I'm definitely in the anti-cat brigade.


.22 air rifles work well.











I think that bringing children into the debate doesn't work very well. If it was intended to produce sympathy for cats then it seems to me that your confidence is misplaced. Graphic imagery of children being harmed is not needed and just appears as "more heartless, cold and cruel."



Bricks through windows, nasty letters, ring-barking your tree, shooting cats, sleeping with your wife, coining car doors, damaging your property. It all just works towards an end goal of a crappy neighbourhood, it's both cumulative and very destructive. If you like doing awful things to your neighbours in your own backyard there will be consequences. For everyone.





How/why did "sleeping with your wife" get slipped in to that list?  Sounds biblical - harking back to the days when wives were "property".

Getting O/T here!

As someone involved in the never-ending battle of feral animal control (including cats) I think this is a timely thread.
New Zealand's National Cat Management Strategy Group's just in the process of releasing its official strategy document.
The draft document's available here.

The group's basically the SPCA, NZ Veterinary Association, Companion Animal Veterinarians, NZ Companion Animal Council, Morgan Foundation and Local Government.
MPI's officially observing, and DoC advising the Group.

As with any committee discussion, there are some 'pie-in-the-sky' many 'common sense' statements - and a few very good ideas.

But at least, when the strategy's presented to Government later this year, a foundation document will have been established for the creation of policy on Feral, Stray and Domestic cats in this country.

The stated goal's a coherent, legislated Cat Management Strategy for New Zealand by 2025.
