From the article:

In reply to:
Nevertheless, the new report is likely to fuel the sometimes vitriolic debate between environmentalists who see free-roaming domestic cats as an invasive species - superpredators whose numbers are growing globally even as the songbirds and many other animals the cats prey on are in decline - and animal welfare advocates who are appalled by the millions of unwanted cats (and dogs) euthanized in animal shelters each year.

Why would this fuel the debate? Seems to me that cutting down on breeding would reduce both problems.

I trapped a cat, paid for his neutering and found him a home by posting up pics and asking someone to adopt him on FB. It worked! His name is Shockley and he went from this:

Honestly, I would have let him live outside or found a shelter that is committer to no-kill. Since he is fixed, he is not going to increase the population. He could have been previously trapped by a spay / neuter / release program.

It's not too late to look up no-kill shelters or find an organization that might be able to help you relocate him to an existing feral cat colony. Like I said, since he is fixed, he won't be knocking any other kitties up. Set him free.

That cuddly kitty is deadlier than you think

Cats belong indoors.

keeping cats indoors will not prevent birds from dieing.
