Hi everyone,

Has your cat ever caught something random and brought it home?

Oliver and Nubia luckily only “catch their toys” 🙂

Thanks,

  1. From the look on the cat’s face the fisherman better not try to take it away.

    When I lived in the countryside in North Carolina we had a “cat window” that allowed the cats (and various other critters) to go in and out at will. They were always bringing presents….baby mice (tiny, pink flea infested things), lovely little bunnies, birds of all sorts, moles, etc. But I drew the line the day I walked in and found a snake in my kitchen. Okay, so it was a black garden snake (not poisonous) about two feet long and as big around as my index finger but it was still a snake and I’m petrified of snakes. Home alone and my husband’s office partner when I called thought it was the funniest thing he had heard. After he stopped laughing he suggested I sweep it out the door with a broom which is what I did.
    Oh, one of the critters that came in was a possum with a taste for crunchy cat food. We swept him out the door with the broom too.

    And any animal that was alive when they were brought in was rescued and taken out to the woods and let go (bunnies, mice, birds etc).

  2. Rom never caught a fish, but one fine spring day, he caught a bird and brought it inside. My sister-in-law snatched it up in a paper towel and put it outside in the trash – all the while lecturing Rom about killing things… She took a bag of trash out about a half hour later and when she took the can’t lid off, the bird flew out. Apparently it had fainted and Liz nearly did, too.

  3. One of our cats, Scruffy, when I was growing up used to bring worms home *shudder*. My cat Scooby was an absolute master at catching the cellophane wrappers from cigarette packets lol. We lived next door to a pub, back in the day when smoking was still allowed, so she seemed to have an endless source for her prey. And Rory once came home with half a sausage. We have no idea where she got that from but suspect someone at the old folks complex across the way might have given it to her lol. Not that Rory has *ever* looked even vaguely under nourished 😛

    1. My two watch the crows on the roof of the house across the street – and I repeat their words to them all the time. Do you think they ever blush when getting caught? Think again.

  4. We didn’t, but when Angel Céleste and Angel Loupi could go outside freely, one day the came back home with a big piece of bacon ! Purrs

  5. Our black-and-white cat is the hunter – the other one is too lazy…
    Lizards (with and without tails) mice, baby birds and once a small egg – without breaking it! You could see the tooth marks, but the shell wasn’t broken. We also had a bat, which I though was dead and it wasn’t… I picked it up in a paper towel and it moved. I think you could have heard me scream three streets away. The bat seemed to just be stunned, and flew away after a couple of hours recovery time in a shoebox.

  6. Growing up we lived next to a ditch and our cat Fletcher would bring home a rat almost every night. Occasionally a snake or bird but mostly rats. One year in jr. high school science class I earned a lot of extra credit by bringing those fresh kills into the science teacher.

  7. hello katzenworld its dennis the vizsla dog hay nope my kitty sisters wer mor the types of cats hoo sat in their beds waiting to be brawt things then the kind wot went owt and got things themselves!!! ha ha ok bye

  8. Many years ago, when mom had indoor/outdoor cats, one brought home a shrimpy, crawdaddy thing, probably from a neighbor’s pond. She heard it flopping around on the porch and thought it was blowing leaves.

    1. Thats an interesting present. My neighbours cat used to steal another neighbours koi karps on a refular basis. He when had to nurse them back to health in a fish tank before returning them as they were alove but half descaled… Too embarassed to tell the other neighbour. Until one day he got caught at the attempt of returning it! Turned out the other guy installed a camera due to missing fish – apparently not all victims survived. So you can imagine the talk of that LOL
