various aspects of the situation, including trap-neuter-release programs and the effectiveness of TNR.
You'll find the video here, and I'm curious about your reactions to it.
Also, how would you reply to someone who says "We love the birds but the cats have to eat also"? Do you talk about this topic with friends and relatives who allow their pet cats to roam outdoors?
