Re: sites to avoid I think cat laws could be very simple: register them like dogs, night time curfew, and pet cats must be neutered - only registered breeders being allowed to have unneutered ones. We trained our cat to come to a whistle, so if he isn't in when it is getting dark, we whistle him in. Feral cats need to be euthanised - they have a miserable disease-ridden life anyway. In our council area you can hire a cat trap free, which is a large baited cage. We were plagued by a feral, but the next door neighbour caught it in such a trap and took it to the council pound. I know many people hate cats, but we find a cat keeps the house rodent-free, and ours is a good companion. A couple of bells round his neck act as a warning system to keep the local birds safe.
