Catch, neuter and return feral cats

My reply to a huggly, cuddly TNR post:

Nowhere in this blog or the replies is the welfare of our natural wildlife mentioned! You use the words compassion, humane, and non-lethal when writing of an unwanted domestic pet illegally dumped into our ecology. Where is your compassion for the billion of our birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish they are estimated to kill each year? Perhaps, that number is exaggerated let's call it a half billion, shall we?
Imagine the starving fledglings who weaken and die when the parents don't come home, the baby rabbits murdered in their nests. How could the life of an abandoned pet be more valuable than theirs? Let's act responsibly and adult and take the pets out of our fragile ecology!
