Cats & the Environment Resource Center

Cats have lived outdoors for more than 10,000 years—they are a natural part of the landscape. Today, they live healthy lives outdoors and play important roles in the ecosystem—as they did thousands of years ago and as all domestic cats are biologically adapted to do. What has changed in that time is how people have re-shaped the environment to suit our needs, at a great cost to the other species that share our ecosystem.

The tools in this center will help you advocate on behalf of cats and understand the implications behind calls for cats to be “removed” from the environment—and killed.
