Is there a solution to the problem of cat predation on our wildlife?

The problem of cat predation is becoming dire everywhere, and will continue to become more so until ecologists and birders organize and put up a united front with our votes! Some of our present organizations are so diluted by the cat enablers all they do is meekly "study" the situation or reluctantly agree to TNR plans. Meanwhile the cat enablers "experts" are lobbying our politicians.
We hold the winning cards in these facts. There is nothing moral, ethical, lawful, or humane about abandoning a domestic animal into the wild and enabling it to suffer while decimating our wildlife!

as the recipient of many many many dashed kitties (we have a barn, people seem to think this is the place) I can attest to the fact that this is neither good for the cats nor the wildlife. The last trespasser we found looked like a ferret instead of a cat.
What should we do??

Thank you, Bobbie. Yes, their abandoning those kittens was so very inhumane and thoughtless.
What should we do? I'd say we have the leaders and experts among our blogging ecologists and birders it would take to get organized if we can get them to step up and take the reins.
Most of us know we should do something about this, and I've been encouraging everyone I see to speak up, too. If we can get enough dialog going we will get a plan worked out.
