I woke up this morning and let my cat freddy outside. About an hour later I heard him crying behind the back door. I look out and there he is with a baby bird in his mouth. Grossss!!! he dropped it on my stoop. He was rolling over it and making all these weird noises. He was so proud and happy. ( i think)
This isn't the first time he's done this. Last summer he came home with live baby rabbits!!! I thought they were dead at first but i think they were just knocked out. Now they are huge, bigger then my cat!!
I read when cats go out to hunt and bring home something to their owner it's a sign of affection or a gift??
Well I wasn't sure if the bird was dead so I put him in a box and left him on the picnic table in case he woke up. I didnt want to bury him alive. Or have my dogs dig him up..
Aw, I'm so sorry. It's just instinct. And what acn you do? it's not like you can discipline a cat. Oh, here's a sad and embarrassing story. When I was a kid like 9 0r 10, a friend of mine was going away for the weekend and asked us to watch her parakeet. Well, we had a cat, Zelda, (still have her actually). I'm not clear on what happened, but I think we came home and the bird was out of the cage. It was like slow motion, Zelda lept and grabbed the bird. We chased them all around with a broom ad it was just crazy. Needless to say, the bird was put to rest in the back yard next to Peachry, the hamster Zelda had also killed.
hehe the fun of cat hey. i used to keep my window open in the winter so my cat could come in when it wanted to and all her other little cat friends that made themselves at home! Well one morning i could hear this sqeaking and as i opened my eye my baby was nudging me (or at least i thought so) and was purring like mad, so i went to pet her when she leaped up like i was going to grab something and there was this little mouse sitting on me and another in her mouth. I thought i was going to be sick!
Be happy he did'nt bring you his poop, my dog,once brought his poop to my son and he reach out for it and said thank you teacup he thought it was a toy i died laughing, now he wont do it any more he eats it .so when we see this behavior. i starts him back on his pills which works great. it makes his poop taste bad. i could;nt never figure that one out . you would think it taste bad anyway the way the little devil stink.
