Why your cat tries to hunt
Your cat has a lot of habits that make perfect sense to you. For example, relaxing in the sunshine seems like a great way to spend an afternoon. However, there are some you don’t’ quite get, like her desire to hunt when she already has food provided for her.
Hunting is something that your pet’s wild ancestors did to keep themselves fed. It’s a trait they passed down to their domesticated counterparts just in case it is needed for self-preservation, but there is more to it than just seeking out something to eat. Your pet may take part in hunting activities to get some exercise or simply because she enjoys doing so. In fact, thinking of it this way, it isn’t surprising that a lot of toys mimic hunting and your pet still seeks them out regularly.
