    I love cats but haven't had one for decades. Since moving to
    suburbia, I've been really sickened by other people's cats shitting in
    my very carefully prepared veggie garden soil.

    I've been really tempted to set up the cat trap and then if I'd caught
    any cats to drive several hours away and dump the cats in a refuge
    miles from here. I haven't done it but I've been very tempted as a
    from of punishment for the irresponsible cat owners.


    All Canberra suburbs to contain new cats from July 1, 2022
    The ACT is introducing city-wide containment for all new cats from
    the middle of next year.

    Currently, all cats in new Canberra suburbs have to be kept indoors
    or in cat runs at all times.

    And fair enough too.

    Aww, just think of all the poor predators that will be going hungry:
