As cats usually don’t wear ID tags or are microchipped, they would have to
be identified by the owners before they could be given back. I think that
any cat, feral or domesticated found hunting wildlife, should be regarde as

significant losses of wildlife and no longer have any and don’t intend
having any in the future. One of the main reasons being of course, is that
I am now the carer for 3 rescued Greyhounds and any cat brought into the
house would have a short but exciting life. My nect door neighbour has 5
cats which used to spend a lot of time in my back yard. They do not venture
