My cat is a threat to the eco system.

You will not believe this.
An economist says that cats are a threat to the ecosystem.
Now they’re worried about the predatory instinct of my cat. She brings annually seems
at least 20  preys, this means 40 million animals per year for our small country Belgium. Now that economist asks  to keep the cats inside at night.
But I think just the weak animals deal with cats as that happens in nature.
Mice and birds that are too weak or sick to fly away.Now I am a person  that don’t like animals kill each other.
But sometimes we must be realistic.
Now we force nature.
My cat is always  inside the house  during the night . But that does not stop her to show us once and a while a dead mouse.
Let me introduce to u  My cat CHICA with mouse.

  1. MJ, My Cats were always catching mice and the occasional bird Like you I do not like to see any animal killed.. But I think thats half the problem with the world.. Is that MAN has interfered TOO much with Nature…

    He thinks not twice at cutting down its habitat to build new homes, so that the wild life retreat further into our gardens to find shrubs to roost in and Field mice too.. as many fields now are either New estates or Industrial sites around us..

    My cats too always would bring home their prize to show me their catch.. with great pride…

    I can name more things than a Cat, as I bet you can MJ that is a greater threat to our Eco system…

    loved that Photo…. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    i agree Sue Thats why i needed to write abt it.
    Forests are disappearing with all the wild in it.
    We see ppl kill animals cos of the price of their fur or like with the rhino the price of the horn for sexual needs. My god.

    Oh my, little they may be however the instinct of the big cats is still in them.

    Cats are predators in general. But now since we have domesticated them and feeding them on platter without them having to actually work for it is against the nature too. Cat hunting for prey is a good thing. Let the nature take care of itself.

    One cannot override instinct.

    These cats control the pest population because if they didn’t we’d have the mouse plague that they have in Australia! 😦

    Love and hugs!


  6. Great photo! And what a big mouse!! My landlord’s cat proudly brought 2 dead mice home she’d caught, shouted very loudly for attention and guarded them zealously…she took the first one indoors and no one listened to my warning…lol…the sudden scream from the kitchen proved this point!! Mouse was then carried out by tail and flung over garage roof into neighbour’s garden! Cat was not well pleased 😉 So she brought the 2nd mouse in….she was even more displeased when that one followed the 1st one over the roof top!!! Some people are never happy when their cat brings them a loving gift or two!!! 😉

      haha so cute Wolfy I love this
      well a cat is doing her best to please and show her servants( we call ourselves her boss ) her catch.
      and then ohhhh they dont like..
      but once Chica brought one in veranda the door was open. But the mouse was alive so the poor thing ran for her life. i was thinking that lil thing must have been afraid like hell. But as we say. thats nature.
      Be well Wolfy.
