Which part is animal cruelty? Increasing your pets' lifespans by
keeping them out of traffic, out of the yards of people who will poison
or shoot them, and out of fights with other animals who may be
diseased, or preventing the the killing of local native fauna?
Sorry, but I do think that people who are not willing to take
responsibility for their pets' safety and for their behavior probably
just shouldn't have pets.
Jennifer, presumptuous :)
unless they lock them up too eh?
the indoor/outdoor cat debate has been raging for years, I don't impose
my opinions on others or their animals and appreciate it when others
accord me the same respect.
for the record, I have cats, dogs and children, all are properly cared
for, receive appropriate medical care, and do not impose on other
people's space. I hope they can all continue to live free, healthy and
happy and I will endeavour to make sure of that as long as I breathe.
Cat scratch disease
Dermatomycosis (fungal 'ringworm')
RABIES (reported in the past week in a kitten, locally)
Ancylostomiasis, Cutaneous larval migrans (hookworms)
Toxocariasis, Visceral larval migrans (roundworms)
Some (most?) of these are more likely to found in cats that hunt outdoors
rather than in indoor cats under proper veterinary care.
(For the record, I like cats as pets, indoors, but don't have any as I am
allergic to them.)

Take your own advise and google!
In the mean time there are numerous diseases spread to domestic cats
by poorly cared for and feral cats!!
