I understand that cats are an invasive species on one level, but I am tired of dogs and cats being picked on as bad for the environment when no one is really talking about the biggest invasive species, humans. I disagree that cats should be forced to be inside because they kill birds. Cats want to go outside. How would you like to live inside your entire life? We humans kill so many more birds and other animals by destroying their habitat that to say we're going to keep cats indoors to save birds seems rather not to the point. Why punish the cats, when we really need to start talking about population growth?

Mr. Green you are dead wrong about "Most municipal sewage systems can handle pet waste." All sewage systems are overtaxed trying to perform the work they were designed to perform. Even brand new, state of the art systems are overtaxed when people like you use them to dispose of anything except sewage. You don't flush cat litter, medicines, or any other stuff down the toilet that should be disposed of properly somewhere else. This is not just a green issue, it is a basic common sense issue.

I dont think cats themselves are a much bigger environmental menace than kitty litter. They must not be kept inside like showcase materials, even though they may kill some birds and animals, they need to live in the environment. No animal will kill others purposefully unless they need to!!

oh gawd... I get so tired of hearing ignorant, overly sentimental cat-lover comments railing for their dear liddle killers to go massacre the defenseless creatures trying to survive the harsher outdoors. Cat-people please wake up!! Muffin isn't killing 'just a few' birds and mammals - but is part of the annual billions of birds killed for sport by these already well-fed hunters. As if they don't have enough to contend with millions of feral cats. Domestic cats kill for amusement - it gives them something to do, not because they 'need to'. Bird populations are diving - some as much as 90%. My cats have plenty amusement indoors with the imaginative bits & pieces I put out for them, incl boxes, things that rustle, etc. and they are content. Please don't be part of the problem by letting your cat murder (as well as toy with beforehand!) creatures that have a hard enough living outside. Be part of the solution. read up. get the facts. don't make assumptions. you CAN do it. and educate others.
