Cats kill an estimated 480 million birds per year (assuming eight birds killed per feral cat per year.)” That is a grossly conservative number, and only accounts for feral cats, not outdoor pets. And that’s just birds. Plus the other wildlife that are killed by cats annually. Here’s another resource, a smaller scale research program called Kitty Cams: “Hunting cats captured an average of 2 items during seven days of roaming. Carolina anoles (small lizards) were the most common prey species followed by Woodland Voles (small mammals). Only one of the vertebrates captured was a non-native species (a House Mouse).” From the same group: “44% of cats were witnessed stalking or chasing prey; 30% captured wildlife.” An article from Mental Floss, sources listed at the bottom of the article:  “84 million House cats in the United States 4 to 18 Birds killed by a typical house cat every year 8 to 21 Small mammals killed by a typical house cat every year 30 million to 80 million Free-roaming, feral cats estimated to be living in the United States. They either survive alone or live in colonies. In Washington, D.C., for example, there are estimated to be some 300 outdoor cat colonies. 23 to 46 Birds killed by each feral cat every year 129 to 338 Small mammals killed by each feral cat every year 1.4 billion to 3.7 billion Total birds killed by America’s cats every year 15 Percentage of all bird deaths estimated to come at the hands — er, paws — of cats 6.9 billion to 20.7 billion Total small mammals killed by cats every year” From a report on ABC News: “Cats are responsible for the deaths of 1.4 to 3.7 billion birds and 6.9 to 20.7 billion mammals every year, according to research conducted by the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.” From the American Bird Conservancy: “If we extrapolate the results of this study across the country and include feral cats, we find that cats are likely killing more than 4 billion animals per year, including at least 500 million birds.” (Also you’re putting your cat in unnecessary danger from tons of different threats by letting them outside unsupervised. So even if you don’t wanna give a shit about wildlife, maybe try giving a shit about your cat’s health life.) (Also farm cats are often not treated well, not provided with proper veterinary care, and there are other options for rodent control that doesn’t put other wildlife in as much danger) also consider: this is 100% something that you, as an individual, can do to mitigate some of the natural disaster that is the anthropocene. We’re on track to lose something like 80% of global biodiversity by the end of the century, and there’s almost nothing that your average citizen can do about it. But keeping your cats inside to help preserve local biodiversity and mitigating the damage that ferals do is actually something that you can do.

Ash, Dad, and Desperate: HELLO, EUERYOnE. I WANT TO REACH OUT TO YOU GUYS FOR HELP. EUEN A LITTLE. PLEASE CONSIDER BELOW knightingaleforce: Hello guys, Ash/Gale here. Oofff……okay this is hard for me to have to put this up because first I don’t want to come off as desperate and second, I’m so tired and stressed about this that I haven’t even slept. I’m hoping some followers on this blog could help spread the word, it’s really important. Today at the vet, I was advised to take my cat Oliver to a specialist because in the past few days he has hasn’t been his normal self. The pic above is when he was still healthy – but now he is no longer able to move as much, only able to hold himself up for a mere few seconds, then giving up and sinking to the floor. He now hasn’t eaten much for days. The vet cannot assess what’s wrong with him unless they look at an MRI scan, which is costly. And this is where I ask for financial help. The link below will direct you to a gofund page. I’d appreciate any help, truly! https://www.gofundme.com/kittyoliver I’m afraid leaving Oliver in his somewhat vegetated condition will only make things worse for him. My dad, who is more concerned about the costs (and rightly so, because we only live from paycheck-to-paycheck) suggests to euthanize Oliver. And that is not something I want to do. He is part of our family and an immense joy stress-reliever for my mom especially. To have to put him down just because of this is heartbreaking to me. Please, even if you can’t donate any amount, just reblogging helps a TON. I’m so sorry this is so out of the blue, but it would mean so much to me 😞 THanks so much.
