Thread Name: BS: Cat's hunting habits
Subject: RE: BS: Cat's hunting habits
The "gift-offerings" are wasteful, cruel, and unnecessary given the options that even you acknowledged as viable. The fact that, to your limited knowledge, your cats generally eat what they kill does not apply to most cats. In fact, I don't recall ever seeing a cat eat an entire rabbit. And on the topic of rabbits, they are not a problem in most areas. And what about all the other species killed by cats: birds, squirrels, etc. And coyotes and foxes will hunt near houses and subdivisions if given the chance to adapt. Unfortunately, they will prey on (unnecesarily) free-ranging cats and dogs. When the owners complain, the coyotes and foxes are exterminated.
