It's been nearly 30 years since 10-year-old Kevin Collins disappeared, but police searched a San Francisco home this week in connection with the case.

The report comes on the heels of a petition to ban cats in New Zealand by one resident citing similar concerns. Just how lethal are our small feline friends?
