Recently I found lots of feathers ripped from a woodpecker by the bird feeder and birdbath. We saw two different cats each catch a chipmunk, two blue jays and a mourning dove. Last year they were killing squirrels too.

They are not killing to eat, they are killing by instinct just to kill. We live on Oakland Street and the cats seem to come from Francis St. It is inconsiderate of you to have us pick up all the dead animals in our own yard. They also dig up our garden soil and poop where we grow our food.

My dog is on a leash when walked and I clean up any poop. I also do not let the dog chase cats or do them harm.

Keep your domesticated cats at home, please. If you refuse to be good neighbors, at least put a bell on a collar to warn their prey. Also, Oakland Street has cars and motorcycles that speed and your cat will be killed eventually. They could also be sickened by rabies or by pesticides that people put around their homes.
