Why Do Pet Cats Play With Prey?
Cats and Mice
Why do pet cats play with prey? They don't. They're simply prolonging the chase because they enjoy it 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 pet food. Cats aren't cruel, just unthinking. Cruelty is a human concept.
