And I tried bells for Hope once,it only drives her nuts.
Talk about cats being killers mine has a thing with spiders,when she has one,she will take her time removing all legs and she sits looking at the helpless spider....
Sounds like your cat has a mean streak in it.
As for my kids, none of them go after squirrels or birds. Mom taught them that tiny furries like voles and mice would make us happy so that's what they bring us. They play with them for hours after they're dead but don't eat them.
Today when I went out to feed them, 3 of them came in the house. The Runt, the larger gray, and Roll-y. it's too hard to get them out. i wish I could keep them in the house but the boss says NO. I've been petting the larger gray one outside when feeding and he's getting used to it now. Same with the white faced one but it's still too skittish. Patience is the key to that one.
Mom no longer wants anything to do with me since I'm paying attention to the kids. She can be mean at times and jealous when I holler at her for attacking the kids. She gives me the evil eyes and walks away.
