News 1996 May – The Field: Sounding The Alarm –
I write in reference to the RSPB article March issue, which refers to the fact that Britain’s cats are responsible for the death of 75 million birds a year. I am not disputing the number, as I know that the cat is the perfect killing machine.
I am a bird and animal lover and am continually rescuing or burying rabbits, mice and birds which my cats bring home. I have six cats only two of which are avid hunters. They both wear collars with six bells apiece during the daylight hours of the bird-breeding season.
This cuts considerably the number of birds killed. This works for me and my cats as they are frequently monitored. Cats alone all day or out at night could get themselves into difficulties with a badly fitting collar or wrongly attached bells, and could not be noticed. Make sure therefore you fit correctly.
‘It certainly does work for me and everyone I have talked to.’
