Why Do Pet Cats Play With Prey?

Cats, Mice, Birds
Why do pet cats play with prey? They don’t. They are simply prolonging the chase because they enjoy the chase so much. Pet cats don’t usually eat their prey because they are raised to eat canned food and are too well fed to be hungry. Are cats or people to blame? People compound the offence by buying factory farmed at food. Cats are not cruel - just thoughtless. They have no comprehension of cruelty. Cruelty is a human concept.
