i love cats, I have two, so yes when they pass on I will get some more cats, I get my cats from a refuge, spca. I'm not a bird person but I don't harm any other animal. Eradicating any animal is ridiculous, if they can't be helped then humanly put them down, there are other ways around saving the birds without having to harm cats, how ridiculous is he to just suggest, KILL THEM. Goodness, next minute you don't like certain people doing certain things, would you do a campaign to put them down too....This is where it starts, it will just get worst and worst if this man keeps going on.

This discussion is ridiculous. No animal deserves to live anymore than the next. End of story. It is not a battle of cat lovers vs bird lovers, they are both deserving of a life, it is up to us as humans to manage it HUMANELY and CRUELTY FREE. Wise up.

No cats, more mice and rats, I breed birds and mice get into the aviary at night through the netting and take the eggs, especially when babies are inside the eggs, also magpies take baby birds and eggs out of nests. Also mice and rats climb trees and steal the young and eggs.
Possumn are just as bad, also seen a hawk kill a chook and other birds.
Do you lot want an invasion of rats and mice. When we lived on the boundary of the forest park our cats never brought home a birds, but sure brought home lots of rabbits, we had native pidgeons that were getting that fat on our plums they could hardly fly, in fact often just sat on the ground, never touched by our cat. Plant lots of native trees that birds love that's what brings the birds around, but get rid of the rats and mice stouts and ferrats etc, and the ozzie invaiders.

i think that as usual sensible and logical reasoning have gone out the door to grandstanding, a desire for publicity and downright stupidity. Of course cat or pet lovers for that mtter want to proect our native wildlife its just the morons that shouldnt have pets that dont get them nuetered,let them go wild and dump them thhat cause the problems. Encouraging people to act responsibily instead of the usual nanny state would bring better long-term results

Gareth Morgan is pushing it uphill. People will not give up their cherished pets. He should be advocating all cats wearing bells so they can't hunt birds.

Karori is, I believe, one of the larget suburbs in New Zealand - therefore it stands to reason that there will be more cats. Why create a bird sanctuary in such a highly populated area and then try to change to change the lives of the locals? Not well planned methinks.
