    My mom's cat caught a dove and brought it in to the house, apparently as a gift ('tis the season, you know). Although it had been severly bitten on the back and had lost all it's tail feathers, it was still alive. I picked him up and put him outside up in a tree. He'll probably die, but that's the nature of things between cats and birds.

    And that, ladies and gentlemen, is my christmas story.

    I do that all the time, though sometimes I appreciate that it is kinder just to quickly do them in.

    Kindness? He left the poor thing to death! Kindness would be killing it to stop its pain,or taking care of it,not leaving it to death. And sir,you are a monster!

    Yep, that is a bummer. Animals kill and eat each other, nothing we can do to stop it.

  13. its almost like how we will cowns for food too.. bummer

    :p

    creatures need to eat heh
     
  14. Cats don't generally eat the birds they kill and you can do something about it by keeping the cat indoors. Indoor cats live longer too.

  17. Thank you, but I already knew that. :cool:

    Seriously, cats are real problems for songbirds. Millions are killed every year. Cats aren't native to North America so the birds haven't developped a good defense. They'll smarten up with time, I guess. You can help the birds and the cats by keeping them indoors. Some say it's cruel. A cat that's never been outside wouldn't know any better anyway and they are pets, aka private property, so they don't belong on other people's yard.

    A while back, 60 cat collars were found in a bald eagle's nest. Sweet revenge for the birds. :D
