Birds can freaking fly! If they can't get away from a pet cat (a domesticated cat), then they deserve to die.

I love it when extremists get called out on their ridiculous "ideas" they turn it around and suddenly claim it was really about "starting a conversation" when it's blatantly obvious what their real intent is, which in this case is getting rid of fluffy

They'll get my kitty when they pry it out of my cold dead hands. :woot:

Where I live, birds far outnumber cats.

I rarely see a dead bird at all.

There are a few species of flightless birds in NZ, and they got that way because there was no predators there till humans brought them
Maybe someone should bring and release lions and tigers all around the US, adding a new predator to the eco-system, or is it because
it's a small predator and doesn't affect humans that it's ok with you.

PS: Cats a little murder machines, awesome little murder machines mind you, if I could have a lion as a pet I totally would.

^ Few domestic cats will kill -- as long as they are fed and well cared for.

That's not true, they kill for fun, they're little serial killers, the only way they wont is if they're locked inside all day and night, never seeing the outside world
But the second you put them outside, they'll go on little murderous rampages, true story.

^ Must be something wrong with my cats -- they get excited and chase after a bird, but they never kill any.

You must live in an alternate reality.

They've lulled you into a false sense of security, they're up to something, keep an eye on those sneaky little devils.

Feral cats do wreck havoc on native species and domesticated cats which are allowed to roam freely usually do end up attacking local wildlife.

Comes down to lazy, ****-for-brains owners. It's generally the same with dog attacks: people don't secure rover properly, he gets out and bites someone.

LOL! Good one.

Back to the subject, no I don't think any country should have the right to ban any animal. My mom's cat Checkers catches mice in her house and kills them. Without a cat, the rodent population will increase and have the potential to damage the house's interiors.
