    Fairfax NZ: Cats are natural born killers

    A website called Cats to Go has been established by economist and businessman Gareth Morgan, who has branded the cat a "friendly neighbourhood serial killer".

    "That little ball of fluff you own is a natural-born killer," his website says.

    Morgan wants owners to make their current cat their last to protect New Zealand's native birds and environment.

    [...]

    Herb Christophers, of the Department of Conservation, said feral cats were a "threat to wildlife" and considered a pest on conservation land. The cat was in the same category as stoats, rats, possums and ferrets.

    "When you're a native bird fighting a battle on many fronts, the last thing you need is another predator, and cats are one of those."
