Or at least put a bell around its neck.

I'm glad to see this is now being taken seriously. Further reduction of the grey squirell population will help too.

Agree but baby steps, getting cat owners to keep them inside during spring with so many vulnerable young birds on the ground would be a huge leap forward.

Very good!

I hope RSPB encourages it.

Naturally, there will be always some insensitive owners who think that suffering of young birds is not important, but every cat owner who agrees will save young birds and mammals.

BTW, is it possible to make a cheap portable cat paddock from net on poles? I have an idea of a cross of this small fence to keep the sheep in, covered with the net used to protect grapes from starlings. Such a thing would be also useful for cat owners who go on holiday with their cats, in which circumstances cats very easily get lost.
