Australian cats

Cats are kept as pets in Australia and are also one of the major invasive species that are causing detrimental effects to indigenous wildlife. For bio-security reasons any cats that are imported to Australia must meet conditions set by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Forestry. There are now an estimated 2.7 million domestic cats and other 18 million feral cats in Australia. I wish there were wild cats in Australia because wild dogs are found in every continent besides Antarctica and wild cats are found in the Americas, Eurasia, and Africa. This is a feral cat with a galah.
