Gareth Morgan advocates a New Zealand free of pet cats that threaten native birds
NZ to eradicate pet cats? Purr-ish the thought!

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — Gareth Morgan has a simple dream: a New Zealand free of pet cats that threaten native birds. But the environmental advocate has triggered a claws-out backlash with his anti-feline campaign.

Morgan called on his countrymen Tuesday to make their current cat their last in order to save the nation's unique bird species. He set up a website, called Cats To Go, depicting a tiny kitten with red devil's horns. The opening line: "That little ball of fluff you own is a natural born killer."

He doesn't recommended people euthanize their current cats — "Not necessarily but that is an option" are the site's exact words — but rather neuter them and not replace them when they die. Morgan, an economist and well-known businessman, also suggests people keep cats indoors and that local governments make registration mandatory.

Morgan's campaign is not sitting well in a country that boasts one of the highest cat ownership rates in the world.

"I say to Gareth Morgan, butt out of our lives," Bob Kerridge, the president of the Royal New Zealand Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, told the current affairs television show Campbell Live. "Don't deprive us of the beautiful companionship that a cat can provide individually and as a family."

For thousands of years, New Zealand's native birds had no predators and flourished. Some species, like the kiwi, became flightless. But the arrival of mankind and its introduction of predators like cats, dogs and rodents have wiped out some native bird species altogether and endangered many others.

Our feline overlords will not stand for this.

This human "Gareth Morgan" will be dealt with.

His thinly veiled attempt to instigate rebellion against the Mighty Cat Empire of Earth has been noted by my 2 year old ginger tabby, Jones, who is a high ranking member of the Felis Domesticus Secret Police.

I must go now, I can hear him coming, I have already exceeded my designated internets usage for the day.

Feral cats are a plague and should be eradicated.
As long as there are pet cats...there will be feral cats also.
