Cats feral or not are a real pain here in the UK as well. Just wander over everyone elses property but there own, killing anything and everything they can. With regard to sudden loss of rabbits, do you have Rabbit Haemerragic Disease in the USA ?? We have it over here in the UK. You can have hundreds of rabbits one day and 48hrs latter nothing but a few youngsters hopping about and the dead ones stay underground. Apparently very young rabbits can survive, but it literally wipes out a whole colony overnight. We have been used to Myxy since the early 50s but this is a relatively new killer. Ferreting for rabbits in winter is a favourite day out for me.Iv'e been seeing loads of rabbits on my property all spring & Summer now that it is Oct. Rabbit season here they seemed to just vanished.? We have 2 feral Cats roaming around & I & my neighbor feels that they are the culprit for the not seeing any more Rabbits around. We will fix these cats for good.How is this recipe for Feral Cats.? HA HA
