Another Cat Enabler's Myth! "Isn’t my cat a ‘natural’ predator?"

This is an excerpt from The CATS IN KENNELS

NO. Your cat is a domestic species, overpopulated and introduced into the natural
environment by humans. The dead animals and birds you see your cat kill are about half of what it actually takes. Cats do not belong in the natural environment. Not only do they kill animals directly, but they compete with natural predators like hawks, owls and foxes for food. They also destroy nests and kill newborn animals. With the pressure that wildlife and bird species endure from the decrease in habitat and the increase of human populations, their unnecessary destruction by our overpopulated pet cats makes it unconscionable for us as a society to ignore.
