Cats are born to be good at hunting mice. Actually a normal cat does it as a natural instinct. This shouldn’t lead to any problem, but what you need to know is to discourage her from disturbing garden wildlife. A collar placed with a bell will be used to warn any unsuspecting birds and give them enough time to fly off before the cat approaches them.
Some cat owners said that they have experienced some odd occasions that their cat left them a little gift of a mouse or something bigger on their doorstep. Cat researchers are not able to explain this strange phenomenon, but they think it may due to the following reasons:
First, the cat wants to show their affection for their owner. They may think their favorite food may be your favorite too.
As a result of a parenting instinct. Cats have natural instinct to provide food for their family.
They go out to have hunting in order to seeking food for their family. So they like to wear their prey out, stalking and chasing until their prey is exhausted. And they prefer to do this on their territory.
Prevention. How to keep your cat from hunting? I think the only effective way is to make sure she remains an indoor cat. But this may tend to be not prctical, especially when she gets used to going out and about. You could try to spend more playtimes with her at home. You can do activities such as chasing toys, playing with other cats, which may be interest your cat more and keep them from going out to hunt for food gradually.
Clean up quickly. Keep in mind to dispose anything that’s been caught as soon as possible. If you don’t clean up her prey quickly, she will repeat the hunting again and again. You can wear a pair of rubber gloves to do this particular job!
