Kitten live feed



  • Completely agree Phil.

    Cats also kill many thousands of wild birds and small mammals (and frogs - my friend's cat used to bring dead frogs into the house as 'gifts').


    I'd dispute the figures actually. A few cats are born hunters, but most are pretty thick. I've had 5 cats spanning several decades and between the lot of them all we've had is 2 dead starling chicks (that had already fallen out of the nest) and one mouse that escaped. 


    According to this 1 in 3 cats hunt.

    Mine proudly brought home a balled up pair of mens socks! But the only living prey I've ever seen evidence of, is his ability to cat and eat spiders.

  • My ex-M-i-L's cat used to catch and eat starlings.  All that would be left was the beaks.  A man I used to work for had a cat which would catch moles as they came up out of their burrows.  There were the frogs my friend used to have to pick up off her carpet.

    The RSPB website says:

    "The most recent figures are from the Mammal Society, which estimates that the UK's cats catch up to 275 million prey items a year, of which 55 million are birds."

  • I just don't think the figures are accurate - from the last RSPB survey I saw (used to be a member) I seem to remember they extrapolate them from figures collected by owners of known hunter cats. It doesn't take into consideration all the really hopeless ones.

    And the solution is simple - if your cat's a hunter make kitty wear a bell.

  • When I was a kid we had a cat that would catch bats. Mother of Muttley could handle clearing away the occasional dead mouse, but mice with wings used to freak her out ... guess who had to do the honours then.

  • Our cats are forever bringing us back present, left on the back door step. Thankfully they are generally intact, but now and then we get brought back a random head (or headless body!!).

    Our 6 month old kitten proudly brought back a squirrel to our back door last week.


     The eyes say cute and innocent 'I'm giving him a hug!!', all whilst kicking the poor little thing with his back legs
