Well some of that wildlife needs to be controlled.
Rats and mice?
 
I mostly stay out of this debate because my cat goes outside, but the ecologists claim that cats have a minimal effect on the rodents but a big effect on the native species. Australian native animals are poorly adapted to deal with predators. 

 
I'm sure this is valid, but my immediate reaction is:

a) isn't everything in your land poisonous, bitey, spikey, staby or otherwise generally mean?  How can hello kitty suddenly be the biggest threat. 

2) You have a city named DARWIN! 

iii) sorry.

We (and at least one neighbor) practice TNR: Trap, Neuter, Return. The city covers the cost of having them neutered, we pay a few bucks to vaccinate them and have an ear snipped. We've been able to accomplish this with 15 cats since we've lived here.

 
Good for you!

We still have plenty of birds and squirrels around here.... difficult to perceive them as a threat. ymmv
 

"While most of us love our kitties, free-roaming outdoor cats are a major threat to wildlife. These non-native predators kill billions of birds, small mammals, reptiles, and amphibians each year. Sadly, when wild animals are attacked by cats, their chances of survival are extremely low, due to both the severity of direct injuries and the very aggressive infection that invariably occurs with cat-related injuries, including minor scratches or bites. Even with veterinary treatment, survival rates are very low; without treatment, chances for survival are almost zero!"

Exactly! And something I learned from my ex, the falconer, is that cats carry a particular bacteria. So, if a bird of prey catches, not even kills, a cat it is potentially a death sentence for the bird. Any time his golden eagle would touch a cat out in the field, he would have to put his bird on a course of antibiotics.

 we have a few low cost spay/neuter programs but no one is working right now. businesses are starting to open up now, we'll have to make calls again to find out if any programs are being offered yet.
