Forget That the 'Chronicle' Got More Mail on Story Than It Ever Had on Anything Else; Problem Not Taken Seriously Enough!
RECEIVED Fri., Dec. 9, 2005
Dear Editor, Let me start off by saying all my pets are rescues. One of which is an indoor cat. I was grateful to see this article [“The Bloodthirsty Killers of Circle C,” News, Dec. 9] but feel the problem was not taken seriously! According to Texas Parks and Wildlife figures, there are approximately 100,000 free-roaming cats in Austin and three million wild animals, including birds, killed each year. It's not just the senseless death of each bird but the end of reproduction as well leading to the decline of our natural species of birds in Texas. Bird droppings help to plant trees and pollinate fruits, not to mention adding to the beauty of our planet for us to freely enjoy. You can always wash the droppings off your car. Nurture your relationship with yourself and nature; that will give you much more joy than any inanimate object. Look at our world and see the imbalance that is happening. We need to raise our own consciousness individually and honor the love that we truly are.
