Feral cats, Tamed but outdoors

Should cats be treated any differently than dogs?? I don't think so at all. It is a problem around Ketchikan that should be dealt with instead of letting cats run free without a license. If my dog were running loose there would be a fine. If it were to bite somebody it would be impounded and a fee would be imposed.

I have heard of people being bitten by a cat and having to get a shot as a result. Some are dirty animals that are like a rat but won't eat one when food is being giving to them.

Here is another bit of info. Cats kill up to 3.7B birds annually
