Vicious, bird-killing machines totally devoid of conscience, or unfortunate scapegoats (scapecats?) for humanity's somewhat more ruinous ecological destruction? One thing's for certain: lots of people have VIEWS when it comes to cats. So this week we try to understand some of the facts (spoiler: cats are really good at killing), and wrestle with questions like: Can you be a greenie and have a cat without being a massive hypocrite? Can cats be vegan? Is Ol's cat a git? Also this week, less than ideal weather news from the Arctic. Gulp. Sustainababble is your friendly environment podcast, out weekly.
