Thread Name: BS: Cat's hunting habits
Subject: RE: BS: Cat's hunting habits
I'm just now reading "All My Patients are Under the Bed" by Louis J. Camuti, and he talks about cats bringing prey to their humans to try to teach them how to hunt and kill as their mothers had taught them. It may or may not be a learned behavior, but it's definitely a learned SKILL if the mother cat must teach her young how to do it CORRECTLY.
