Comet killed a little fluffy baby bunny this mourning... I yelled at her & she ran.
Should I kill her now?
Or just poke her with forks to show her it doesn't feel nice?

Okay, seriously, it just pisses me off a little. But if I went outside & found HER little head ripped off, my sense of loss would be balanced by the idea that, hey, it's not like SHE hasn't done that to other creatures...

Cat Community ATTACK!!!

Go Comet! Bunnies is fast. That's impressive.

Cats are so top of the suburban food chain.

I was house sitting for my Dad once, and walked into the front yard to find a rabbit's head on the front step. A very long trail of intestines let me to the headless rabbit body, with the cat (who was smaller then the rabbit) happily nibbling at the bunny's stomach cavity.

Kitties can be f'n brutal.

Nature's way, yada yada. Quite often they'll bring back a little something for the pride to eat. That would be you. (Eww!)

Proper ettiquette if you don't want to accept the offering is to sit by the cat while he/she eats.

And yeah, an impressive kill, though a bit excessive (really no need for decapitation/dismembering. A snapped neck is cleaner and just as fatal).

Really? That might explain some of my cat's weirdness.

She's good about just grazing and not over eating. So, I just have big old food dispenser full of food for her. However, she'll often times all out sprint over to her food dish when I'm near by and meow at me like crazy. If I pet her she starts chowing down and purring like crazy. If I ignore her she just walks back and forth in front of the food.

She will eat on her own of course, but she seems really happy if I'm right by her while she eats.

Chris, before you go to war against your cat, realize this: You NEVER win a war with a cat, at least not without killing the cat. He's more devious than you, and far more patient. He WILL poop in your shoe. Can you do the same to him? No; no you cannot.


I say that whilst in the middle of being in a state of war with one of my cats. We'll work it out, but only after I apologize, I'm sure. Meanwhile, I get onto him, and he does evil shit while I'm not home.

Your cat killed a bunny. Be glad it wasn't YOU that he killed. 'Cause you know he's thought about it.

There's just no room for things like 'fluffy' in the animal world Big 'C'. 'Tis pretty cruel out there. You ever see the way some of those wilderbeast are taken down by lions in the Serengeti! That stuff is brutal and difficult to watch... and lets face it domestic cats are still Cats. The instincts are still there.... Comet is merely doing what she was programmed to do.

By the way Chris. Cool name for a cat :D

Another kitty-cruelty tale: The same cat who beheaded the bunny at my Dad's house once caught a prairie dog, chewed his two front legs off, then chased him around the yard. Poor little thing just had to use it's chin as a sled, and push as hard as he could with his remaining back legs.

Very sweet cat, otherwise.

As least Fluffy didn't leave the head and other assorted parts under your bed.

My hell-kitten got in the habit of bringing the bunnies into the house and chasing them here. I saved a few. Didn't save others.

It's just what cats do. Especially hell-cats.

Not sure Comet woulda done so well against the Bunnies around here, they're aggressive little gits - they chased the Raccoons out of the park to obtain feeding rights to the two apple trees, and it was kinda funny watching an Omnivore get chased off by an Herbivore half it's size...

Lepus *do* have a nasty streak, under certain circumstances.

The ones around here are smart, too, one of em was being (unbeknownst to me) chased by a cat, runs around the corner, sees me, and hides BEHIND me, and just as I am wondering about such bizarre conduct, round the corner comes one of the local cats, who takes one look at me and still annoyed by having their intented turf fight with blackie broken up the night before cause I didn't wanna hear the noise... takes off the other way.

I look back at the bunny merrily hopping off, all but giggling up it's sleeve, hmmph.

Nature can be pretty hardcore, and you can't really fault a cat for being a cat - but if you REALLY don't want them bringing home trophies, you can try attaching a bell to their collar, just don't be surprised if they manage to disconnect it, convince another cat to chew it off for em, or use ambush tactics to keep it from giving them away to prey - blackie does that, she has a rather audible bell attached, but will hunker down in the bushes and remain perfectly still till she pounces, so mostly hearing that bell means imminent doom.

Still, it's worth a try.

At least YOUR cat didn't bring you a fregmekkin HUGE bloody spider, while you were still half asleep, and still kickin on the assumption you'd wanna play with it too!

I presume she took my shrieking and battering it with a pillow (which is SOOOO getting tossed and replaced, yick!) for "playing" with it, cause she seemed pretty pleased with herself.

Either that or she was taking revenge for being cut off table food, ya never know.

Friggin spiders, yeeeugh *shudder*.

Isn't that a type of ninja training?

Not one of mine, Cybersnark - one of the locals, I am a nightwatchman, and have a close affiliation with the nocturnal wildlife, so I know all the local cats, Blackie, Flygirl, Pancake, Rumble - Nitwit moved out with his owners though, I miss him.

And yeah, Blackie is ninjakitty, but Flygirl is WORSE, she climbs trees and ambushes nesting birds for midnight snacking, and has a tendancy to jump down out of trees right next to you all of the sudden like at 2-3am in the morning, which can be right disconcerting, yanno - she's like a badass kitty paratrooper.

As for my not-allowed-outside cats, Kallista is more mafia godmother, and Puppy is viking berserker, one's the brains, the other is the brawn... twas puppy that brought me the spider, and when she gets all after a bug, it gets wacky around here.

Thanks Chris. You started something. Just as I was going to bed the fat cat (not the hell-kitten) came in with bunny hindquarters.

Gah! *shudder*

Operative: "Its worse than you know..." Mal: "It usually is."


I have owned cats for 30+ years, do not let them out, the ONLY reason they want out is to hunt. Roll up a newspaper or magazine secure it with a rubber band so its ready prop it by the door and when they make a move grab them by the neck scruff and swat them a couple of times and loudly say "NO". This is the only way to stop the behavior. I have one who use to try to get out, two years ago she brought me 3 mice and 4 birds(the very small birds) its always in the spring. They 'new' animals haven't learned that there is 'death' out there, poor babies. She doesn't try to get out any more, and it didn't take but maybe 3 rounds with the newspaper to stop her.
This is what my vet told me to do, to try to stop the slaughter, so I don't want to hear that I am abusing them.

My kitty doesn't care much about getting out. Once in a blue moon she'll walk right out the door when I get home, but she doesn't go very far. She just sniffs around a bit and meows. She just lets me pick her up and bring her right back inside.

Our cats live on a farm, so this sorta thing is kinda encouraged. Kinda there job.

Although yes, having a 15lb jack russel-sized cat drag a 10lb bunny into the yard and then proceed to redecorate with entrails is not a whole lotta fun.

my cat Theo killed a bunny a couple of weeks ago too...he brought it home and was really sad about it and kept trying to wake it up. I was like" Honey you played it to death". the next night he caught a mouse, batted it around for a while then let it go he's been mopey ever since as if he's rethinking his cat instincts...hard to help him as I don't speak cat. he's also been digging a lot of holes lately and then filling them in loosely...so we are constantly stumbling.
