    Here i have been debating if my little old cat could kill one of my chickens.

    No he hasn't but yesterday Spencer (the cat) left us a little surprise by the back door. Ok so it wasn't so little. He's brought home lizards, mice and even rats before. This time he brought home a squirrel. The worst thing about it is the head was off (and next to it) but he ate most of the head, neck, front legs and half of the torso!!!!
    It was a large squirrel too.

    It was the grossest thing ever.

    Now i have no doubt that my cat could take down one of my 21 week old hens. Good thing they are in a pen and not free range.

    Feed his offerings to the chooks! They'll love you... and the cat!

    I read somewhere on this board that someone's chickens were starting to steal mice from the barn cats. [​IMG]

    At least your cat left it on the step. Mine vomited an entire barely digested squirrel on the living room carpet...

    But you know it's REALLY love when they deposit it directly into your shoe, or on your bed. It says "I care". [​IMG]

    No really people this thing was huge....I took a pic if you'd like to see it![​IMG] I am seriously shocked that my cat could kill this thing....and eat as much as he did. If the head hadn't been right next to it i would have thought he got it out of a trap or something.

    Why not feed it to the chooks? They'll think they've died & gone to heaven!
