There is a strong argument against letting cats go outside period, due to the damage they cause to native wildlife. In parts of the eastern hemisphere where wildcats (their ancestor) are native, they also endanger the native wildcat by hybridizing with it. I would tend to agree with this argument myself.

That's true, and the reason why hunters around here (Germany) are very eager to shoot any unguarded cat (or dog, btw) they encounter.

I don't know about the radius of a cat though, for example if you have one cat on a farm with greenland around it, the cat is unlikely to encounter any protected wildlife but probably chases mice and rats as ordered.

Actually I've come to discover I'm neither, I like vegetarians better. I'm a (wild) horse person outside and rabbit and guinea pig person at home :-). All of these are absolutely oblivious to any orders, which imho is excellent behavior ... but their problem too, as indeed most humans aren't ready to deal with this.

So my "as ordered" was ironical, I just forgot the smiley :-p
