> My cat patrols my garden, and she's not a pest at all.

I'm not so worried about myself, but I live in town and I wouldn't want 
to inflict a cat on the neighbors. They're rather hard to keep penned 
up, if you let them outside at all. And I've had enough problems with 
roaming cats over the years - and complained enough about it to my 
friends! (Then again, I have to listen to my neighbors' dogs barking 
constantly, so maybe they deserve some payback? Well, not ALL of my 
neighbors. Heh, heh.)

Also, there's plenty of traffic in town, and I hate to see cats squished 
on the side of the road - even when they've been a real pain. Too 
tenderhearted, I guess. Perhaps if I lived outside town,... although 
there are so many coyotes around here that cats don't last very long 
outdoors in the country. Most of the rural people I know don't care. 
They're always getting litters of free kittens from someone to replace 
those that disappear. But I'd get too attached to them. Heck, I even 
feed the squirrels! :-D
