My cats growing up were always allowed out to roam. Maybe it's bad for wildlife, but so was fucking suburbia and humankind in general. Strange that we allow ourselves to run wild screwing up the world and putting ourselves at risk, but insist on restraining our pets for their safety and the safety of others. I know there are good reasons, but some of these pet laws are starting to get ridiculous.
