    How mental are Cats?

    Recently our 2 cats (3 yrs old) have been brining more and more stuff in through the cat flap - not like they donít get fed!

    Today was taking the biscuit.
    Heard muffled meows from our bedroom - suspecting that one of our kitties had somehow locked themselves into a wardrobe or summit went to investigate.

    Next thing we know an adult magpie is flapping and crapping around our room. She couldnít meow because she had a mouthful of magpie!

    Five mins later the bird is out and frees and a miffed kitty sniffing around the room for a bird.

    I know itís just in their nature as hunters but their too efficient (except when it comes to mice!) but wish theyíd calm it down a bit!

    Put a bell on them if they are that bad. They think they are contributing to the household bringing home food.

    My cat has brought home some random things over the years. Highlights include part of an inner tube from a bike tyre, a bird that had clearly been dead for weeks, a crows egg and, my personal favourite, an unopened pack of Nandos peri peri chicken crisps.

    Mine brought home a dead frog, by the time we found it it was dried out. I know it was dead because between then they have never caught anything. Just one of them left now and confident he wont catch anything.
    My parents had a farm kitten and a total hunter, my dad woke up to a massive noise and found the cat dragging a rabbit through the catflap!

    They're just bringing in food to share with you, happy in their environment.

    I don't really like dealing with the remains of what ours brings in (usually just a tail and what looks like a kidney if it's a mouse) but by god it's better than dealing with a mouse that he hasn't killed and trying to catch the little blighter to let him out again. Used to buy him collars with bells but he always managed to take them off. Latest one was a quid out of B&M and he hasn't figured out how to get it off yet - best pound I ever spent as he's only brought a couple of things home in the three or four months since I bought it.

    Many years ago living in a basement tenement flat off Easter Road, our cat brought a rat into the house through an open window in the middle of the night. Rat was not dead - far from it. It took ages - and the family dogs - to eventually corner the rat and remove it.

    Reading this thread it's almost like none of you have taken the time to properly train your cats!

    Now, whilst my cat won't fetch a stick if I throw it, she will stop clawing my bald head in the dead of the night if I scream loudly enough....

    Small gains people, that's what it's all about

    One of ours will play fetch with scrunched up paper.

    Our sadly deceased Hamish would leave something dead behind the front door nearly every night.

    Love having cats around one is sitting on my knee just now.
