My young cat is murdering a variety of animals regularly.
he has 2 bells on his collar.
Is there something else I can put on so he cant catch so many animals?? He's mostly white so hardly a camouflaged mog and well fed.
he brings in up to 3 presents daily :(

I have four and three of them are murdering toads.

Unfortunately, even bells are sometimes not that effective as the cats will learn to move without jingling them.

I love my cats but the murdering I can do without.

No help from me, I wish mine would wear a collar so I could put a bell on it, he ran in with a whole wood pigeon the other day... Unfortunately he takes his collars off and buries them, the little sod.

You could always keep him inside.

Not really fair to a cat that is used to going out is it?!

I have the same problem but as both of mine a tree climbers I make sure I get the safety ones- which they then lose and no bell!

Erm, well, some slow down on the number of catches they make as they get older if that helps??

My resident hunter was decked out like big ben with bells, didn't make a bit of difference to his kills, just drove us mad inside the house

I could lie in bed at night in the summer and hear my cat approach across 4 gardens. I decided that she was the Darwin theory in practice, she was catching the deaf ones, or really dim ones! I didn't welcome the presents, but she was always so proud of herself.

He's a cat. That's what cats do. Accept that your pet is acting in an entirely natural manner, or find a home for him. You could try having a word with him I suppose, but then I expect that you've already tried that.

Afraid I let my two girls get on with it though I hate it when they bring in live animals. I won't use collars as are they are both tree climbers. Would be mortified if they got caught up. I have seen cats with front legs stuck thro' collars.

They are only doing what cats do, live with it.
