A new national approach and co-ordinated effort is needed to control feral cats, according to the Federal Government.
Threatened Species Commissioner Gregory Andrews wants feedback on how to deal with the explosion of cats, saying they are a "huge problem" in Australia.
"Australia is home to around 20 million feral cats, according to the latest scientific information. That's not home cats or stray cats, that's feral cats living in the bush," he said.
