Cat carnage

ONCE again we read (The Sunday Times April 17) of the destruction of our unique and wonderful wildlife. Not just by feral cats but also domesticated cats that are allowed to roam free both day and night.

We have personally buried numerous wild birds including a young duck that had been so badly savaged by a cat, which I had shooed off on our driveway, that we had to put this poor creature down humanely.

Our property has become a graveyard, a sad and tragic reminder of the damage that cats can cause.

We implore cat owners to keep their animals contained by keeping them in cat runs or inside or, better still, not have them.
