A prominent concern is the issue of free roaming domestic cats (feral and pet animals). A great deal of research has been done and continues to be done on cat and bird interactions with birds and other wildlife not faring well.
Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society’s Feral and Roaming Cat Position Statement
Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society (WCAS), following the National Audubon Society’s guidelines, is an organization dedicated to the conservation of, protection of, advocate for and education about birds and other wildlife. Birds, around the world and in our own neighborhoods, are being affected by a number of environmental issues, some of which may be handled at a local or state level. A prominent concern is the issue of free roaming domestic cats (feral and pet animals). A great deal of research has been done and continues to be done on cat and bird interactions with birds and other wildlife not faring well.
WCAS supports the protection of birds and bird habitats. We also understand the passion for companion pets and those who care for abandoned pets. The extent of research of cats on birdlife leads us to take the position that cats be kept indoors, or if outdoors, are haltered and leashed with a human companion. We encourage compassion toward all animals and applaud those who work to spay, neuter, vaccinate and find homes for stray and feral cats. We support the cat-caring community as well as those who protect birds and bird/wildlife habitats.
