Default Wild cats

Taking care of a neutered female outside. This morning it ate a full
meal and then left. One hour later, it was back on the porch and I
saw it swat at the opening to its Omega Paws litter box. Confused, I
stepped out and noticed some feathers lying around. In the box, the
bird was still alive and very alert (an understatement). So I reached
in and carried it out in my hand. Raised it to take a look and ZOOM
it flew across the way and up into a tree. It lost a few feathers and
a tiny amount of blood, but it flew very well.

I suppose the bird was being kept fresh until the cat got hungry.
Maybe it could use a small refrigerator and microwave...


I once wrestled a bird away from one of my cats and it looked in
pretty bad shape, feathers pointing in all directions and some blood.
Then it just flew out of my hand straight into a nearby tree. They can
look pretty bad and still be mostly ok.

But your outdoor cats have a litterbox? I sometimes let my indoor cats
out into my fenced-in backyard, but they come back in to use the
litterbox! My outside cats don't have a litterbox though.
