People in defence of cats should realise, that what you actually have with even roaming donmestic cats, are neighbourhoods with artificially high numbers of an apex predator which is not natures design.
I agree but there is a whole organized effort to this. There area number of groups dedicated to catch, spay and release. Part of the rationale is that if one group of cats is removed then more will move in from domestic cats straying or being deliberately released. I really don't know the answer to the feral cat problem although I think that mistakenly kind people who feed the cats are adding to the problem.
