Missing Spring Songs

Now that spring is here – and might even feel like it soon – it’s time to let the songbirds sing – that means don’t let them get eaten. According to scientists, as many as 3.7 billion birds of every kind are eaten by stray or out-the-door house cats every year in the U.S. That’s a lot of spring songs we’ll never hear. Cat lovers, please keep your cats indoors. I’d like less of what they leave behind on my lawn, too. Unless you live on a farm where cats have real work to do, city cats love longer, healthier, safer and do less harm when you keep them home.
