I propose to delete this post:
I’m aware that posting anything mentioning domestic cats (other than to share some cute behaviour, or to ask for help finding a missing one) can result in an emotive debate over their impact on wildlife (an average of 50 and 138 wild animals killed per cat per annum, according to a survey reported in British Wildlife.
The response to this observation has been very mild, compared to what gets posted elsewhere. However, the post fails in its main intent, which was to record the fledging of the species in my part of the world: it has gained no agreements.
So I’m proposing to remove it, rather than leave it as a rather downbeat post.
