In the third of my articles on feral cat behaviour, we'll follow our
feral friend as she hunts for mice.
When I saw my first feral stalk and catch her prey, I was hooked, and spent a good deal of time studying this behaviour. The story I'm posting here is one from my notebooks when a female colony queen stalks and eats a field mouse. I find it interesting to note that while a cat eats all of a mouse: fur, bones, and all, when eatting a bird, they often leave what I describe as a "feather coat", or basically a shell of the outside skin and feathers....now, on to the hunt!
