Perhaps that's because cats don't attack sheep.
I would have thought it was more important to increase the neutering rate than
the confinement rate, but both would be good.
You didn't say what area you're from, Warren. Here in Victoria, cat
registration is compulsory, and it's generally much more expensive for
unneutered cats. A good start, but I don't know how well enforced it is.
I read (here?) that soon neutering will be compulsory in WA.
