I cannot believe it but I think my cat killed a bird. She sleeps 23 and a half hours a day and spends the rest of the time eating and sitting like a spinx before sleeping again. This morning was as per normal but I noticed a sorta dead bird about two feet away from her favorite sleeping spot on the flower bed and bird feathers all over her sleeping spot. Could she have killed the bird? But she did not bring it up to me as an "offering" which birds usually do for their owners. I had to pick up the dead bird and put it in the trash. Yucks to think that I would cuddle her and nuzzle up to her face, etc.

She's a cat, and that's what cats do. Nature isn't always pretty.

Despite her usual appearances to the contrary, I'd say, yep, she most likely killed a bird.

It's a CAT! They kill stuff and they don't always want to give us presents.

Well, would you?
Hi,
Be grateful it's not a live mouse. Kim brought me home alive baby mouse, yesterday . I put it in the garden shed and she did the same again today. It's in a cat carrier, uninjured as far as I can tell . If it survives tonight I'll take it to a wildlife rescue. Another cat could have killed the bird or she could have killed it herself. Its very sad but it happens .

Wet Nile Virus, pretty much over most of the U.S. now, including most western states. If the bird had feathers all around it, though, it sounds like it was killed. You can usually tell the difference between a bird that just dropped dead and a bird killed by a cat. Personally, I wonder why we don't see more dead birds laying around. There are zillions of birds and they only live a year or 2 naturally, so where are their bodies? In rural areas, I suppose predators get them but in big cities, etc., I don't know where they go. I seldom see a dead bird in my neighborhood but there a ton of living ones. I don't think cats generally eat an animal that has died of natural causes and we don't have any natural predators in our neighborhood.

Things that make you think. Emotion: smile One time I was driving down the road and a duck fell out of the sky and landed on the road in front of me. I always wondered what happened to it and why it was flying if it was sick. Maybe a heart attack or something; I doubt it was shot (here, city) but you never know.

I'll bet you don't prowl around on roof tops too much. They probably huddle down somewhere, not feeling well, and then die in place on the aforementioned rooftops, on cornices, under overhangs, in the same kind of places they'd nest.
