And I really wouldn't want someone who is obviously wanting to be a good cat
mummy being driven away by someone not taking 2 minutes to cool off for
replying. The more aussies we can get on the side of responsible pet

catching and releasing feral populations, and wishing something like that
were done here. Although I'm not sure it would work as well; our native
animals would still be killed by the ferals. It's a hard question.
