A pleasant change to reading about efforts to remove so called feral cats in Australia which are actually our native wild cats and have every right to live ..

We must protect all the animals on this earth. Whatever happens to the beast will also happen to man because all are connected

It's not before time that action was taken to protect these wild cats.Unfortunately gamekeepers routinely trap and shoot them in order to protect the grouse and pheasants which they breed for shooting,There is also the problem of these wild cats breeding with domestic feral cats further polluting the population. The problem of domestic cats is largely due to holiday makers taking their cats with them and allowing them to wander unfettered.they are a much bigger menace to the wildlife than the native wildcat.

Love this cat. This is the cat in "Touch not the cat but a glove" where "but" (or "bote") means "without." Not just a part of nature but a part of history. It would be terrible to lose them.
