Lunaria.........it seems as if you have fallen into the same trap as the OP in that you appear to assume that we are all the same.
I don't pick and choose what wildlife to "allow" into my garden but I do choose whether I wish to allow other people's destructive pets in there.
I object to your statement that it is "silly and oversensitive" to be angry about cats killing wildlife. No one in this day and age is naïve enough to believe they don't have much impact on wildlife. As has been stated many times on previous "cat" threads, cats are not part of the natural predator chain here and should be restricted in the same manner as other domestic pets.
Watching a Sparrowhawk make a kill just yards from your house and objecting would be "silly and oversensitive" as would banishing snakes from your garden or spiders or anything else you don't happen to like.
If you wish to be taken seriously, I'd suggest you don't just say something to "make mischief". Nor is it very wise to make the assumption that those of us who object to cats in their garden are quite happy to slaughter wildlife which doesn't fit in with their idea of what should be there.
