Cute cartoon, but in reality it appears that feral cats, at least in colonies where they're regularly fed, are content to leave the chickens alone, and the chickens like to scavenge uneaten cat food, so they probably view the cats as more of a resource than a threat.

This is a simple problem solved. Give the Boy/Girl Scouts and other Charitable orgs the task of catching, plucking and cooking the chickens and then feed the homeless. You end up killing two birds with one stone, might I say.

Congratulations on being the first cartoon in history to include both feral cats and feral chickens! The cartoon inveighs the name of feral cats while projecting speciesism upon the peafowl who are exhibiting the base human need to rise from oppression by throwing a more despised group under the bus. Demagoguery 101 if you will. All while taking a jab at politicians in the political season. Pure genius.
