Can My Cat Go Out if He Bullies Other Cats?

If animals don’t have rights, you might adopt another approach, in which you simply weigh the pleasure that Jasper takes and gives in his outings against the suffering of the cats he bullies.

He doesn’t outright fight them, but he corners them, intimidates them and chases them, often until the other cat screams, bolts and goes into her own home. Almost daily, I’ll hear the wailings of another cat, and I know Jasper is at fault.
