Top 10 Images of Cats Hunting



Look at that lovable cat purring and maybe even rubbing its face onto the side of the laptop or screen as you read this, so adorable, so cute, maybe they know that this is my Caturday post and have come to read it with you! But at some point in your cat’s family tree his or her family would have been vicious killers ready to strike at a moments notice, hunting pray for what would have sometimes been weeks on end. And it seems that times may not have changed that much at all…

10 – “Well good morning to you mister magpie!

It’s the classic image of cats hunting birds. Forever locked in the food chain battle there is not many a cat that at least tries to catch their feathered prey. If cats could fly there would be some amazing aerial battles that is for sure.

9 – “Must stay low like my mummy taught me, must…stay..low.”

Cats hunting success rate is all down to their training. Often the mother cat is the one that will do all the hunt training rather than the male cat, but deep down it comes from millions of years of evolution from big cat hunting to little cat stalking.

8 – “I have been staring so long my eyes have broken!”

Not living in a Country that has bigger rodents I have not seen cats hunting gophers or other larger prey, only smaller rodents like mice and birds. I have never seen any cats hunting hedgehogs either, but then again you only jump onto one of those once in a lifetime I suppose.

7 – Don’t hunt from inside the box, become part of the box!

It’s the classic cats hunting mice image. Small, quick and enough to make most people jump on the chair. This is the classic Tom and Jerry issue that has been going on for years and using in many a book and tale before that.

6 – Hunting from the dugout.

Sometimes they are hunting nothing, and I have often seen cats hunting noise or maybe a red laser pointer. But often they are old enough to know better and are hunting for pure pleasure. Yes, your cat really is a stone cold killer.

5 – “I’m telling you, Trevor, it was a frog as big as your head!”

If you need cats hunting facts then you need to check out these Scottish fishing cats. I have not only seen them hunt fish with my own two eyes, but I have also seen them dive in and swim after them as well! They truly are a real wild cat.

4 – “Hello Mr Pinky, we meet again!”

Using simple or high-tech toys will grow and develop your cat’s hunting instincts. So play time that is not only fun for you and the cat also mean your cat will hone its skills as a hunter and provider for the animal pack, IE you. Which does sadly mean the better they are, the more “gifts” them will bring you.

3 – The king or Queen of camouflage.

It always makes me wonder what a cat is thinking what they are hunting. Their eyes dart around, checking spotting in all that long grass, how do they spot small birds moving around in all that!? They really are very skilled hunters that is for sure.

2 – The accent art of over-optimism

I have never seen 2 cats hunt together. I always thought they were more solitary hunters, or maybe these 2 very young kittens hunting just don’t know any difference. Whatever the reason I think they have bitten off more than they could chew with this bird that is for sure.

1 – …Soon.

It is not often you get such a stunning image of cats hunting squirrels, but this really is one of the good ones. I am not so sure it was intentional as maybe the cat simply photo bombs the image of the squirrel! Or maybe it is a Photoshop masterpiece.
