New Zealand's Nonsense War on Cats Continues ApaceMadeleine Davies5/15/13 3:05pmFiled to: war on catscatsnew zealand194EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkDon't you wish that New Zealand's war on cats was actually a war OF cats? Think of it! It could be like Redwall and Narnia come to life, but no — instead it's a boring ol' war on cats as environmentalists push for the nationwide eradication of a beloved household pet. The war! It soldiers on!We first reported on Gareth Morgan, a Kiwi economist-turned-environmental-activist, back in January when his anti-cat campaign was in its infancy. He had just kicked off the website Cats To Go, which urged pet owners to stop considering cats and even consider putting down the kitties that they already had. Why? Because they're seriously fucking up New Zealand's exotic bird population.
