Best thing to do, is for anyone who feels that there should be positive action
by State and Federal governments regarding feral cat control, is to write to
the State and Federal Ministers and your State and Federal MPs (don't forget
your state's Senators). With MPs, it is probably best to send the letters to
their electoral offices, then they are less likely to be caught up in the great
Parliament House filter.
Nothing will happen if we all sit on our hands, saying "someone should do
something about it.
