Cats don't "just" catch rodents when they go outside; a huge variety of wildlife species can be affected. Keeping cats indoors (or restricted to catios/catteries for outdoor time) keeps wildlife safe; it also keeps cats safe too! ... See MoreSee Less
'Tis the way of nature.
My cats just watch but my dog would love to be a bird dog. I keep them indoors.
Yea domestic felines . .
Cats suck. That is all.
Well you will have your work cut out for you! Demonizing cats is not the way to go, they usually are feral and homeless. Spay and neutering is the responsible cat owners best option.
yeah, somebody nailed my gopher snake! now the gopher feels very bold.
Kill all kats n save the rest!

Freedom Friday! This female, juvenile Cooper’s Hawk was brought to our clinic after being found in Morro Bay unable to stand or use her legs. These long-tailed accipiters race through dense foliage in pursuit of small birds and frequently hit windows. She was given an anti-inflammatory drug and pain medication and allowed several weeks of recuperation before being returned to her wild home. Thank you to our supporters, volunteers and staff for making these success stories possible!

Our hearts go out to the people of Los Angeles and Ventura counties as they cope with a mass shooting and wildfires. We hope that this Freedom Friday video brings a little cheer at this time of grief and sadness.
These two Western Grebes came to us emaciated and, in one case, covered in oil. After being washed (please don't try this at home, it takes specialized knowledge), and given a proper diet and vitamins, they were allowed time to regain conditioning and waterproofing in our pelagic pool. Now strong and healthy, the birds were released into the bay. We wish them well and many fish meals!
