Kidding. People are squaring off as expected. I’m not going to tell people they’re wrong to give aid and comfort to feral cats instead of, say, food shelters, because the two are not mutually exclusive, and your definition of philanthropy is none of my business.
But this stat stuck out: Domestic cats kill a billion birds a year. And they get away with it.
If feral dogs killed a billion cats a year, there’d be outrage. If feral cats killed 100 billion honeybees annually, there would be some who said, “Well, that’s nature.”
Meanwhile, the crows peer at your car from the branches, memorizing your license plate so they can submit false insurance claims.
I’m not saying we’re looking at the wrong problem here, but if enough people respond to this column by asking the City Council to consider the problem of financially savvy identity-thief crow gangs, then we’ll know things are pretty good in the City of Lakes. Nothing else to fix!
