When Hubby and I moved from the city into the country, we brought our cat. We had not a slightest idea that she would actually start mouse hunting. She was so young when we found her, only 5 weeks old. And we had 2 parakeets, yet she never hurt them. In fact, a few times one got out of the cage, she would find where he was and show us. A few days after we got to our destination... she caught a mouse and proudly showed it to us. This has been going on for 2 months, except we notice she catches the mouse in her teeth, then walks with it a bit, then drops and tries to play with it. Is this normal? In the past 2 days she's been hunting rabbits. We got so many cottontails here, and she's been hunting them. Today, I took from her a by cottontail. It wasn't a newborn, was very energetic and eyes wide open. How do we break her from hunting rabbits, without making it so that she she stops hunting mice.
