Adventurous hunters

Cats and cats like to hunt. They are physically, mentally and genetically designed by nature for this purpose.

Do an experiment: if you are sitting on the sofa watching TV with the loud volume and your cat remains impassive in the same room; with dissimulation scratch with your nails the fabric of the furniture, causing a slight rumor. You will immediately observe that the cat becomes alert. You have heard a thud similar to that which rodents make during their feeding. Despite the volume of ambient noise, the cat will have caught the murmur of your fingers scratching the sofa. If you continue making the slight noise, the cat will locate the source of the rumor, and attentive will approach the place with all its muscles prepared in case you have to jump over a prey.

Urban cats have almost no such stimuli; but felines that live in a rural environment are perfectly prepared to perform night beaters in search of prey. That is why they are so lustrous, because they complement their diet with what they hunt.

Cats are not infallible, they also suffer accidents. To jump from the ground to the edge of a work railing can easily do it hundreds of times; but any day you can miss the jump. If they fall from very high, four floors for example, they usually die, but not always.

If they fall from the first floor, it is usual for them to survive and remain aggrieved waiting for you to come down and pick them up. For a time they are careful.

I have been living with cats for a long time, I have lived various happy and unfortunate experiences because of feline errors and fatal unforeseen circumstances. In an article of mine entitled: “The theory of extraterrestrial cats”, I narrated how a young Siamese girl survived a fall from a fourth floor. In the following points I will narrate how other cats were injured in my home.
