ou might loathe the idea of your cat going on a hunt outside. Maybe you love birds or are just incapable of handling small carcasses on the floor. For cats, hunting is standard behaviour. Although keeping a cat indoors may prevent it from actually killing anything, it will still need a way to express this, one of its most natural instincts, and not all cats will be content living indoors. Similarly, if you’re just getting a cat to deter vermin, you don’t want to end up with one that prefers to lounge around rather than go hunting, shooting, or fishing! Older cats are probably much less likely to hunt than younger cats, and It’s difficult to predict a cat’s behaviour because some don’t care at all.
