Keep Your Cat Indoors

Outdoor Cat Pictures | Download Free Images on UnsplashDomestic cats can make wonderful pets. But cats that roam outdoors, can have serious consequences. Recent estimates name cats as the number one unnatural killer of birds in the U.S.  Outdoors, cats are a non-native and invasive species that threaten birds and other wildlife, disrupt ecosystems, and spread diseases.

Cat owners can help to protect birds and other property by keeping their pet cats indoors. This practice is also beneficial to cats themselves. Studies have proven that indoor cats are healthier, safer, and live longer than their outdoor counterparts.  Check out the American Bird Conservancy to find out how to keep your furry feline friend safe.
