As a big fan of Organic Gardening Magazine, I take no pleasure in expressing my shock surprise at seeing this photo illustrating an otherwise wonderful article about growing wildlife-friendly gardens.  The caption on the right says “Orange Boy watches wildlife from the front porch.”

I don’t imagine he just watches.

Do we need to repost links to research demonstrating the harm done to wildlife by outdoor cats?

  1. Well, Susan: actually, that cat did stay inside or come out to sit on the porch. Anne is especially sensitive about the cat issue. She did not even want this picture to run, except the elderly, feeble cat died soon after this photograph.

  2. Thanks for that info. It deserved a spot IN THE ARTICLE so that readers would learn that indeed there’s knowledge of and sensitivity to the outdoor-cat problem. Rather than showing that cats in a garden are okay, with no explanation.
