Cats eat birds and skinks during the day or small mammals and Geckos at
night like Eastern Barred Bandicoots around Hamilton in Victoria. There is
no best time to let them out. Keep them de-sexed, well fed and lethargically
fat. Back to the hybrid, its worth mentioning here that the Serval is a bird
ambush specialist especially around water sources in a dry environment.
There have been plenty of images on television of them snatching Sand-grouse
out the air as they come in to drink. Just replace Sand-grouse with Flock
Bronzewing or what ever. Secondly the original article mentions Asian
Leopard as one of the parents, I think that should read Asian Leopard Cat
which has already been hybridised with the domestic moggy to give rise to
the Bengal I think. If it really was a Leopard cross then it may help
control all the Goats. Just joking. I would strongly support keeping this
new breed out, lets hope the authorities are up to making the right decision

Cheers Jeff.

Won't a curfew increase diurnal predation on birds. Look at the Canberra
cat prey in my previous message, if Canberra cats are to kept partially
inside to protect native wildlife, shouldn't it be during the day?

Obviously this may be different in other areas.
