help my cat has started killing animals

Question Posted Wednesday August 17 2011, 6:51 pm

BB cat has started killing animals every day starting this March. His owner got him from the SPCA when he was a kitten. He was a closet cat. He is now 6 or 7 yrs old. He cleaned the hair from his nipples and he wants to eat all the time. Yesterday he didn't just kill the mouse he dismembered it but he didn't eat it. We tried to keep him in at night but he starts breaking things until we let him out. He has killed bats, birds, mices, rats, goffers and yesterday he killed a humming bird? What's going on, what made him change?

yeah this sadly sounds like this cat needs the op. The one that take of his 'you know whats' this is sure to calm him down. He's already so 'busy' this should calm him down to a normal cats calmness

Your cat killing small animals is nothing out of the ordinary, I wouldn't worry unless he start to charge other animals like a dog or another cat. However from what you've described is normal cat behavior.

My mother owns a cat, She is a 2 year old female that kills moles, birds, mice, chipmunks you name it. This is simply cat nature and it's what they do.

Now as far as breaking things, I'm not exactly sure what you meant here but you mean knocking things over? Cats do love to jump on furniture this is something that can be a simple fix by training your cat. Whenever they jump up on a table you say "No" and put them on the floor. etc

Cats biting themselves can be a sign of fleas or a skin infection. If your cat is biting to the point where it is causing self harm then you need to pay a visit to the vet. This is the season for ticks and fleas and a cat should be frontline every 3 months to prevent skin irritation and fleas spreading. This cat may just need love and affection as you said he once was a closet cat. Many animals I've owned were abused or neglected, Things can all be changed if you spend time with them and train them to behave into a better pet.
