Australians are being encouraged to keep their cats indoors to protect native wildlife.
A nationwide crackdown on cats has edged closer after a new study found they are killing billions of Australian native animals each year.
Research has found every single feral cat slaughters more than 740 local wildlife creatures annually, but even pet cats can each kill 180 on average every year, vastly up from previous estimates of just 75 a year.
Nationwide, every day three million mammals, two million reptiles and one million marsupials are dying from feral and pet cat attacks.
