Almost as fun as when you find the remains of a gift they just couldn't resist eating themselves. Was a pile of guts on the walkway a couple days ago. Just didn't want to really focus on it. But I am pretty sure it was mouse remains.
Horsie used to bring me gifts a lot...he was quite the hunter..he brought home a jack rabbit once, that was as big as he was...I have no idea how he caught such a thing!
Corky hasn't brought me anything..he didn't have his mother long enough to teach him how to hunt, and I am not doing it!
I think that might be a myth about needing a mother to teach them to hunt. I was told our Truffles and Pixel lost their mother at 2-3wks and they are remarkable hunters. Maybe someone else here could comment.
Maybe it is partly true...and it is more up to the individual cat, than due to the teachings of their mother...from what I have noticed in all the cats I have had, the ones that spent time with their mothers, were all good hunters. Horsies mother, Fuzz taught all of her kittens how to hunt mice and other things...
