Thread Name: BS: Cat's hunting habits
Subject: RE: BS: Cat's hunting habits
It is universally documented that Coyotes readily adapt to semi-urban (and even urban) environments. The fact that you don't see them in your backyard at high Noon doesn't mean that they aren't there. If they aren't, then it is probably due to factors mentioned in my last message. And I have to admit that you are starting to lose considerable credibility. First you claim that your cat consistently kills rabbits (because the neighborhood is overrun with them), now you are saying that it is mainly shrews and voles. Plus, you claimed that many of these kills were gift-offerings. Cats don't eat gift-offerings because they are killing them for you, not themselves. Please get your story straight. And you have again ignored my comments about the killing of birds. It is simply assinine to let cats prey on birds such as quail, pheasants, ducks, etc. Lastly, you must have very special cats as I have never known of one to kill and eat a possum, woodchuck (extremely rare) or an entire rabbit.
