That's because he's an outdoor cat

This is like blaming cattle for CO2 emissions when humans are the root cause of the issue
Domestic cats exist because of humans, it's people that are the problem

We have 2 cats who we walk on leashes. It's not hard and they love it and it keeps them safe primarily. I have personally prevented the neighbor's cat from being stolen.
It's also easier on the wildlife, although the boy cas caught 2 birds, a chipmunk and a baby bunny, all while leashed.(he is a baaaad motherfucker) They were all fine. The girls gets voles and once got a chipmunk. Again, they all lived.

Same - we have a stroller, leashes, and an enclosed catio, on top of the enrichment we use in the home. None of it was difficult to teach the cats to do. They get exposure to all the fun, safe parts of being outside, without being able to produce harm or be harmed.

Its insane that we have no problem with putting these basic, simple restrictions on dogs but not cats.

Honestly we're probably only clocking 80% with dogs anyway. The amount of terrible dog owners I see who flaunt all the rules and who will say "oh he never does that!" when their dog straight up attacks a dog or a child is insane.
