Feral Cat Myth: Keeping cats indoors during the day reduces its kills

Cats should be indoors at all times, of course!
The number of mammals brought home per cat was lower when cats were equipped with bells or kept indoors at night, however, the number of herpetofauna brought home was greater when cats were kept in at night. The outcome of this is that there appears to be a subjective choice to be made as to whether it is more important to protect herpetofauna or mammals.
