Florida has listed over 4,000 non-native species that they consider invasive based on their impact on the environment. Curiously, ordinary house cats are also considered invasive species because they kill birds, rodents, and anything else they can get their furry little paws on. So if you want to protect Florida’s natural wildlife, keep your cat indoors.
