Hi Graham,

You are certainly correct that cats are not the only human induced pressure on our wildlife. Cats are, however, harder to confine than dogs, and hunt solitarily. Dogs are pack hunters. The concept of confining dogs to fenced areas is also much more common than confining cats to enclosures. That doesn't mean that dogs don't kill wildlife but the cat problem is much greater. The resouces that go into feeding the millions of cats (and dogs) in Australia would also have an environmental cost.
