I'm getting fed up of seeing a pile of feathers where a cat has attacked a bird that has come into my garden. Shouldn't it be compulsory for all cats to have to wear a bell? Hardly any of the cats round here have them.

That sounds like a fair, and adorable solution. Tom Pain is probably thinking it was still down to 5g rays, rather than the neighbours cat.

The bird may have been killed by a sparrowhawk, if one is active in your area. That's probably as likely as it being killed by a pampered pet. It could be a feral cat too. Cats need to be collared to wear a bell, and owners are less likely to put a collar on their cat nowadays because they have them microchipped for indentification. Bells do save bird lives though according to some studies.

Thanks ferret. If sparrowhawks are the ones with the four paws and whiskers then that's what it is.

Maybe while the owners are feeding their cats they could put a bell on at the same time then. The small birds getting attacked in my garden may occasionally be sparrowhawk food but they are not cat food.

Are you suggesting cat owners wear a collar with a bell? Or only during feeding times?

Yes.
We need those special cats that will catch mice but know to leave birds alone.
Or maybe ignore the mice and breed vegan cats.
Anyone for quinoa?

I am a forest cat, very kind and affectionate. I have been raising her since the smallest kitten. When I found her at the trash can, my heart just ached, she was thrown out by the previous owners because she has down syndrome. This I found out later that she has such a disease, but our veterinarian convinced me that cats do not have such a disease and only similar symptoms appear and suggested that I read the article down syndrome cat, after reading which I was convinced that cats do not have such a disease. So love your kitties as they are.
