Cats should be allowed to be cats

Re: Shirley Kowalch's letter, Observer, July 17, 2014.

Why should we keep our cats indoors as you said they are following their natural instincts to hunt birds and other small animals.

Cats are outdoor animals and them attacking and eating small animals is just the circle of life. Cats and other predators are nature's way of controlling population. So no there is no reason for people to keep their cats indoors.

Even if they do you'll still see animals wounded that way from strays and feral cats. Keeping your cats indoors will also keep your cats from keeping the local pest population in check.
