    Yes, cats are predators. Imagine if they had guns.

    Our neighbor's cats are of the killer variety--ours is an indoor cat. We've had at least one pair of cardinals for several years that we've been able to protect so far but not for lack of trying on the part of their cats and we have lost other birds because of them. Unfortunately, nothing we can do about it other than try to be vigilant and shoo them off when we see them in our yard.

    Ya gotta look at where the domesticated cat came from. It's pure instinct.

    I understand and which (at least here) is why it's illegal to harm them because of it. But doesn't stop us from trying to put the fear of Gan into them if we catch them in the act of trying to kill a bird. Have to say this for them, they're good runners.

    I love watching my cats get all fired up when they're outside and a bird lands in the vicinity. The cat will first crouch down low to the ground with it's tail up in the air all twitchy-like, flicking it back and forth, pupils all dilated, ears back. But they usually maintain this position for too long and the bird just up and flies away! I don't remember the two cats I currently have (or should I say they have me!!) ever getting a bird or any other small animal. No, I take that back, now I do remember the black one bringing in a mouthful of feathers once. The orange cat, huh uh, no way, she's way too- shall we say- well proportioned to ever get a bird!!

    Even though he's inside and there's no chance he could get to them, our cat gets quite agitated and makes this weird chattering noise when he sees one getting too close to his window.
