I have the same dilemma. Our resident cat actually "belongs" to my (adult)
daughter. I would not have chosen to have a cat, but he's here, neutered,
double-belled and all. I say "dilemma" because of my personal feeling that,
once a domestic pet is acquired, it should not be summarily disposed of
merely because it is inconvenient.
Like Andrew, I am at a bit of a loss to know what can be done. Since the cat
has not been trained and reared to be an indoor-dwelling cat, keeping him
locked inside isn't an option -- loud wailing, shredded carpets etc result.
Feeding him fresh rather than canned meat seems to help keep his killing
instincts under control, but I would sincerely appreciate suggestions
(off-list) from other cat support staff who've managed the problem
