Is having a pet ecologically sound?

Just a question that came to mind for me recently. Are domesticated animals consuming food people could use? Producing waste that pollutes? I am a cat lover and we have three indoor cats (one is a service animal) and feed three feral cats. (Used to be four feral cats but one has moved on.....and we did trap and have all those animals fixed as well as several litters of kittens which we trained and adopted out.)
I, personally, think their companionship and help is a fair trade for the food, cans, and all that are needed to keep them alive and healthy......but I can't find any info that says whether it's truly good for the ecology.
What do you think?
