Why do people find exterminating pest feral cats so distasteful?
Feral cats are a nuisance. I have a group that is upset because I keep removing the food they are leaving out for cats behind my business. I spent months throwing out the food they left each morning before we opened. When they found out, they were furious. But really, why do they think they have the right to feed pests on someone else's property?
Cats do not control rats. That is a myth spread by cat lovers. A rat is large enough to injure a cat in a fight so cats rarely mess with an adult rat. Plus, open feeding cats actually attracts rats.

Here in Australia feral cats are an invasive pest and are legally allowed to be hunted along with other invasive feral species.
The people with the issues are the people who refuse to open their eyes and seperate the domestic pet cat they keep and the feral cat that has reverted to a wild state and is causing havoc in an ecosystem that was not equipped to handle these types of cats.
Pet cats who are allowed to roam are also heavily problematic as they hunt and kill native wildlife They have no business being let out to roam either and quite frankly if you do let them roam then you sure as 𝙨𝙝𝙞𝙩 better accept the potential consequences of your actions.

The main reason feral cats are a nuisance is if they are out in wildlife habitats killing wildlife, including endangered species. If they are living in the alleys, they are not a problem, and they can even help control the rodent population. If people are feeding them, then they will not suffer. Just leave the food and the cats alone. Even if they do not control rats, you have nothing to lose if you leave the cats alone. You have listed no reason why they are a nuisance to you. What have they done to you personally?

They are stupid
Feral cats cause extinctions. They wipe out entire species and slaughter all manner of song birds and small animals
Cats do NOT control mice or rats at all. In fact the cause more mice and rats and they cause other predators like coyotes and racoons to move in so they can pick the cats off.
A well trained JRT will way, way more rats then any cat will.

Maybe they are humane and have feelings and care unlike people like you who only give a dam about themselves and are bothered by things that don't affect them at all

If it is on your proprrty you can have them charged with trespass and littering.
You are entitled to trap and remove stray animals in your property.

It's also against the law. And will land you in jail with several felony charges.

They keep the rat population down. I’d rather have cats than rats.
