cat because he is old, blind,
a bit slow at getting around,

it turns out the cat is actually
mad, plays every waking

those moments he never
got, and is super duper

“The most interesting stats in this, from the position of cat advocacy

Last month the RSPCA released a position paper, sponsored and paid for by the Threatened Species
Commissioner's department. And the recommendations will absolutely horrify you.
OCTOBER 2017 DOGGIERESCUE.COM CATS E-MAGAZINE 11
The very first recommendation - literally recommendation numero uno - is "declaring
feral cats as a pest species"... "across all states and territories".
But why? What would be the benefit of declaring feral cats a pest species? The paper
goes on to explain as quoted below;
Declaring an animal as a pest species places restrictions on movement, keeping, sale
and release of that species. It may also require landowners to control or destroy
declared pests on their property or to notify authorities about their presence.
It also provides legal protection for landholders undertaking trapping and poisoning,
although this also means there may be less incentive to choose the most humane
In those states that have not declared feral cats as a pest species, people who under-
take control measures may risk prosecution as these activities may contravene animal
welfare legislation, as some control measures will inevitably result in animal cruelty.
“So in this instance the RSPCA is advocating for less welfare protections for a known group of animals.
Hang on, take a moment to think about that for a second. Our major animal welfare group is
advocating for less protection for a group of animals (cats who have been labelled "feral") and more
protections from prosecution from cruelty from those who seek to kill them.”
“In fact, they're going even one step further. By advocating that cats labelled "feral" are declared
a pest species, landowners are compelled by law to destroy these animals. No one can save
them - no one can remove them from an area where they might be harmed, nor can they be re-
leased (TNR). By law, a cat labelled "feral" must be slaughtered under RSPCA recommendations.
The RSPCA is lobbying for legislating expanded cat culling. Our major animal welfare group. But that's
not even the end of it. The RSPCA goes on to recognise that by compelling these landholders to kill
these cats, and protecting these same landholders from prosecution under welfare laws, that is known to
incentivise using less humane methods to kill cats. It decreases welfare outcomes, for cats.”
Quoted: “Just like that, the RSPCA has thrown - by its own admission on cat populations - up to
9 out of 10 cats, to the mercy of local council officers and landowners, while recommending that
they be compelled to kill these cats, and be immune from prosecution under welfare legislation.”

TAKE CARE OF ALL CATS
Black cats are a well-known symbol of the “scary” things associated with Halloween. Did you know that
sources attribute that to two (not too intelligent) men in the middle-ages, when they thought that an old
single woman was capable of turning into a black cat, and that is how witches and black cats were aligned.
Black cats do not deserve the
“unlucky” or “evil” labels that
people with superstitions may
use. We all know that the
colour of a kitty cannot affect
its behaviour and that “cat
people” do not exist other than
the people who love caring for
kitties in rescue shelters!
Happily today we now treat
Halloween, black cats and
witches with a sense of
humour and fun.
