    I have decided that my cat thinks she is a chicken..she loves spending time in the coop...she has been aound my ten week old chicks since they were born and has never tried to scratch or eat one..today i saw her catch a bird that flew into my coop and she killed and ate it...how does she tell the difference between a chick and a bird?

    Cats know the difference between wild animals and tame ones. When I was growing up we had two cats and several rabbits. A couple of the rabbits were house trained and the cats were indoor/outdoor. When we brought the rabbits in we didn't have to worry about the cats bugging them even though they hunted wild rabbits.

    That's funny. I'm pretty sure my cat thinks he's a ninja.

    I have 5 cats, all but one knows that if I hold something and take care of it, it's mine, and they don't touch it. One of mine has a little brain damage and she will attack just because.
