We are what is known as a multi-cat household because we have quite a few cats. We also have a well tended garden, lots of bird tables and the like and no complaints from the neighbours. How?
We have a large enclosure (about 25m long) in our garden, attached to the house, so that those cats who want to leave the comfort of their heated cat bed or warm room can nip out the window into the enclosure for a leg stretch. Okay so it means more work and expense for us but we built our first enclosure at our old house because we lost too many cats to the traffic where we lived. This one was built before we moved in and we know our cats are safe from predators, some diseases and irate gardeners.
We hate seeing the mess other people's cats make and the damage they can do to birds so we can speak for both sides of the debate.
