    I doubt many cat owners bother even registering or microchipping their cats.

    Cat population in Australia needs to culled (exterminated) , if it's less than 99.9999% of cats it's not enough IMO.

    It's not the actual cats fault there owners are iresponsable. Instead of having to have a permit to keep native animals as pets , you should have to have one for non natives, with strict conditions attached.

    Ime all cut up about the cat .Like constrictor said there should be restrictions on non natives and none on natives .Ime overun with indian mynors and feral birds for example,i used to keep the numbers down by plugging them with an air rifle ,cant do that now because owning one is like getting into fort knox ,tons of regulations ,conditions and red tape which is really expensive .So the indian mynors just breed up now ,all ferals in NSW are actually classified as game species on NSW public lands ,so you need to go thru hoops to shoot them.

    My family and I drove the Strzelecki Track last year and spent the night at Cameron's Corner in the demountable accomodation. Walking back from the showers in the afternoon I seen a monster goanna at least 6 foot long. Was talking to the manager/owner and he said he is his feral cat controller. And loved kittens and the occasional adult.

    The cats are just doing what comes natural , its there survival instinct. Why not blame iresponsible cat owners as they are are the real problem not the animals. Believe it or not there are responsible cat owners out there too.

    Feral cats are a different story
