When I lived with my Dad on a quiet street I would let my cat outside and she would just stay right in the tiny little jungle the HOA had crafted in his front yard. I would sometimes find half-dead grasshoppers and other bugs. My cat is an indoor cat now, partly because the neighborhood I’m in isn’t as quiet and partly because she’s clearly a psychopath that wants to watch bugs suffer. To be completely accurate, cats are environmental terrorists, they wreak havoc on native wildlife. They are 100% not comparable to wolves.
Otoh, that wholesome story about predators likely does not apply to house cats. They kill a LOT of animals and don’t really need to as they mostly eat at home. Yup, my cat is indoor-only because I see how ferocious she was as a kitten when playing with her toys. She would kill many small animals outdoors if she was given the chance. She is a great mouser, which provides our house with ecologically friendly pest control.
