Your Outdoor Cat Brings You Home a Present

CAT MOUSEYour outdoor cat wanders the neighborhood and occasionally will find a mouse of other small animal, kill it and present it to you. You probably are not pleased, so why does she do this?  Cats are natural born hunters Cats allegedly kill billions of small animals every year in the United States alone. This does not make them evil or dangerous. They are well adapted to a carnivorous life.  Many cats don’t eat their prey and sometimes they don’t even kill it.  In the wild a mother cat will teach their young how to eat their food by bringing home dead or injured prey. When a female cat places a dead animal of the steps or porch, she is showing her natural role as a mother and a teacher. You , the owner are her surrogate family and she is bringing you a”present” because she knows that you would not be able to catch that mouse on your own. So never scold her because she is acting out of instinct.

Remember, your pets count!

Great music all the time on THE EDGEWATER INTERNET RADIO NETWORK!
