Absolutely agree.

over the years we've probably dealt with 10K$ in damage to patio furniture, plants, etc caused by roaming cats whose owners would always just say "well, they are cats" but would freak the hell out when my dogs would catch and kill them

We've got a feral colony in our neighborhood and a crazy cat lady that feeds them twice a day---they do not kill rats or squirrels (which is needed) but you seldom see a bird other than a grackle around here and everybody who doesn't have dogs have yards full of cat feces. If it was legal I'd shoot every damn one of them right now.

Yes.
I have been saying this earlier.
Keep pet cats inside.

Good luck with that. Be prepared for your mouse and rat populations to soar.
