Thread Name: BS: Cat's hunting habits
Subject: RE: BS: Cat's hunting habits
I have three kitties, a lovely calico, and two "mutt" cats (though one looks an awful lot like a Maine coon). One has a propensity for neighborhood rats and often leaves them outside my bedroom door or under the piano, but the other two usually limit themselves to birdwatching. Once, though, on a particularly cold night, the overweight 14-yr. old calico brought in a large lizard. A hunter at heart, it turns out, but needing really slow prey. And incidentally, my cat does not eat the rats she brings home, but on the very rare occasion of catching something else, it is always consumed.
