I've noticed a heap of cat avatars on this board and I was wondering if any of you are veggie/vegan for environmental reasons how you reconcile having a cat as a pet especially when they enjoy munching on endangered and native species (particularly in Aust. & NZ)? I understand that cats would normally kill birds etc however keeping them as pets has introduced them to places that are naturally cat free. I know feral and pet dogs also cause damage but cats are generally free to roam where they please and if you leave them out you have no idea what they do or what they eat. When I was kid my parents had our cat (a stray) desexed because of the amount of animals he was killing (even as a kitten) but sadly it didn't help. And yes I hate cats *achew**sniffle*.
