Forget Villanelle; the UK has 7.5 million assassins at large

Posted in: Comment, News and Updates

According to the Pet Food Manufactures Association [PFMA] there are 7.5 million domestic cats in the UK, the vast majority of which have a negative effect on wildlife and biodiversity.  How could we move to an effective policy to gradually reduce that number?  Does anyone know?  Doing so seems a no-brainer to me.  It baffles me that so many green-minded types are cat lovers as well.  Some cognitive dissonance there I think.
It’s not as if there are no adequate alternatives. The PFMA also says that currently there are some 800,000 rabbits, 400,000 hamsters and 700,000 guinea pigs enjoying life in families.  There must be room for a few million more.
