People should keep cats inside, or to outdoor enclosures as the furthest as they can wander from a home (sorry, dilbs). Safer for cats, safer for birds. IMO, banning the animal at this point is at the moment politically unactionable. It's hard to imagine a politician running a successful campaign on the foundation of banning cats or dogs.
Your other assertions are weird. Cat people being antisocial sounds like a stereotype to me. Cat lording it over their owners is pure meme. People spoil their dogs too, but cats bear the brunt of this reputation. "My vet partner said" doesn't seem like the rule on that appeal to authority. All my vets have had cats. *shrug*
Besides which, golf is fairly environmentally dubious, no?
I only mention the vet part because vets and vet nurses are animal people, and tend to be usually weird themselves. I thought that went without saying. People pets reflect their personalities as it is what is comfortable. Catss are solitary and dogs are social, so are their owners. Cat owners being weird is not just a meme thing. As a tier of weird personalities goes its cats >> horses >> dogs though.
Sure, golf is environmentally dubious sure, but its not killing billions of animals every year, extinction level dubious now is it? It's "gee, that sure is a lot of grass to maintain, think of all those bugs that need to move over a bit" dubious.
