 At First, The Plan Was To Just Kill All The Cats
At First, The Plan Was To Just Kill All The Cats
The feral cats of San Nicholas Island, not native to the island, are doing what feral cats naturally do to survive - preying on shorebirds, seabirds and other endangered species, and the only way to save that wildlife is to get rid of the hunters. picked by suebe 2 years ago

 Ever Wondered Why Cats Are Said To Have Nine Lives?
Ever Wondered Why Cats Are Said To Have Nine Lives?
The proverbial curiosity doesn't usually kill cats. The inquisitive feline has a knack of dodging death by a whisker. Cats are intrepid explorers and fearless acrobats. After all, a creature with nine lives can afford to take risks. According to Brewer's Dictionary Of Phrase & Fable, a cat is said to have nine lives because it is "more tenacious of life than many animals." picked by AutumnLotus 3 years ago

 Removing cats to protect birds backfires on island
Removing cats to protect birds backfires on island
It seemed like a good idea at the time: Remove all the feral cats from a famous Australian island to save the native seabirds. But the decision to eradicate the felines from Macquarie island allowed the rabbit population to explode and, in turn, destroy much of its fragile vegetation that birds depend on for cover, researchers said Tuesday. picked by AutumnLotus 3 years ago

Although 28 of the cats found were alive, four were found dead. Three of these cats were in a freezer; one was in a crate in the room, Aust said.

“The litter boxes were so full, in fact, that they weren’t even using them anymore,” Aust said. “The bathtub was overflowing with empty cat food cans and trash.” picked by cecilberman 1 year ago
