Well OK then I concede you win Kiwi303, but I bet you can't do what that 84 year can do in my other thread!

Unfortunately I don't have any photographic evidence, but a cat I had in England (Pilchard) used to bring home a bunny a day, and eat the entire thing - this on top of a can of cat food a day. He was a seriously large fellow, not fat, just big-boned. I reckon his dad was the beast of Bodmin Moor.

Twice he dragged home crows that he'd killed too. I once saw him stalking a cow in a nearby farmers field - talk about ambitious.

When Tiger (him above) was a tiny kitten he disappeared, we found him in the paddock swinging off one the steers tails....

Now I reckon if he could have got him through the cat flap he would have done.......

Ok beat that...........................

lol!

I don't think I can beat a cat trying it's luck on a cow or steer [:P] but Paddy an earlier cat here once had an arguement about who got the rat he was carrying back out by the woodheap near the shed. The pig came snuffling up to see what was up so paddy dropped the dead rat and started swiping and clawing... piggy gave up after a while and headed off with a bleeding nose, having missed paddy every time she took a snap at him all she caught was empty air and a snout full of claws.

Meanwhile another pig came in behind and wolfed down the rat while paddy was so valiently defending it.

talk about a pyhrric victory.

Yes I can beat it, the rabbit was a little bigger, but wouldn't go through the catflap. So it was half eaten on the doorstep and then brought inside.
I didn't take a photo, not really keen on keeping records on massacres. The remains still was as heavy as a house brick.
That was the Burmese who warms the bed most the day, I didn't think it capable of catching anything.

The other Burmese delights on catching mice, and at 3am sitting beside the bed. Growling and crunching on bones.

I see you shiver in anticip......................................................................................ation

No photos, but my cat regularly finds mice but brings them IN the house alive, loses interest then walks off and leaves them. He's supposed to find and kill them OUTSIDE ! But that's ok coz my jack russel/fox terrier cross dog eventually finds them & finishes the job.

My family had a cat many years ago who brought home a small raptor one morning. I didn't get a positive ID, but it was probably a kestrel or a juvenile Cooper's hawk - easily half to two-thirds the size of a cat. If she caught it alive, it would have been a fight worth watching...I suspect that it was wounded, weak or done for by the time she got it. Still a pretty tough puss. She brought home pigeons every now and again, too.

My cat from university days was a great mouser and scrupulous about eating every morsel. I thought that was a fine trait. As she got up in years (late teens) and didn't hunt as well, I would put mousetraps in the garage, which was attached to the house and had a cat flap in the door. She would listen for the sound of a trap snapping on its victim, then get up, go out and retrieve it, and clean up. Nice routine.
