For cats living in Canberra, life could be about to change. There is a talk of banning all pet cats from roaming free in the nation’s capital. This means that their owners need to keep their cats inside or lock them in a special enclosure all the time.
One main reason they are banning cats is so they stop hunting native animals. Cats might look soft and cuddly but they are actually efficient killers. Most small native animals, like birds, don’t stand a chance against them. So keeping your cat inside will help keep native animals alive.
