The Polish Institute of Nature Conversation has added domestic cats to its database of “invasive alien species,” causing a firestorm as cat lovers in the nation push back on the decision.
Cats—technically, felis catus—were added to the list earlier this month, the Associated Press reported on Tuesday. According to a blog posted by the institute due to the “controversy” over the decision, cats have a negative effect on local wildlife (birds, for example) and are technically not native to Poland.
“The domestic cat, felis catus, was domesticated probably around 10,000 years ago in the cradle of the great civilizations of the ancient Near East, stretching from the Nile Valley to southern Mesopotamia,” the blog states. “Therefore, from a purely scientific perspective, in Europe, and therefore also in Poland, it should be considered an alien species.”
That domestic cats wreak havoc on the wildlife in their local stomping grounds isn’t a major revelation by any means, but the Polish public still balked at the inclusion of cats in the list of roughly 1,800 other invasive animals. In a televised segment where a veterinarian debated a biologist at the institute over the decision, the vet said, “Ask if man is on the list of non-invasive alien species,” the AP reported.
According to the institute’s blog addressing the controversy, the domestic cat may be an alien invasive species, but it doesn’t pose a threat to Poland, so there’s no need to worry about troubling consequences of the decision. “Therefore, the provisions of the Act regarding the need to apply for a permit or conduct remedial measures, including the elimination, isolation and control of the population, do not apply to the domestic cat,” the blog states.
Although the decision in Poland is upsetting to cat lovers, it’s in line with how many conservationists see cats: Functioning as an invasive species, killing swaths of wildlife, and generally acting like psychopaths (who we love).

RE “Although the decision in Poland is upsetting to cat lovers, it’s in line with how many conservationists see cats: Functioning as an invasive species, killing swaths of wildlife, and generally acting like psychopaths (who we love).”
It’s ALL an utter distraction of the public from seeing this fact: a mafia network of manipulating PSYCHOPATHS are governing big businesses (eg official medicine), nations and the world — the evidence is OVERWHELMING and TOTALLY IRREFUTABLE (see “The 2 Married Pink Elephants In The Historical Room”… https://www.rolf-hefti.com/covid-19-coronavirus.html
Isn’t it about time for anyone to wake up to the ULTIMATE DEPTH of the rabbit hole — rather than remain blissfully willfully ignorant and play victim like a little child?
And psychopaths are typically NOT how Hollywood propaganda movies have showcased them. And therefore one better RE-learns what a psychopath REALLY is. But global rulership by psychopaths is only ONE part of the equation that makes up the destructive human condition as the article explains because there are TWO pink elephants in the room… and they’re MARRIED (see cited source above).

I won’t say what my response to Poland us because I’d be banned from WordPress, but listing cats as an invasive species is absolutely ridiculous. I’d say humans are the invasive species. Just because we walk upright doesn’t mean we have any more intelligence than a snail. We kill more species than any other animal and frankly humans are obnoxious. Cats and other pets give unconditional love to us while we damned well don’t deserve that kind of love.
We have taken in two stray cats who needed a home. They are not aggressive. They don’t have free range outside. We keep them in the house. We have had other cats, but they lived a long life, and died of natural causes. One lived to be 13. I do way they have a calming effect for those who are nervous. The cats I have dealt with are mostly strays that no one wanted. We fed them, and they adjusted to our home. We kept them inside, but my son did much of the work of keeping them fit, and taking them to the doctor for shots. I believe these would have become too thin and died if we hadn’t stepped in to help them. They were beautiful, and now those are gone except two. Two cats are enough. Our son still works with these two, and takes them for their routine visits.
We had an older dog, and he adjusted to the new pets. They would sleep right beside him, and he didn’t mind at all.
