My cat is an amazing hunter, sadly. He does it for fun! We live in a neighborhood with lots of outdoor cats. Thomas likes to hang out with them and relax outside. I think cats should at least be walked to get a little outdoor time, but that's just my opinion.

My cat killed 3 mockingbird babies.

I couldn't have been more proud.

^ LOL.

Love the cartoons.

My murder cat likes to pretend he kills 2X a week, but really we can't count bugs.

If we ever got Starlings in to the wildlife rehab center, we were mandated to humanely euthanize them. We could not release them back into the wild.

We live in the country and have an indoor/outdoor cat. After finding mice in our cars and having to spend a few hundred dollars to repair damage done from chewing wires, you appreciate their contribution.
