Subject: RE: BS: Cat's hunting habits
Agree with Dai totally...

We have a problem at the moment with my cat Monty.

He has become bored of the usual, mice, voles, fieldmice, doormice anything mice and has graduated to rabbits...

Not just the babies, but full grown adults too.

Our garden (which is big) is fast becoming a burial ground of astranomic proportions. (or in Montys case gastranomic)

Monty is always bringing me home presents, but just lately the rabbits are getting me annoyed with him.

He's brought one home alive, after being chased down our road, by a group of local youngsters (5-10 year olds) who saw him with a rabbit, and chased him down to our house.

We opened the door to a barrage of shouts, misses your cats got a rabbit. All 10 of them plus 3 adults were then chasing cat plus rabbit, then rabbit with the fishing net.

That rabbit survived...

He's wearing a bell already, short of equipping him with an early warning system I don't know what else to do!

(even next doors Koi are not safe)
