she is a real hunter!
I posted a few weeks ago about collars on cats & I did get her a collar with a bell in the hope that it would stop her bringing in 'presents' for us. She usually gets the birds from my stupid neighbour's patio where she will insist on feeding the birds on the ground.
It is now getting worse as she has discovered mice as well as birds.
She never kills or even seems to hurt anything- she just brings them in & lets them loose in the house. Yesterday we had a wood pigeon in the sitting room in the middle of the afternoon! A few nights ago it was a little mouse in the bedroom.
The mouse was the 3rd that week but first one to make it upstairs & they were all caught & returned to the garden with no apparent injury but probably a bit traumatised.
We had a blue tit last week- not a mark on it & it flew away when I put it on bird table.
The pigeon flew madly round the sitting room until I managed to open front door & he flew into hall & out of the door having ignored the open windows.
She has no interest in them as food or even playthings- it seems they are just presents for us.
Now I like mice - had a pet one when I was young -but I am terrified of flying birds - luckily DH was at home yesterday & took control.
Anyone had a cat that grew out of this habit-? She is not yet 2 so still young. The others never bring anything in or show any interest in wildlife at all. She idolises me & follows me around all day- I can't even go to the loo in peace- & DH firmly believes these are just her gifts for me.
I'd rather have chocolate!!
