Man Urges New Zealand to Kill All Cats

Everybody loves cats, right? Well, not New Zealand economist Gareth Morgan. He's arging that "little ball of fluff you own is a natural born killer" and that the only way to save the wildlife of New Zealand is to kill them all:

"Every year, cats in New Zealand destroy our native wildlife. The fact is that cats have to go if we really care about our environment."

Morgan said his website "deals with some of the myths and white lies we tell ourselves" to justify owning a cat.

"I am advocating responsible pet ownership, not for people to bop their pets on the head ... When their cat dies, I think people should consider not replacing it."

However, Morgan's website goes as far as to suggest people euthanise their current pets as "one option" for pet owners.

He mostly is advocating that your cat should be kept indoors, should be spade or neutered, and that neighborhoods, cities and counties make an effort to neuter or spay strays. I agree with these things.

Better time spent on wildlife than indoors, slowly hatching plans to murder humans in their sleep; -especially when they give you that, "I'm trying to make your brain explode with my Dr. X Mind-Ray"-look from their evil under-footstool lair.
