|THis is a horrible incident to hear about! I'm in no way am I saying this madman is right. But, people should keep their cats indoors. HEELLLLLOOO PEOPLE THEY'RE DOMESTIC CATS- NOT TIGERS, THEY DON'T NEED THE OUTSIDE, THEY MAY WANT IT, BUT DON'T NEED IT!
IT is CRUEL TO LET CATS GO OUTSIDE! When will that message ever get absorbed? It's not medieval times- cats can kill mice but shouldn't be used for that. They're Companions to us. Whether you live in the country or the city it's dangerous either way. In the city-buses, trains, cars, commotion. In the country-bears, ticks, wildlife. If you really care about your cats- and consider them pets/companions you will not let them roam outside or kill mice. I don't even let my house cats kill bugs that come into my home. Even if you have a yard, your cat can jump and climb and shouldn't be left out there without your supervision. They can run away or drown in your pool. Even on the front porch- they shouldn't be left out there without your supervision. And, definitely should not be left to roam on balconies-they can get into serious accidents from falling.
The main issue is, that they can get things from the outside and those of you who do let your cats roam outside are not very responsible because they can come back sick & hurt and get all kinds of diseases & parasites. That man is a sicko and he should be burned! However, Responsible pet owners don't have to deal with problems like this.
