Town Hall Seattle says
Mounting scientific evidence suggests that free-ranging cats are ruthless killers. Cat Wars, by Peter Marra and Chris Santella, traces the historical and cultural ties between humans and cats and asserts that the “cuddly killers” threaten biodiversity and public health throughout the world. A character in Jonathan Franzen’s novel Freedom, doggedly (pun intended) campaigns against the cats killing birds in his rural neighborhood. This zeal reflects Franzen’s own position on the “calamitous problem of free-roaming cats.” He praises Cat Wars for addressing this difficult topic and for “its engaging storytelling, its scientific approach, and its compassionate handling of a highly fraught issue.” Marra and Santella discuss a complex global problem—and propose solutions that foresee a time when wildlife and humans are no longer vulnerable to the impacts of free-ranging cats.
