On the prowl - can you deter your cat from hunting?

01 September 2016
On the prowl - can you deter your cat from hunting? While hunting is a natural behaviour for cats, it can create a tricky conundrum for cat owners who love wildlife.

It is important to remember that in the wild, cats spend a lot of time on frequent hunting expeditions and being given meals in a food bowl doesn’t necessarily make use of all of a cat’s senses.

While you might not be able to deter your cat from hunting, there are things you can do to reduce it. A new visual guide produced by Cats Protection looks at how to deter a pet cat from hunting as well as giving owners information on why cats hunt and even why they return home with their prey!
