Why your cat hunts
You make an effort to be there for your cat and you spend a fair amount of time meeting her needs. However, even with a full bowl of food in the house, your pet will still hunt when outside from time to time. Why is this?
Hunting is an innate skill that your pet is naturally drawn to. Her wild ancestors relied on hunting to keep them well-fed. While your pet doesn’t need to do this, she still has the urge to stalk, chase after, and pounce on prey. In fact, you may notice that a lot of your activities with her at playtime mimic these tactics. In this case, your pet is likely hunting to have some fun when outside and taking advantage of an opportunity that had presented itself.
