I've trapped and killed lots of animals in my bird netting, but never
a cat. I've only trapped things with heads small enough to get into
one of the holes, so mostly chipmunks and juncos (a bird) but some
other small critters, too. (Mice and other birds.) Cats are WAY to
big to killed by by bird netting. I suppose one might possibly get
tangled in it, (never happened to any of my cats, who have
collectively spent a lot of time near the netting) but it'd just be a
trapped paw, and I assume a cat with a trapped paw would live long
enough for you to see it and cut it free.
