Its apparently gifts, if the cat is not hungry and it hunts for sport, it offers its game as a gift to the ones it likes. They do not waste what they hunt, I respect them for that.I am not own by a cat, but the family next door is. I go out often and find bird, mouse, rat or rabbit parts on my front porch. This cat eats well. I have been told I get the presents because the cat likes me.
Interesting figures Henry although I believe the spider is the ultimate hunterYour cat is a better hunter than almost any animal or human on earth. Estimates range as high as 500 million birds killed by cats each year. That number does not include the millions of small animals and reptiles they kill.
please dont get me wrong, but you say you dislike cats because they kill birds, but like them when they kill 'certain' birds? thats a little misleadingI do indeed respect the hunting powers of the cat, though I dislike them for a couple of reasons:
1. I'm a dog person.
2. I'm an avid birdwatcher, and cats are one of the largest killers of birds in the world. However, I do LOVE it when they bring down a house sparrow or a starling.
