No Cat Zone is not about hating cats but getting community understanding where and how they fit in a modern society with competing pressures like extinction of species, loss of habitat, feral predation while at the same time recognizing people have cats as pets, some cats are abandoned, some cat owners are more responsible than others and what would happen to mice and rat communities if all cats were removed from the suburbs. Finally what about the neighbour who encourages birds into the garden or has fish and is witness to constant visits from local domestic cats stalking or used the vegie patch as a toilet, the children's sand pit. The issues are many and complex.
