This article although published in 1991 is still relevant today. We raise the issue again because in our home village of Loxton, domestic and feral cats have reached pest proportions. Most are free-ranging and have no owner (does any cat?), a few have homes. Our feelings remain the same, in that domestic cats should be fitted with collars and bells to warn small potential prey animals (it really works) and feral cats should be trapped and euthanised.
