My cat Stone (presently deceased) brought my son Steve a live bird, a
half eaten mouse, and a live snake. He didn't know that no one was
home when he brought the bird in and he had to humt him down during
the night and kill it. The bird was flying around just fine when I
went to bed and was all laid out for a funeral (half eaten) when I got
Steve was home for the snake. Stone raised enough noise to bring Steve
downstairs. Wen Stone saw him he started chewing the head. Fortunately
for the snake Steve grabbed them both and took the snake away and
tossed it out the door.
Within 10 minutes he went through the same thing again but this time
took stone to his room and didn't let him out for a while.
Cats is smart.
