I think we have a communication/translation problem. A "feral Cat" in Austrlai is not the same beast as a"feral Cat" in urban societies where they have lived for hundreds of years
Predators like cats are new to Australia, live in the bush and prey on endangered wildlife.
We only have one "native' carnivorous predator the dingo on the mainland. quolls and Tasmanian tigers are now almost exclusivly in Tasmania due to predations of feral animals on the mainland.
carnivores just don't fit into the ecology, natives have no defenses against them and attempts to re-introduce natives to areas where they have been decimated is impossible because of feral animal carnage..

i think we have a communication problem here due to cultural and environmental differences.

i am surprised by this article as I know USA eutinatses 10,000,000 cats a year.
