Well this is the one part I feel most guilty about with my outdoor cats. They do kill some creatures that I wish they hadn't. I don't think any of my neighbors miss the gophers tearing up their lawn but now and then there is a bird and my heart sinks. The graphics were funny but the subject matter wasn't.

To me this was hysterical.

I'm not insensitive, just know that its nature (even Disney called this the circle of life). So a dark topic made light of - and, watch your back! We learned a deep dark cat secret.

Somewhat funny and somewhat informative! And somewhat sad...

Thanks for sharing.

I wonder how many cats were used in the study.

I also checked out a couple others that were listed! Cat vs internet was cute!!

An everyday family name; A particular name;

I saw that. My cats would drop all kinds of things to get my attention esp if they are hungry. I like more of dark humor but still funny. I like the "failed experiment"

I must be a real stick in the mud because I didn't find it funny at all. I found it macabre and thought it looked liked it was written by a anti-cat, bird loving person.

I too found it looked like anti-cat material. Doesn't really belong on this site.

Has anyone added up the number of chickens killed to feed the human population.

Has anyone calculated the amount of human food rodents eat. Mice, by the way, are cannibalistic when food is short.

Croiws and ravens will raid songbirds nests for the eggs and young chicks...they eat the chicks live.

I could go on, but what's the use. I hope not more anti-cat propaganda here.

Well, put me in the hilarious column. That was so funny....as I picked up a dead, bloated frog from the living room rug this morning! Don't know where it came from but it must have been hidden for awhile before he/she decided to share. I'm not a sadist but cats will be cats...and it is healthy for them to hunt. It's in their genes. All you who feed raw should be in favor. The only thing that has grossed me out was when I told my vet about Sammy starting to taste his mice catches. He looked at me, smiled and said...."Yeah, they go for the nice crunchy head first". Could have done without that picture in my head!
