Genevieve Perkins is a Biology graduate student at Carlton University studying domestic cats
across Ottawa. She is trying to determine the number of cats across Ottawa by
interviewing residents. Her aim is to see what relationships exist between
birds, cats, squirrels and raccoons across the city. She is currently
conducting door to door surveys in our area.
Predation by domestic cats is thought to have a negative impact
on many birds, rodents and reptiles. In cities the impact on birds may be
large due to the high concentration of cats, however, no evidence has been
collected within Canada to support these trends. For my research I will be
estimating the density of cat numbers throughout Ottawa by interviewing
households. I will compare these findings with bird survey data collected
under the Ottawa Breeding Bird Count to investigate;
1) if cat density effects the diversity and abundance of bird species;
2) which bird species are most affected by cat densities.
For any residents who are interested in participating in this research,
you can complete a short online survey
HERE (approximately 5-10 minutes).
