Cats & Birds Don't Mix presented by Julie Jeter, Wildlife Biologist

Thursday, October 1  7 PM

Cats and birds don't mix. The Virginia Chapter of the Wildlife Society reports that feral cats are estimated to kill 3-26 million songbirds, 27-78 million small mammals and 2.5-9 million reptiles each year in Virginia alone. The domestic cat has caused the extinction of 33 bird species worldwide. Supplemental feeding of feral cats likely increases their population. In addition, they are a vector for disease. Julie Jeter will discuss the importance of keeping cats indoors. She has 30 years’ experience in wildlife biology and 20 years’ experience in environmental compliance

Keep cats healthy! Keep them indoors. Visit the 'Cats Indoors' website to learn more.
