Iím a cat guy, we have 4 of them. Theyíve never been outside since they were rounded up as kittens. I had them declawed and neutered when I got them. This crew would be terrified if they were to set foot in the yard. Thereís a big tom cat that has hung around outside my place for three plus years. I donít know if he belongs to the neighbors, we donít feed him but he looks well fed. He sits on my wood pile and suns himself, hunts mice around my fur shed, garages and honey house. I havenít caught any mice in my traps since he showed up. When I leave the doors open on the outbuildings and he always goes in to look around.
Cats are amazing predators....Iíve seen one of ours stake out a spot in the basement for a day and a half waiting out a mouse. When I was a kid, we had a cat that was inside/outside, it would catch half grown groundhogs and drag them onto the front porch.
Iíve seen feral cats miles from homes, even saw a couple way out Sproul SF. Those cats donít get a get out of jail free card when Iím trapping.
