They live, We sleep
Despite the large numbers of birds killed by cats in gardens, there is no clear scientific evidence that such mortality is causing bird populations to decline. This may be surprising, but many millions of birds die naturally every year, mainly through starvation, disease or other forms of predation. There is evidence that cats tend to take weak or sickly birds.
We also know that of the millions of baby birds hatched each year, most will die before they reach breeding age. This is also quite natural, and each pair needs only to rear two young that survive to breeding age to replace themselves and maintain the population.
It is likely that most of the birds killed by cats would have died anyway from other causes before the next breeding season, so cats are unlikely to have a major impact on populations. If their predation was additional to these other causes of mortality, this might have a serious impact on bird populations.
Those bird species which have undergone the most serious population declines in the UK (such as skylarks, tree sparrows and corn buntings) rarely encounter cats, so cats cannot be causing their declines. Research shows that these declines are usually caused by habitat change or loss, particularly on farmland.

As u can see freedomito this is fake news created by ((them)) the truth is above
It seems that white people are crazy for cats. And a very high percentage of those white people are also cigarette smokers. You just can't make this stuff up there's a different correlation there and it is nauseating
Wait I forgot to mention. Somebody's going to accuse me of being a bully now. But I am just stating the truth. Millions and millions of single white women sleep with their cats under the covers and live lonely lives with no companions except for their cats. Millions of millions of men are doing the same thing as well.
****FUCKING MENTALLY ILL BONKERS***
My cat has never killed a bird or a mouse or anything of the sort. She is asleep right now dreaming of such things but that is very different. A cat is as good as its owner and I am meticulous in that regard.
I disagree with people who allow their pet cats to roam the streets and refuse to control breeding. That's where humans become irresponsible owners for me.
That's good. For me it is the uncontrolled breeding that is the problem. Cats are similar to low IQ humans in that they can be very friendly, but just want to have millions of babies and will as Freedom points out use violence on a whim. They have no consideration of their future environmental impact. That is where us super eugenics types must rip out wombs and protect the planet. It's all for their own good of course.
The average mature cat can have 3 litters with a total of 12 kittens per year; 10.2 surviving kittens of which 4.7 are female
The average litter size is 4 kittens with 15% loss before reaching weaning age (3.4 kittens per litter)
Gender ratio per litter averages of males to females is roughly 46.5% female (of 3.4 kittens = 1.8 males and 1.6 females)
35% spay ratio allowance for offspring (unscientific factor balancing owned and stray cats)
20% annual mortality ratio
Not factored into this equation:
An immature cat's first litter usually consists of 2 kittens versus 4.
Unspayed female cats can begin reproducing at 6 months of age and can produce a litter during the same year of birth.

Freedom is evil calling for feline genocide but the numbers are staggering
Anything that can fly and still gets killled doesn’t have my sympathy. Do birds even do anything anyways? Only hummingbirds pollinate as far as I know. I’m off to buy feral cats and start breeding them.
"You're a big man, but you're in bad shape. With me it's a full time job. Now behave yourself..."
The next year there were more flies and mosquitoes bothering people and lifestock.
After a few years without the birds that keep the flying insect populations under control, there were an enormous amount of flies in the area during the summer. We couldn't go outside without being bitten.

Roadrunners were greatly appreciated by the Indigenous people of Mexico and the Southwestern US, because they kept the number of Rattlesnakes (which are toxic enough to kill a child) down to normal levels.
