Have 4 cats at home.

ALL were found on the street.

My Vet, if you adopt a feral animal, will only charge 'half-price' for examinations and shots. Any overnight boarding (for a 'fixed' female) is FREE!!!

Hi Kitty People!

I am trying to figure out whether something is normal cat behavior or not. When Zsa Zsa, who is about 6 months old, happens upon "prey" (say a tasty looking bug or a spider out of reach) she meows at it while she tries to stalk and catch it. It seems to me that this is a bad move for a predator. Announcing one's presence to one's intended victim before one "does it in" gives the intended prey a warning and ups the odds that your snack will successfully get away.

We've never had a cat who has vocalized while hunting before, and we've had about 7 cats over the years. Something tells me that if Zsa Zsa were a feral kitty, without the benefit of a food bowl that is filled daily by her dutiful house monkeys, she would hunt so poorly that she would pretty much starve to death.

So is vocally announcing your presence during a hunt in the realm of normal cat behavior? Is Zsa Zsa so sure of her success that she is emiting a victory cry, or does she simply lack kitty cat impulse control?

I can see this I got carried away in the other form, and this pix should be here. This is the Fryja cat.

Hi Clyde,
When it says Banished and gives a user ID it just means the poster broke one of the forum rules and has been banned for awhile. In this case it's Mark again and he should be back in a few days.

She is too young yet to master hunting nuances, so it is kitty frustration at not being able to catch it immediately. Seen it before.
