  •   tokeandtonic But then again we have a ridiculous number of these creatures so I guess it's like, balanced. :P I don't mind them catching things like roaches or mice, but I hate it when they catch reptiles, squirrels, or birds. ( those are THE worst times, that calls for an all out rescue mission.) 2w
  •   thejackrob Mmm they're very very bad news here, feral cats have settled in our natural bushlands and kill millions of native wildlife every week @tokeandtonic 2w
  •   tokeandtonic I dunno what kinda cats y'all got out there, but ours do NOT cause any sort of damage like that. we only get domestic ones here, even the wild ones (in India we have a lot of stray cats and dogs, a lot of em are actually really friendly) we have are actually just domestic bred stray cats, so they either scavenge or hunt for their food, which would consist of our basic city/outdoor small time creatures, lizards, mice, insects, and larger cats go for birds or if their lucky enough a mongoose(super duper rare scenario). So the creatures our domestic house cats pick up are just the regular pests and the occasional outdoor creature. 2w
  •   tokeandtonic Our wild cats, what I assume are similar to your feral cats, live in the jungles, or the foresty areas. Most common breed's the fishing cat, as it's name suggests it's an aquatic hunter. Our wild cats are very large compared to our domestic ones though. :) but even they don't cause any sort of intense damage to the ecosystem, it's all part of the cycle here. O.o you say they "settled", are the feral cats unnatural to the bushlands there? 2w
  •   thejackrob You'd be surprised man...honestly they're the perfect killer. 2w
  •   thejackrob Yes they are unnatural. They would of been domestic cats that had escaped, bred, become more primitive @tokeandtonic 2w
  •   tokeandtonic Yeah, even our domestics our ninjas. hmm, that's not good then, do they stray into houses and such? 2w
  •   thejackrob Oh these areas are like out bush. So In the outback so not a huge population of people 2w
